Dixon Bros Steering clevis kit

Well it came in today , and i opened up the package and OH mY LORD!! Check out how beefy they are! This kit replaces the inner tierod on all 98+ Ranger/B-series trucks with rack and pinion steering. Took about 2 hours to install both sides.

Yep well worth it. I believe they use 4130 on their shafts. Quite the upgrade.

Those will get the job done.

Now if you don't mind me asking what ARB snorkel kit did you modify to fit your truck. Any chance of getting more pics of it? From what I've seen it looks cosmetically good. I would be interested in as much info as you are willing to share. Pleaseeeeee!!!!

Luke

wow that price looks like it's only for Heavy Duty offroading, but is this an investment that would save even a lighter offroader some hassel down the road, or would it just be a waste for a 75% + street queen?

I get it aligned on monday.It will prolly be all wacky!

I dont think it would be necessary for anything except hard offroading. The OEM stock tierods are pretty cheap, i just got tired of constantly replacing them.
