The Best Mod So Far

I purchased the sector shaft bracket for my 21 JT Mojave. It was an easy installed, bolted right on with no drilling, cutting or trimming. Followed the instructions and torque specs. Made a world of difference, virtually eliminating the dead steer and deflection in the steering. Well worth the investment. I would Highly Recommend this product.

Solid product

I purchased the Yeti XD JL Sector shaft brace for my Rubicon as it has the steering issues that many Jeep JLs seem to have, hoping it would work as a band aid until Jeep resolves the steering gearbox issue. Jeep has already put in a new steel gear box, a new trackbar, and steering damper. Unfortunately, the Yeti did not correct, or even reduce the problem. I plan on leaving it installed though, as it provides additional strength to the steering and control system. Installation went fairly smooth, taking under 2 hours. Putting the track bar bolt in before the 4 steering box bolts is key...follow their instructions! The stock steering nut used a 1-11/16" socket and the SteerSmarts nut used a 1-5/8" socket, which delayed the install until I found both sockets (43 and 42mm will also work, but the SAE sizes fit perfect).

YETI XD™ JL/JT Sector shaft brace-- Non Rubicon Awesome!

This was a very easy install on my 21 Gladiator 80th Ann. It took about two hours to install, I believe it would have been quicker with a better impact gun for the steering nut, that was the hardest part of the installation and torquing the new steering nut. the rest was very simple, I watch a few Youtube videos and read the instructions completely before starting. The steering box bolts need to be started by hand, all four of them, wiggle the box to get the bolts started, and then I used a small impact gun to tighten them up. For the track bar re-install, we had to wiggle the steering wheel to get the track bar bolt in. Once everything was started I tightened and torqued the bolts and nuts, and marked them with a paint pin. We did a test drive and you can definitely tell a difference in the steering. This is an outstanding product and it did as advertised!

YETI XD™ JL/JT NON-RUBICON SECTOR SHAFT BRACE WITH TRACK BAR REINFORCEMENT BRACKET

 by Steer Smarts

Part number: 
Non-Rubicon:
79040001
Rubicon: 79040002

 
The YETI XD™ JL/JT Sector Shaft Brace With Frame Side Track Bar Reinforcement Bracket was engineered to bolt onto the stock track bar mount on the frame. The purpose of this piece is two-fold. First, the sector shaft support is meant to help minimize the aluminum and steel steering gears from flexing/deflecting/moving when cycling your steering system side to side.
The second part of the product is to reinforce the frame side track bar mounting location to help minimize any deflection of this bracket and ensuring that the mount doesn't break under extreme stress.
If you've had the TSB (technical service bulletin) work performed on your pre-2021 Wrangler or Gladiator, you will want to use the 4x short gear bolts. The fastener bag provides bolts for both aluminum and steel gear variations. The Aluminum box requires 2x short gear and 2x long gear bolts where the Steel box requires 4x short gear bolts.
*Note - Mojave JT and Diesel JT Gladiators require slight modification that is outlined in the installation instructions found here
