The steering system is like no other we’ve seen on a trail rig. In order to achieve longer lengths and shallower angles for the draglink and Panhard bar alike, the crew at Desolate Motorsports built a hinge-style idler arm that’s directly inspired by I-beam desert racing trucks. The draglink has two segments. First, it runs from the steering box over to the idler arm. Next, it travels from the idler arm (often called a “swinger” in desert racing circles) down to the driver-side steering knuckle. The tie rod was custom-fabbed to clear the draglink system. An AGR Rock Ram assists the steering box, producing an easier effort at the steering wheel and less stress on the frame.
