Based out of Detroit, home to a company called Fusion 4x4 comes to us the American made 2.5 ton steering setup. If you have done your research then I'm sure that by now you have found that running stock steering components on your new Ultimate Dana 60 axles is a slim to "none" chance. Due to the massive differential on the new axles the offset on your stock steering is too small to allow the tie rod enough clearance to clear the differential. Fusion 4x4 fixes these issues with..........Snippet from there website.
The Fusion Rock Series Tie Rod was designed to be the strongest Jeep JK tie rod on the market. We use super-sized components to put an end to bent tie rods. Massive 1-1/4" shank dog leg ends are paired with 1.75" diameter solid 7075 T6511 aluminum. 7075 is popular in off-road racing due to its "memory." If you hit the tie rod hard enough to make it flex, the bar will return to straight. The aluminum is machined on a CNC lathe for exacting tolerences.
- Fits all JKs, including stock wheels, no drilling or reaming
- Cartridge ends are replaceable
- Cartridge ends can be flipped for those running a flipped tie rod
- Requires a 1.75" steering stabilizer clamp
- Strap wrench is recommended for ease of tightening jam nuts
Be sure to also check out their tie rod clamps made specifically for the 2.5 ton steering if you're planning on running hydro-steering or a steering stabilizer pictured below.
Fusion 4x4 manufactures many other products in house and carries products from other manufacturers that meet their high expectations for the off-road community. Thanks for reading!
