Steering box...

How do you remove it? I can't see how the lines go in or how it hooks to that steering u-joint. Do just those two frame side bolts hold it in?

Umm, no. It's kind of a pain, with the stock fenders I am sure it will be even tougher. There are two lines that go into the top, the pressure and return line. When I removed mine the metal lines both twisted and broke so I had to get replacements. Tried everywhere and napa ended up having them finally. Then there is the small bolt that holds the steering shaft to the spline, obviously the pitman arm. Then four bolts hold it to the frame and a couple more to the frame plate bracket

well, I don't have a write up, or any pics, but here's what I remember from when I pulled mine off to rebuild it;

The steering shaft has a splined "clamp" thing on the end of it. You have to fully remove the bolt from that clamp, and it will just slide off of the box (That is, assuming that the slip joint in the shaft isn't siezed, and you can actually compress the shaft.) If you can't compress the shaft, just remove the clamp bolt, and you can pull the box out of the shaft once the box is un-bolted from the frame.

I found it much easier to disconnect the lines from the pump and res, and remove the box with the lines attached. Once the box is removed, you can place it in a vice, and it's much easier to remove the lines.

You will also need to remove the pitman arm. It can be removed without a puller, but having a puller makes it a lot easier.

And to remove the box, IIRC, there are 4 bolts that go in from the outside of the frame.
