1977 CJ5 tilt steering conversion

Hey guys,

I just got my hands on a tilt steering column for my 1977 CJ5. It is out of my friends 1978 CJ5. My original steering column is not tilt and I figured that tilt would be nice to have.

The question is, is this a direct bolt in and plug in replacement? Or are there any little problems that I will run into while doing this?

Thanks,

Al

Should be a straight up swap...bolt for bolt, plug for plug swap. However, there might be a difference in the tooth count at the end of the column if your going manual to power or vice versa.

OK, thanks,

I was just curious if there were any differences because they have different part numbers for the two different years.
