DOR's Patented Heavy Duty Steering Kit, Drill-Out version. Requires drilling knuckles and pitman arm to a 3/4" bore for installation. If you already have crossover steering and want to switch to T style, this kit will bolt right up to your already-drilled knuckles and pitman arm. Includes Grade 8 hardware, complete tie rod and drag link assembly which are powdercoated satin black, and installation instructions. Does not have provisions for steering stabilizers. You can either add our stabilizer kit (much better than stock) or you can just order the clamp for any other stabilizer (factory or aftermarket). Many customers do not need a stabilizer once our steering is installed and the truck is aligned.
The Dodge Off Road Steering Kit is the result of over ten years of research and extreme testing in harsh off road environments, and daily driving on poorly maintained roads. What we have designed is a reliable, heavy duty steering system that meets all of our criteria, in a way that no other steering system can offer you. This steering linkage is so strong, a race truck we sponsor completed the Mint 400 with it! The Mint 400 is known as the toughest off road race in America, it takes place in the brutal Nevada desert each year. The race truck broke both leaf packs, but our steering held strong. This was after it had been on the race truck for a full race season, and part of the previous season. If DOR steering works for off road race trucks, it will certainly handle anything you want to throw at it!
1) Uncompromised strength. Thick-wall DOM 1026 tubing ensures that your tie rod and drag link will never bend, break, or otherwise let you down. If they do, they are covered under our lifetime warranty.
2) Easy to adjust and fine tune. Tie rod is one piece with RH thread heims on each end, so you set it and forget it. The drag link adjustment goes in 1/16" increments, so you can precisely center your steering wheel.
3) Works on all trucks (1994-2012), regardless of lift height and wheel size/backspacing. If your stock steering fits, this will fit. Also fits 2013 Ram 2500 models.
4) Proper steering geometry. Bumpsteer is designed out of this setup as much as possible thanks to the T-style design. The drag link does not bind up as quickly as stock when the suspension droops out, so there is less wear and tear, thanks to our drag link heim being mounted in a better orientation (unlike crossover kits).
You will not find all four of these qualities with any other steering kit on the market. We can confidently say that, because we have tried all of them. What we are manufacturing is a totally new approach to Dodge steering, where everything was designed from scratch using the best parts money can buy, with some custom machined hardware that nobody else in the world has, and all joints are totally replaceable by the customer if they ever wear out. So far we have seven years of abuse on these same joints in a similar application with no failures or replacements to date, and our research indicates that other people have had the same results on their own trucks.
There are a lot of aftermarket steering options out there. So what makes our steering kit so special? It's the only kit that bolts in without modifications (bolt-in version only, see related products below), it is the only kit that works on all trucks regardless of wheels or lift height, and it's made using the strongest materials money can buy. Unlike crossover steering kits, the DOR setup does not introduce bumpsteer into your steering.
