Jeep XJ, TJ, LJ, ZJ & MJ Y Link 1 Ton Steering Kit

We have been manufacturing steering kits and components for many many years. Throughout that time we have been repeatedly asked to build a welded kit. The Ruffstuff Jeep heavy duty steering kit is the result and here are the features that make it stand out as the strongest and most durable while keeping the price fair. One of the biggest problems people have faced over the years when moving to larger tires and lifts are dramatically increased instances of bump steer/roll steer and potentially death wobble. When using the factory T link steering a compression will cause a toe out situation immediately followed as the vehicle unweights by an extreme toe in situation. Using a complete tie rod as you do with a Y Link you eliminate the constant toe in/toe out motion caused by the Inverted T design itself. That motion itself essentially is what death wobble is (constant toe in/toe out movement).

After reaming your knuckles and pitman arm to the GM one ton taper this kit will bolt into XJ, MJ, TJ, LJ and ZJ axles.

This is a bolt in replacement for factory steering on vehicles with up to a 4" lift. You will need to increase the knuckle taper to account for the much stronger 3/4 taper vs the stock 5/8 taper on the pitman arm and knuckles.

All tubing included for both the tie rod and draglink are 1020 1.5" x .250 wall DOM. The large diameter and thickness of the forged 1 ton tie rods make these the strongest steering kits available.

The tubing is cut bent and welded here in our shop by professional American welders. Our fabricators constantly challenge themselves to be the best and are known for extreme quality work.

Looks great, strong as heck, plan on three hour alignment charge as others mentioned though. As long as the shop has a heads-up, they should do it.
This Kit works GREAT on my 97 ZJ

This is an amazing kit from RS, I would buy this kit again and recommend it to anyone looking for a HD 1 ton steering kit.

Beefy as can be, but so far 2 shops have told me they cant align it. They don't like aligning this style because it takes much longer.

Awesome upgrade. Legit. Would like to attach a photo.
Pure beef at the expense of ease of adjustment.

The steering is beefy as all get out. Something to keep in mind though… adjusting the alignment on this steering is more involved than other kits. You can’t simply turn the links to adjust becasue of the bends you need to remove the links from the knuckles and turn the tie rod ends instead. Not a big deal but something to be aware of
