    Did you try calling 4 Wheelers? They are a Rugged Ridge Dealer.

    Re: tre for Rugged Ridge steering

    I just replaced one of mine and ended up finding one local at Offroad unlimited in scottsdale.........40.00 bucks IIRC.....not the friendliest guy's...but when you need parts to wheel.......it was better than nothing.

    Have you done the spacer on the pas. side? Both TJ Steve and i did and the difference is amazing!!!! no more TR movement or dead spot!

    The white spacer fills the gay between the knuckle and the body of the TRE. Without it, the TRE will rotate up and down as you steer and at the center of that movement, it creats a "Deadspot" in the steering. The difference the spacer makes is amazing. i was happy with the steering before the spacer and love it after. The entire kit was only about $180 IIRC and it's holding up quite well.

    Prop's to TJSteve for finding the material!!!

    Here's a pic...

    Re: tre for Rugged Ridge steering

    i have read about those before, guess I should have ordered one, where can you get the material to make one? I wonder if that is why the boots keep blowing out on the drivers side? mine is maybe a year old.

    Ric,

    TJSTEVE found it Ace Hardware, did a little machine work on it and we tried it out. It's some type of poly plastic.....had originally thought of Delrin but once Steve found these i haven't seen the need to change it.

    I'll give steve a call and have him post up the details. If you're considering the RR kit you really need to do the spacers!!

    Re: tre for Rugged Ridge steering

    I have teh RR now, its taken a beating too, had to bend it back a few times, falling off of rocks onto other rocks is not condusive to keeping my tierods and draglinks very straight for very long. Perhaps my driving style should change, heheh, nope, so steering is usually an issue for me. Oh well.
    appreciate the info on the spacers, gotta love Ace hardware they always have what I want.
