Why would you use anythings else?

My customers expect the very best products for their Jeeps. The entire Steersmarts line not only delivers on that expectation, but exceeds it! In the years prior to Steersmarts coming to market, I've used several other types of steering "upgrades", but not one of them came close to Steersmarts bulletproof designs. So, if you're looking for the best possible steering upgrades for your rig, do what I do, look no further than Steersmarts!

Death Wobble Fix

I purchased this in a package deal with a Falcon Nexus EF 2.2 adjustable steering stabilizer. The SteerSmarts tie rod is beefy and the forged tie rod ends are massive. These two parts made my death wobble problems disappear and my JLUR with 38” tires now drives better than stock.

Serious upgrade

Steersmarts makes products they way they should be made. Heavy,durable made in America construction. Makes the Gladiator drive so much better than factory.

Amazing product's

Had tie rod assembly drag link and track bar installed on my Jeep Gladiator. Strong rugged stuff! Drives like a dream! When I'm driving across the frozen chiseled fields of Nebraska during hunting season I will have no worries about my front end parts breaking. That's for sure.

YETI XD™ JL/JT (Standard) 1½-ton Tie Rod

 By Steer Smarts
Tie Rod Part # 
Standard: 78076001

 

STEER SMARTS™ is proud to present our most EXTREME steering linkage “The YETI XD™ Series” linkage for your Jeep JL Wrangler. We applied our 85 years of steering “lessons learned” to develop the strongest most durable linkage ever built for the Wrangler. 

The YETI XD Tie Rod is a direct bolt-on for the JL/JT Wrangler The YETI XD Installs just minutes and there is no need to modify or alter the Jeep.

 

Features

YETI XD TIE ROD ASSEMBLY:
  • Easy bolt-on installation.
  • Engineered for proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences.
  • MADE IN THE USA
BALL JOINTS:
  • 30mm 1 1/2 Ton ball joints designed specifically for the JL.
  • Cold-headed medium carbon alloy steel ball studs provide incredible impact toughness for extreme duty usage.
  • Induction heat-treated ball studs provide ultimate fatigue strength and superior off-road durability.
  • Steel on steel bearings provides exceptional ball joint wear resistance and robustness.
  • High-quality seals ensure long ball joint life. Our superior seals have been rigorously tested to minimize leakage between grease service intervals which greatly improves our ball joint reliability over our competition.
  • Fully greaseable.
TIE ROD ENDS:
  • Powder coat over E-coat for a long-lasting appearance under harsh conditions.
  • External threads are e-coated for durability and long-term serviceability.
  • Forged from medium carbon high hardenability steel and heat-treated for greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Forged from medium carbon high hardenability steel and heat-treated for even greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Large 1 ¼ inch rolled threads at tie rod adjuster and draglink ends provide significantly increased strength over the original equipment threads.
  • Unique “Reverse Pin” technology prevents our linkage from flopping or rocking. This technology is built into the socket unlike the weak external supports on some competitor linkages.

ADJUSTER TUBE: 

  • Tie Rod adjuster is manufactured from large diameter ¼ inch thick wall high strength 4130 Chromoly steel tubing for maximum buckling strength.
  • Adjuster clamps assure proper clamp force using conventional tools without the possible risk of loosening like large jam nuts.
  • Designed with right-hand and left-hand threads for quick and easy adjustment once installed on the vehicle.
  • Internal threads and tubes are also e-coated for long-term serviceability.

TORQUE SPECS:

  • Clamps need to be torqued to 80-85 ft-lbs, and should be oriented so that they do not interfere with anything else (generally facing forward or down). Clamp torque needs to be checked at 500 miles, and then again at 2000 miles. After that, every oil change the torque specs should be checked as well as after any hard wheeling/off-roading. 

* Tie Rod fits left-hand drive  JL/JT Wrangler models 2018+ and requires a 1 5/8" diameter damper bracket that is not included. Check out the YETI XD Damper Bracket.

Note: A minimum of 17” wheels is recommended.
