Rusty's steering conversion

Curious if anyone has the steering conversion kit from Rusty's. It runs just shy of $500 but includes track bar, drag link (flipped) and tie rod. In pics it looks like it's all heim joints with necessary washers. Also requires a couple weld on brackets. It looks like a decent set up but hoping someone here has it and can give real world feedback. Durability, maintenance, installation, etc. Any info is much appreciated. I know Rusty's got a pretty good rep but haven't seen/heard much about these components.

My personal opinion only, but anything that guy makes is pretty much trash.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.

Will it work with JK knuckles? I'm not sure of the differences between the JK and earlier knuckles, but I do know Reids don't interchange between them..so interchangability may be a concern[?]

I'm always open to opinions when first dealing with a company so thanks. Seems there is a small group that agree with you while others that are 180 degrees opposite. Feedback from both sides is helpful.

Good call. Just opened the instructions and it explains differences for earlier models but no mention of the JK. Sooooo.....moving on. Thanks!!

Good call... That didn't look very JK specific.
