STEER SMARTS™ is proud to present the most EXTREME steering linkage for your Jeep JL Wrangler, “The YETI XD™ Series” linkage. We applied our 85 years of steering “lessons learned” to develop the strongest most durable linkage ever built for the Wrangler.
The YETI XD "No Drill" Top Mount Draglink is a complete bolt-on for high steer applications and features our Patent Pending REVERSE TAPER MOUNT design. The YETI XD "No Drill" is the quickest and easiest draglink flip on the market. Installation takes just minutes and there is no need to modify or alter your stock knuckle. This draglink bolts to the factory tapered knuckle hole and the factory pitman arm hole.
Fits the following applications:
Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU '18-Current
Jeep Gladiator JT '20-Current
Part #: 78078001
Finish: E-coat & Black Powdercoat
Easy bolt-on installation
Engineered for proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences
Patent Pending "No Drill" Reverse Taper Mount makes for quick and easy installation without the need for drilling or altering your knuckle
FORGED IN THE USA
30mm 1 1/2 Ton ball joints designed specifically for the JL
Cold headed medium carbon alloy steel ball studs provide incredible impact toughness for extreme duty usage
Induction heat treated ball studs provide ultimate fatigue strength and superior off-road durability
Steel on steel bearings provide exceptional ball joint wear resistance and robustness
High-quality seals ensure long ball joint life. Our superior seals have been rigorously tested to minimize leakage between grease service intervals which greatly improves our ball joint reliability over our competition
Powder coat over E-coat for a long lasting appearance under harsh conditions
External threads are e-coated for durability and long-term serviceability
Forged from medium carbon high harden-ability steel and heat treated for greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength
Forged from medium carbon high hardenability steel and heat treated for even greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength
Large 1 ¼ inch rolled threads at tie rod adjuster and draglink ends provide significantly increased strength over the original equipment threads
Unique “Reverse Pin” technology prevents our linkage from flopping or rocking. This technology is built into the socket unlike the weak external supports on some competitor linkages
Draglink adjuster is manufactured from large diameter ¼ inch thick wall high strength 4130 Chromoly steel tubing for maximum buckling strength
Adjuster clamps assure proper clamp force using conventional tools without the possible risk of loosening like large jam nuts
Designed with right-hand and left-hand threads for quick and easy adjustment once installed on the vehicle
Internal threads and tube are also e-coated for long-term serviceability
Note: A minimum of 17”wheels is recommended. 16" wheels with a maximum 4.5 backspacing might fit but not guaranteed.
**Draglink fits all left-hand drive JL Wrangler models 2018 to Current including Rubicon and Unlimited**
The no-drill top mount will not work with OEM 17" wheels or wheels with OEM style offset/backspacing. Requires higher offset or spacers to clearance properly.
A MINIMUM LIFT HEIGHT OF 4.5" ( AND CORRECT BUMP STOP) IS REQUIRED FOR A TOP-MOUNT DRAGLINK. PART #79022001 (TRACK BAR RELOCATION BRACKET) IS NECESSARY WHEN FLIPPING YOUR DRAGLINK - IT MAINTAINS PROPER TRACK BAR AND DRAGLINK GEOMETRY. FOR THOSE RUNNING METAL CLOAK LIFTS, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND A TOP MOUNT DRAGLINK FOR THEIR LIFT KITS DUE TO INTERFERENCE ISSUES.
