Rocky Road Outfitters OTT Steering Kit

Is anyone out there running the Rocky Road Outfitters OTT Steering kit on their Jeep? If so, how do you like it?

I am looking at the possibility of getting one to finish off my SOA conversion. I know that RRO does not have the best track record, but I have ordered several of their products in the past (Z-link steering kit, YJ front spring conversion kit, heavy duty rear greasable shackle mount) and have had zero problems. In my opinion, their products are very well built.

Also, if anyone can offer up a high steer solution other than the RRO kit, please let me know. I just want to be sure that whatever I put on will be high quality and give me zero problems.

I take it that there isn't very many people who are running this kit. Not sure if I'm going to get it and let everyone know how it works or if I'll take a different direction with my steering setup. Still hoping for some replies

I bought the OTT over a year ago and just got around to installing it a month ago. It makes a big difference from the original steering setup, no bump steer and is pretty heavy duty. The instructions are fairly straight forward but some parts could've been written clearer. I have only put about 15 miles on it but it's a world of difference. It's not my DD so I'm currently in the process of sourcing parts for a stroked 4.0 and an AX-15 swap. Any questions and I'll answer them the best I can.

I bought it and tossed it after the first wheeling trip. The bolt on arms killed the leverage and overworked my brand new power steering pump till it would no longer steer at all. Save your money and buy a set of flat top knuckles and find the brake caliper brackets needed and some high steer arms for the knuckles and you will be much happier or if your dead set on the ott kit I may sell you the one I have but I really hate to pawn their crap off on a fellow jeeper.

b1980, can you post some pictures of how the supplied brackets mount to the knuckles?

twinstick, were you running the stock steering box and stock replacement pump when this happened? Also, I've sent you a PM to discuss the possibility of purchasing your kit.

Yes stock pump and box and both where about 2 weeks old at the time.

I'm not sure that I would have this issue, I have an AGR Superbox and Pump.
