Steering box selection

I am in the process of converting my old worn out steering box to a saqinaw unit and would appreciate any help you can give me.

I would like to avoid power steering if possible, there really isn't much room left, & CJs with power steering are a little squirrelly. However Im open to the option.

I have heard they used an 8-1 or something manual steering box on some cars, and that these can give you the feel of power steering when off road.

Then there is apparently a progressive type power steering unit. If we go with power, do they make an electric pump, or a really small one with remote tank?

any suggestions on which car to look for at pnp? Which parts do I need to get when there?
