Steering column

Now that I have a automatic tranny (904)in my 86 CJ7 I am considering buying a steering column with the shifter onit. The floor shifter I have is not working for me.

Will any of the CJ7 columns work with this tranny? I see many of them for sale on ebay. Where can I find the rest of the linkage? Anyone use one of the flaming river colums?

Re: Steering column

Humm... what type of floor shifter do you have?

You can use any Jeep with any automatic in it for the bellcrank and other parts as a donor. Those parts were pretty much universal.

Lokak and Hurst also make floor shifters for the Jeep. CJDave adapted an XJ floor shifter on his '79 CJ that incorporated an auxiliary heater into it. It's pretty neat.

I have the Lokar. It is nice but I think it is awkward. I think I will like the shifter on the column better.

Re: Steering column

OK, then take a look at almost any early to late 80's model Jeep, and the column should work. It's the same with GM Vehicles, they use the same parts. Be careful, measure the length. Some GM columns can be a little long for a CJ7.
