1 Ton Steering on a daily driver?

Is it a good idea? What are the downs and ups if any? I'll do it at some point but should I wait until its solely a trail rig. The vehicle is a 1999 Jeep Cherokee XJ, 6.5" running on 33's. the tie rod is slightly bent which is the prompt for an upgrade.

why not. Just cost more than stock. common in the Jeeps cj-jk's to upgrade them.

Depends what you mean by one ton. Are you talking about doing true cross-over/high steer? That's always a good idea but not really a bolt on mod so you have to be prepared for fab work on the steering and track bar. Be careful going to any of the inverted T setups that are out there. I know there are people that are happy with them, but personally I find the tie rod roll that is unavoidable with that design ranges from really annoying to dangerous and I would never run one of those. That leaves upgrading the stock inverted Y which can be done pretty well and on a pretty close to bolt on basis. You get something like Currie and if you want an extra strong tie rod like Savvy offers for the setup and if you want to get creative you can flip the tie rod on the driver's side to the top of the knuckle. That's a decent solution for how easy it is.
