Thumbs up RockKrawler X Factor Steering

Im looking to upgrade my steering soon and was wondering if any of you have experience with the rockkrawler steering setup or if you'd recommend another steering setup.

Thanks for any help,

Joe and I talked extensively about the RK steering when I did my lift. He said it is stout as hell and damn near bullet proof. He said the only drawback to the RK steering is the maintenance required with the kit. He basically said I would need to get under it often and retighten everything on a fairly regular basis. Since simplicity and ease of use were a main concern of mine he recommended the Currie steering. That being said, I’m really pleased with the Currie. In my opinion the Currie is an improvement over the ORO U-Turn I was running before.

I’m sure Joe will be on here soon enough and can elaborate more on the RK steering.

The main thing you need to do when installing the X-Factor steering is to pay attention to the directions and follow them. The failures we've seen have come from people not doing the installation of this off road only product.

I run the gen 1 RK steering and I love it.
