Re: Steering Box Swap Info...
well, i use my CJ more for distance than for wheeling.
It was built with the intention that it would be for travel, specifically in Central and South America. It looks like hell, completely rusted out, and held together by sheet metal. But the 304, T-150, and Dana 20 are all rebuilt, wiring reharnesseed, and it's (almost) ready to go.
i had power steering on a CJ i drove from NY to FL, and it was very difficult to drive. Granted, it had a three inch lift, 33s, and no sway bars.
Anyway, i picked my setup for simplicity, less gears, less luxuries, so that i have less to worry about in the middle of nowhere. For highway miles i'm looking for less wobble-open steering.
if anyone can give me some certainties on the steering box swap, and whether i'll have to get a manual shaft or pitman arm, i'ld much appreciate it.
And if anyone in Southern Cal or the area would like to trade these parts for the whole power steering setup, drop me a line.
