geiman There are more than a few threads on this if you search around. Look into what inverted-t steering is and why it's bad on a TJ. You'll have more than enough info to think about.

rubiconvict05 Is there a reason for this opinion? Why is it crap? Not that i don't believe you I just want to know what the thought behind it is.

It's absolutely crap. Take it off the list.

KawiTJ going to look into the iron rock set up, I like the idea that if my tirod bends or something its not direct stress on other parts, and its a little more clearance.

I would rather have the Iron Rock set up than the Rusty's, if I would've known about it before I bought my Rugged Ridge steering that's what I would have purchased instead.

A couple more steering options would be the Currie Currectlync inverted "Y" style steering, and the Rock Krawler cross over style steering. The Rock Crawler steering is similar to the Iron Rock set up but the drag link goes behind the tie rod instead of in front of it. The Currie steering is basically the stock style steering but redesigned for a lifted Jeep, and twice as strong and thick as the factory parts. The Crown heavy duty steering is also the same design as stock, but in between the stock and the currie set up as far as strength and price are concerned. The Savvy ultimate steering system uses the Currie drag link, with a Savvy designed tie rod that is basically unbreakable/bendable.
thanks for the info

does anyone have this set up? any pros or cons? I was told that the over the knuckle is a better set up than the stock y set up, wondering if anyone else has done the same?
The Rusty's Offroad steering set up is really similar to the Rugged Ridge steering set up, both are an inverted "T" style of steering.

You can do a true, quality crossover steering setup but you'll have to ditch the stock knuckles and you'll spend a minimum of 3x what the above options cost.
