YJ steering gear upgrade

It would appear that my stock YJ box is not up to the tast of turning my swampers. I squeel all damn day while offroad and it has a new belt and it tight. So I want to swap in a larger box. I wasn't exactly sure of what year waggy box will bolt up. The strange thing is that my lines have flare fittings (360 pump going to yj stock box) I'm not going to one of those expensive boxes, I want something I can pull from the junk yard. Any help would be appreciated. Also if there are other saginaw boxes from other applications that will work, i'll take that info too.

Forget the SJ box- get a 4x4 S10 box, '96 or newer. That's what the FSJ people are switching to since their stock boxes wear out so fast. It will look identical to the SJ but with 3 bolt holes like your YJ box.

Re: YJ steering gear upgrade

Thanks for the info, but is that the variable speed or whatever they call it like the waggy box? Is this a big improvement over the stock YJ box, or is it just a replacement? I'm tired of struggling with the steering. I will eventually go with ram assist, but not this year.
