Getting Jinxy To Steer Straighter
I'll let you in on a little secret: right now, this truck is running and driving. Over the last six build installments, I've tried to stay parallel with the theme of each magazine issue, showing the work Off Road Evolution has done to this '94 Dodge Ram that corresponds to what we're concentrating on in OFF-ROAD each month. Since this month is a steering special, I'm showing off all the steering work that Off Road Evolution did on Jinxy. We went with overkill size parts, but stayed with a tried-and-true simple crossover steering setup for absolute reliability while this truck is on off-road trips. Yes, I definitely pondered adding a quick ratio steering box, a hydraulic assist ram, and a double crossover and bellcrank setup. But in the end Off Road Evolution added some massive FK rod ends to a standard draglink and tie rod crossover steering setup that we knew would work out great for this truck.
