This a very simple install .. All u need us a wrench,hammer,5/8" drillbit, measuring tape, a few lonestar lights and about 2.5 hours.
Remove old steering .. Drill out tie rod mounts to 5/8".. Measure new tie rod to 52" center hole to center hole on the tierod and install new hardware.. Measurement may vary but 52" is where my tires were straight.. turn key forward and with the tires straight twist the drag link until steering wheel is straight.. Then install clamp...
I had to fab up a new bracket to mount my steering stabilizer back on.. I just drilled some holes in a piece of flatbar and mounted it with U-bolts to my drag link..
I'm going to get a high steer knuckle for the passenger side to parallel the tierod and drag link .. But it's fine for now...
I ordered the steering kit for about 400$ after shipping from www.topguncustomz.com

You'll have to tell me how you like it on the road, especially regarding bump steer, control, and so on. I have the Currie stock replacement which is great, and I've got inserts coming in to flip the tie rod to the top of the knuckle. That requires moving the axle swaybar link mounts up and out of the way, so I have new brackets coming for that. Existing ones get cut off, new ones burned on in their place.

For reference, I got that stuff coming from http://blackmagicbrakes.com/Jeep_Co-Op.php

So far so good for correcting the bump steer.. I like it on the road but definately fab up a steering stabilizer before taking it on the road! Especially if u run 35's! I'll post pics of the bracket I made
