Steering Rods

We used an All-Pro hydro-ported Toyota IFS steering box mounted to the reinforced front frame rail and supplemented it with a 1.5-inch-diameter PSC assist cylinder driven by a PSC high-performance pump. The combination results in a slightly light road feel on the highway, but the setup shines on the trail when you want to make tight turns at slow speeds. Due to clearance issues we couldn’t mount the steering rods on top of the upper knuckle arms, so we mounted them at mid-height. Since this is not a hardcore rock-crawler, steering-rod clearance on trails has not been a problem.
