\'99TJ steering box on CJ?

Anyone done this? I was thinking of tossing my manual steergear box, and a buddy has a spare box for his '00 TJ (built in '99, apparently the ones built in '00 are slightly different). Anyway, before I go running around locting old waggys, I was thinking about what mods I'd need. Mounting is a little different, but do-able, Piman arm is different, couldn't tell aobut the shaft to input shaft coupler. Any ideas if this will work? or what's a better way? Just get the parts out of a waggy? I'm running a '78 CJ5, 304, D30, manual steering.

Thanks
Brent

BTW, my jeep is sitting at a buddy shop right now, cause I can't see to get the gear inthe man. steering box timed/adjusted right. tear down and assembly were easy, but some thing JUST AIN'T RIGHT!

Re: \'99TJ steering box on CJ?

your biggest concern with this.. will be the coupling on your steering shaft.. more than likely it is different.. you can bolt the tj box onto your jeep.. shouldnt be a big deal.. but you'll need something for your steering shaft.. i used a waggy box.. and i had to cut my shaft end off.. and then weld on the waggy steering shaft end.. until i got a flaming river shaft.. which is waaay better.. and of course you'll need a pump also.. with brackets..
i think the waggy would be easier.. get it, the pump with brackets and the shaft from a boneyard.. you'll have everything you need..

one more thing on that waggy box.. i needed to cut the ends of the lines that go into the top of the box.. and re-flare them.. to make them shorter.. or tighter against the box... but you might not have too..

Brent,
There's a manual steering box for sale on the Middle TN board for $30. I can send you the link if you can't find it.

Also, when I went to S&J to get the harness for my TR upgrade, there was Waggy that looked to be complete (except ignition[img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]). It's on the right side going in the gate. Still less than $5 a pound out there[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].

Re: \'99TJ steering box on CJ?

I found a complete waggy PS set-up at 67 motors up on Reynolda Rd. Everything and them pulling it for me for $175 ($25 for them to pull it, and withtoday's weather, I'll let them do it [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] ) Only thing i'm thinking now is gear box input shaft size, will it fit my coupler. It has a POS rag joint on it. Then does the waggy box bolt right in? do i reuse my braces or do need to fab somthing?

Thanks
Brent

Re: \'99TJ steering box on CJ?

if you need the box and pump... i'm pretty sure i have them here.. do you need a tj pump or a cj?? I have both.. and a cj resivoir
i do NOT have a tj resivoir though.. and I was unsuccessfull trying to get one from the stealership.

Re: \'99TJ steering box on CJ?

what makes a wagoneer pump and Tj, and CJ pump differnt? are they 3 different pumps?

I know the CJ and wag pumps are VERY similar if not identical ( maybe diffent ratio).

whats the gig with the TJ pump?
