Best Uses

  • Better steering control

Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy-Duty Steering Box Brace:

So far, so good. The hardest part of the installation was cleaning up the threaded bolt holes on the passenger frame - thirty-five+ years of exposure to the elements. Other than that, just bolt it on. The CJ-5 has a high center of gravity and a narrow wheelbase which can obviously be dangerous. This product did away with a lot of the wiggle, making it more easy to control at highway speeds. Also, the price was about half of what I found from other suppliers. I hope my current satisfaction holds out. Thank you 4WD.
