Straight steering, no dead spot. 2018 JLU Sport on 3.5” (4+”) JKS lift, on bumpy country road at 55-60 MPH. The camera is jumping around because I’m holding it in my right hand and the road is pretty rough.

Actually, it looked pretty steady and composed for a bumpy country road. Are you still on the stock wheels and tires? If so, are you planning on larger rubber?

Stock wheels, 33” Open Country AT2s. Eventually I would like to get 35s I think.

I wanted others to see that it’s possible to have a Jeep with solid steering.

My steering has been great since day one also, i still threw a full synergy steering set up and an Fox ATS dampner at it. Stock components were starting to flop around like dead fish with all the washboarded desert roads we run. Now its about perfect.

not bad for the steering with 33s and rough roads.

I've only had my Jeep since 2 April and 2500 miles (all stock with LSD rear and OEM AT tires). It has been rock solid since day one with no wobble or drift - very tight for a solid front axle/body on frame vehicle. Having owned more sports cars and trucks than I should admit to, I've been very happy with the handling of this vehicle.

I haven't had any steering issues with my 2018, either. I added the Synergy brace for the sector shaft, but only because I'm running 37" meats and it does help make up for some of the output loss that's completely natural with much larger tires.
