Off-road 4-wheeling, especially with big wheels and tires, can put a strain on your Jeep’s steering system, causing parts to wear prematurely. The constant back and forth motion of the steering wheel when negotiating difficult terrain can cause the shaft couplings to become worn and loose. This looseness will create excessive play in the steering wheel, making it difficult to maintain directional control.
The engineers at Omix-Ada are Jeep enthusiasts as well, so they’re familiar with problems encountered by Jeep owners and in a position to do something about them. They upgraded the strength of this steering shaft to eliminate weakness found in the original unit. This shaft can withstand all the abuse encountered wheeling and still deliver precise steering feel. Omix-Ada is so confident in the quality of this steering shaft that it’s backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
