Q&A Vlog: Jeepster Ross Cam-and-Lever Versus Saginaw Steering Gear

The original Kaiser-era Jeepster (1966-71) has become a classic Jeep model for trail, restoration or multi-purpose use. The Ross cam-and-lever steering gear (right) is primitive and wear-prone by design. Many convert to a Saginaw manual or power steering gear. The radically modified trail runner (left) at Area BFE, Moab, Utah, has modern power steering, a high output V-8 engine conversion and severe tire and lift modifications.
