\'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.
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!
