        Not as shown

        Be advised the photo is NOT the steering assembly for a YJ you will receive should you order this product. The RR YJ unit does not incorporate the jamnut system shown in the photo but the sleeve type clamps akin to the OE steering assembly. Extreme Terrain to their credit did do right by taking the unit back and covering return shipping as the photo provided by RR is a misrepresentation of what you will receive.

        Rugged Ridge full linkage

        Good product. Heavier duty than OEM. Installation was simple, parts assembled easily. Fixed my front end steering " loose condition", Installed on my 1988 YJ with 4" lift and 33x12.5x15 tires. Remember to install grease fittings and grease the ends properly. All parts necessary were included. Worth the money if you are looking to upgrade.

        Fit right nice

        Whats there to say the part was just what the jeep doctor ordered to make it steer the way i want with the strength to rock. Crawl with less worry than the factory parts

        Improved steering

        This kit in combination with the ball joint replacement kit from alloy USA improved the handling of my 25 old yj too factory new feel

        Good system but not as pictured

        I bought an installed this kit recently. The kit is no longer configured as pictured; what comes in the box is a different set up. Instead of full length drag link and tie rod that have TRE's located in the ends via jam nuts, you get shorted links with passenger side TRE's permanently crimped in place. The driver's side TRE's are attached via open coupler sleeves (see pic attached). This means that there is less length of the DOM tubing, and the TRE's on passenger side are much less serviceable. If a pass side TRE's needs to be replacerd, the whole link assembly will have to be swapped out instead of just that bad TRE. The kit fit well and installed quickly. There is no binding anywhere and it works well. I have been assured by Omix-ADA/Rigged ridge that there is no strength loss due to the shorter tubes, but I really wish this setup was as serviceable as the configuration pictured with full length tubes and all TRE's removable.
