MILWAUKEE – The new BOLT® J-MountTM bracket mounting system allows Jeep TJ and JK off-road enthusiasts to securely attach their hi-lift jack to the side of their vehicle for easy, vertical access.

To protect this critical Jeep accessory, the J-Mount features the one-key convenience of BOLT lock technology, which permanently programs the lock to the Jeep owner’s vehicle ignition key, eliminating the need for extra keys. Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down and the first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key. An auto-return spring locks automatically when the key is removed.

Steer Smarts to release YETI Series Steering Linkage at the 2015 SEMA Show

Steer Smarts presents our heavy duty steering linkage “The YETI Series” for Jeep JK Wranglers. We applied our 80 plus years of steering “lessons learned” to develop the strongest, most durable linkage ever built. The YETI Series linkage was engineered from the ground up with extreme detail to every component.
Our High Steer Top Mount Draglink has a Patent Pending ‘Reverse Taper Mount” that bolts right to the factory knuckle without the need of modifying the knuckle. This assures strength from the wheels to steering gear and makes installation a lot easier.
We also applied our “Reverse Pin” ball joint technology on our rod ends to prevent the linkage from flopping or rocking on those nasty washboard type roads. Our 30mm ball joints, with improved induction hardening, are the largest and strongest ever assembled in a Wrangler steering linkage.
Linkages and all components are MADE IN THE USA.
