should i get a durango box?

I work at autozone and so i get 20% off. with my discount a durango box would be about 160, and a stock replacement about 130. Is the durango box that much better? worth 30 bucks more?

YES GET IT. I "KNOW" it works with a 99 Durango 5.2L. I needs to be from the 5.2 and I think 98-99.

ok so i got the box put on and everything is pretty much buttoned up. just wanted to know how tight the line fittings should be, and how important is it that the pitman shaft nut is at 185ft/lbs? can i just go as tight as i can turn it?
