- *High lift kit note…. the drag link is notably longer than our standard kit…. you will need to be at over 6.5″ of EFFECTIVE steering lift height. AKA if you are at 8″ lift with a 3″ drop pitman arm, your steering is effectively at 5″ of lift and should go with the standard drag link plus magnum heim. If you are at 10″ with a 3″ drop pitman, you are net 7″ lift and the high lift is the correct choice.
Industry First high lift drag link option!! Most kits on the market CANNOT safely adjust out far enough for more lift, our kit can!
High Lift Drag Link compared to the standard one…. more adjustment length, more droop travel for taller rigs… We’re the only company to offer this!
High Lift Drag Link is available as a standalone item here!
- ZJ models (namely 1998) have a greater chance of different drag link length setup and often require a longer drag link adjustment. We suggest going the magnum Heim route to ensure long enough adjustment range. We are still working on comparing parts to figure out why the 98 models seem to be having this adjustment difference.

I received my package within like a week of ordering, install was very simple and straightforward. Didn’t really read through the provided instructions until towards the end, but was nice to have confirmation I put it in right and what to torque it all to! Since then I’ve beat on it pretty hard and it’s all still just fine.
Super beefy stuff, got it quick

The steering arrived well protected, with instructions, stickers, and a few treats. Outstanding product and service. I doubt this setup will ever fail. Well done!

Order came in quickly. Has been installed with the excellent instructions given for product. Not a single issue with the set up. Order came with a couple of stickers and packages of candy which I thought was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend this product and company to anyone that beats and uses their rig off road.

I should of left a review a long time ago! I was getting ready to move to Arizona and they I had selected powder coating and didn’t realize it took longer to ship so I contacted them and let them know I needed it sooner so they shipped me a bare metal one and it got here in about a week(just in time before I drive my xj to Arizona) this kit is amazing and I had recently bought a new Jeep with the Currie off-road steering and what a different it makes from have Heim joints to have TRE I am planning on purchasing one here soon! Will be the sending kit I’ve bought! Definitely recommend this kit!!

I bought this kit for another jeep because i love this kit! i have looked into trying other kits but i seemed to go back to this one because i know how good this kit is. More beefy than the currie kit that i had on the jeep.

Thanks again!!

Just got the crossover steering for my 96 grand Cherokee with a 7″ Clayton long arm, extremely satisfied with the quality and extremely simple to install. I can’t believe the difference in steering and response, it drives so much better then it ever has! Thank you for such a great quality product! Wish I picked this up sooner!
