Quick, take your hands off the steering wheel and try to drive even 10 feet down your favorite trail using just the throttle (clutch) and brakes. No, you cant use your knees to turn the steering wheel either! Bet you cant do it. Shoot, youd be lucky to make it down your driveway if you couldnt use the steering wheel to aim your rig.
Now imagine you werent just engaging in an exercise. Think how it would be if something in your steering linkage broke and you lost all directional control of your rig. If it happened on the trail it would be downright scary. If it happened on the ride home at 65 mph well, we wont even think those kind of thoughts.
Here at 4-Wheel & Off-Road were always looking for new products that will add function, safety, and off-road worthiness to your 4x4. (Please, no thanks necessaryjust doing our jobs.) So when we were hanging out at Currie Enterprises in Anaheim, Californiadrooling over some incredible axle assemblieswe noticed some beefy steering linkages under Curries competition vehicles, and we thought it would the perfect thing for the Jeep junkies out there. Currie assured us they had broken just about everything that could be broken on a Jeep, and that this new steering kit would make a great addition to any XJ, ZJ, or TJ out on the trail. We would have to agree, so we shot a few photos and asked a few questions as they installed the new steering setup on their in-house go-fast truck.
