Re: New Jeeper!!!!!
Welcome to board!
Putting power steering in your jeep can be does very cheap, or very expensively. If you got the money, goto Advanced adapters website and they sell the kit pretty much complete for you..
to do it cheaply, you can copy everything they do for thier coversion, because it is nothing that cant be found. I converted my 63 CJ5 by copying everything a power steering CJ5 has. I took the hole crossmember that the power steering jeep had along with the box and bracket. and I just copied the design. I midified a 74 steering column to work to match the stock look. Orginally I had a later model cJ steering column, but it interfered with my hanging pedals i installed. It takes a bunch of welding, and luckily i had a buddy who welds for a living help out a whole bunch. The only thing I really coldnt find ofr the conversion is the long tie rod, which i bought from advanced adapters for around $50. the only problem i can see with you doing you power steering like mine is your exhaust. If you are running stock exhaust you pipe in the fron will interfere with my steering shaft, since mine is mounted up high. If you look at the advacned adapters setup, their steering column comes out in the orignal place that you steering column mounts so it will go under the exhaust. Well i hoped i helped you a bit.
