PSC Motorsports 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JL [Video]
As the leader in aftermarket steering systems, PSC Motorsports knows a thing or two about getting Jeeps to drive better on-road and off. When the JL was launched, one of the biggest changes to the all-new Wrangler was to the steering system. Gone was the traditional engine-driven power steering pump and cast-iron steering gearbox. In their place was a remotely mounted electric steering pump along with an aluminum steering gear housing.
Understanding that these systems could fall short when you mix in larger tires and a front differential locker, PSC wasted no time creating an all-new steering kit for the JL. To prove out the company’s hydraulic-assist version of the kit, company owners Tom and Kim Allen piloted their fresh 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sport build on the first annual Nitto JL Experience. Of course, this was no regular Wrangler, as PSC teamed up with the crew at Tribe 16 in Fort Worth, Texas, to create one incredible Jeep.
Fit with a custom multilink suspension, Dynatrac 1-ton axles and riding on 40-inch-tall Nitto Trail Grapplers, PSC’s JL had no trouble navigating the 1,000-plus-mile adventure. While we’ll have more on the company’s all-new JL steering system coming soon, for now, check out our video breakdown of a JL that’s quickly setting the bar for others.
