Custom Jeep Parts: PROJECT JK - Phase II

With the help of our sponsors, our 2007 Jeep JK is a capable off-road vehicle. The trail testing of our Dual Load Carrying Ball Joint System continues!
Phase I

View content

Rare Parts Inc. is excited to announce the development of our new revolutionary Dual Load Carrying Ball Joint System for 2007+ Jeep JK 4x4s. For proper testing, we got ourselves a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which became Project: JK. The primary purpose of our project is to trail test our new ball joint system, and our steering system.

Rare Parts already manufactures a patent-pending, heavy duty Jeep steering system, known as Fab Series® Steering System.

The Fab Series® steering system is a replaceable cartridge system - the studs at all 4 points are replaceable cartridges, which makes it much easier to carry replacement parts with you on the trail. The cartridges can be reversed. With that enabled, converting to high-steer has never been easier.
