Part Number: FUS-UD60FTJLJT-TR Brand: Fusion Fits: All models of 2020 to present Jeep Gladiator JT and 2018 to Present Jeep Wrangler JL and JLU with Ultimate Dana 60 axles
FOR STEERING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS PLEASE CLICK HERE.
NOTE: The UD60 JL axles use a JK taper for the tie rod and the knuckle end of the drag link. IMPORTANT: You MUST use a JL tapered end for the pitman arm end. The JL pitman arm uses a much larger taper than a JK and using a JK taper will result in binding and potentially catastrophic failure of the drag link end. Our F-Ton steering kit comes with the correct tapers for JL/JT UD60 axles.
Three years of engineering, development and testing, with one goal: to be the best steering in the industry. Not only did we make it better and stronger in every aspect as compared to our 2.5 Ton steering, but we also LOWERED THE PRICE.
What does the “F” in F-Ton stand for? First and foremost, it stands for Fusion. As in, our own, not rebranded parts from another company. A few other things it stands for:
Fawk Ton: 17% stronger forgings than our previous 2.5 Ton Steering, and 25% larger ball joint ends as compared to OEM steering.
Fawk around and find out: The more you fawk around, the more you will find out about how strong this steering is. Manage to push it too far and find out about the lifetime warranty covering bent or broken forgings or aluminum.
Freedom: To drop F-Bombs on any rock that gets in your way.
Forged Rod Ends: Made from a unique Medium Carbon Steel followed by a proprietary heat treat process to maximize strength while minimizing the probability of breaking.
Fully E-Coated: Forgings are fully E-coated, including the threads, reducing any chance of galvanic corrosion when used with aluminum.
3" Forward Offset: Drag Link end 3" offset ensures ample clearance for track bar brackets.
OEM Wheel Fitment: Fits OEM 17" wheels. No lift or different backspace wheel required.
Massive 1-1/4" Shank Ends: Go big so you can drive home.
Solid 1.75" OD 7075-T651:US aluminum sourced ONLY from US mills that meet our specific quality and testing requirements.
Why not 2"? All steering components work in harmony. 2" aluminum does not flex enough, resulting in bent and broken forgings.
Why not 2" and stronger forgings then? We tried and we broke knuckles in testing. We want the aluminum to absorb energy. In a worst case scenario, we want a forging to bend so you can still drive home.
Machined with MIL SPEC wrench flats.
Left hand and right hand thread for easy, on-vehicle adjustment.
Left hand thread end has score mark for easy identification.
Fusion TruTaper: Ball studs for every application that match the OE taper vs. using a lower cost and weaker approach of a straight stud and an adapter. TruTaper studs are far stronger than straight studs with inserts.
Massive Ball Stud: 25% larger than OEM steering for maximum durability and designed to be the longest lasting in the industry.
Low Profile: More space between the tie rod and drag link for improved clearance on applications with a lot of up-travel.
Greaseable: For extended service life.
Anti-flop Inside: Both Tie Rod and Drag Link ends have built-in misalignment limitation in one direction to maximize steering stiffness and steering feel.
Sealed Ends: All rod ends are sealed with a heavy duty boot to keep the bad stuff out.
Optional Next Generation Rear 40 Spline Assembly.18 months of design, engineering and testing, resulted in the industries strongest 40 spline rear assembly. The design completed rigorous FEA testing and analysis. - Forged chromolyspindles, hubs, and axle shafts - Forged spindles have 4x more yield strengththan 35 spline spindles - Hubs with over 80,000 psi yield strength to match the spindles - Tone rings integrated into the hub - Forged 4340 chromoly 40 spline axle shafts that are 55% strongerthan 4340 35 spline axle shafts
