Welcome Addition to the Package

If you did nothing else other than install this system, you'd still notice the improvement in steering feel & stability. Definitely a well built product (but then who would expect anything less?).

Tighter steering

Placed my order during a holiday. So it took a few days to get it. They answered all my questions in a timely manner by text. Once it shipped, it was at my house in two days. Installed the sector shaft brace on my 23 jlu . Initially the the steering seems tighter. The wandering left or right when hitting potholes or uneven spots in the road. Seems to be close to totally gone. I haven't been on the interstate yet or driven it a bunch . Long story short, i will put this product on every jeep I own . For the steering improvement and let's not forget. How beefy the bracket is compared to the factory installed bracket. That's a win by its self.

I’ve been asked to write a review after the order having been fulfilled 7 days ago….unfortunately I have not received the part yet.

You ordered the product on 11/28, when it showed it was out of stock and would likely be back in stock on 12/21. The product was picked up by Fed Ex on 11/30 (two days after the order and 3 weeks earlier than projected) and you received the product the same day that you left this 1 star review. You used the free ground shipping that we offered for Cyber Monday. Ground takes at least 4 business days to get from where we're at in Michigan to your California location. It arrived on 12/6, which is 4 business days exactly. Again, the request for a review is automated, and the review is supposed to be based on the product. Knowing that you ordered an out of stock item and it wasn't slated to be back in stock until 12/21, why would you go and leave a review like this? It makes now sense...

I had a dangerous Jeep

I purchased a used 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL that was out of warranty so I was going to have to eat the cost for a new steel steering box. The steering was so bad that I rarely drove it. I purchased the Steer Smarts Sector Shaft Brace after reading reviews and watching several You Tube videos. I had my fingers crossed that it would solve my steering issues. I took my time installing it(about 3 hours total) and then took a test drive. It worked beyond my expectations. My steering issues are 95 percent solved and it's a pleasure to drive. It's been in over a month now and still works great. Thank You Steer Smarts.

Made a huge difference

2020 gladiator rubicon w/ 3” lift and 35” tires. Even after the TSB for new steering box it “lurched” at highway speeds going over potholes, bridge abutments and such. Wife was scared to drive it even for short trips. This smoothed it right out and it feels much more stable like my 2017 F350. Night and day difference. Amazing how different it is being just a brace. Added rear airbags and made a huge difference in the rear. Wife is very happy now.

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

 by Steer Smarts

Part number: 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
***Fitment Issues may be present with certain aftermarket track bars -- fitment based on angle/how the hoop is bent as they can cause interference. We have seen fitment issues with the following track bars: ROUGH COUNTRY, CORE4X4...
