1 Ton Steering

So I wanted to show what I picked up yesterday from my buddy for free who decided not to use the JCR 1 ton steering he bought a while ago.

All I have to do is buy some jam nuts (wherever they sell them) And i had to buy two other tie rods for the driver side of the setup as he already had two NEW tie rods for the passenger side. Since the local auto parts store here does price matching I got the last two tie rods for 23$.

Now who has installed this setup? and which part number of tie rods goes where on the drivers side (connecting to pitman arm & drivers knuckle)?

One of the new tie rods.


And one of the bars with an ugly color of tan on it...


And one of them scraped up and just about ready for paint.


Gonna paint them bright green

Just check out their instructions. http://jcroffroad.com/install_guides/1tonsteering.pdf

product page: http://www.jcroffroad.com/mm5/mercha...uct_Code=1TNST

I've got the OTK steering, but haven't got the HP30 done yet to put it on ...

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Yeah no the instructions don't specify which TRE goes where so I figured that I would ask.

And why not paint them green? I gotta make sure I keep with the tradition of us offroaders in WA

Well I painted it green and it looks pretty damn good!! I'll post pics up in a moment.

BUT I still don't know which tie rod goes to the pitman arm and driver's knuckle, as I CANNOT get through to them by phone or anything.

And is there a difference between the UTK setup compared to the OTK setup? (I missed how the TRE is reamed already for UTK, this question is solved)

If ANYBODY knows which TRE goes at which point let me know. As this is ridiculous that I can't find the info on this.

I have Moog 1 ton TRE's and one is going to be right hand, and the other is left hand for the tie rod. It really doesn't matter which one goes where with a straight bar.

As for the drag link, the one that goes on the Pitman arm has more clearance built into it so that when it droops, it will not bind. I don't have the Moog part numbers with me, but it's pretty easy to tell.

Once again, this is for Chevy or Dodge 1 ton setup and may be different than what you have. Post some pics of all 4 and maybe we can help you out.
