Ordered a header and head lights.
Also ordered a flex section for the new exhaust. I have decided to replace the entire exhaust system. Its rusty in spots, and hacked together.

Still need a few things, including a front O2 and a TPS.

Going to start a build thread when I start installing the parts.

Where is a good place to get the steering box from? I called a few places including the dealer looking for a box for a 99 Durango 5.2. The dealer had one in stock but almost 600 for a rebuilt box is insane!

I replaced my steering gear with this one: http://www.pscmotorsports.com/vehicl...cing-gear.html, which is brand new and not a reman. I like it, it tightened up the steering nicely and I am satisfied with the purchase. I also had a Red Head steering gear for awhile but I did not like that at all, it was just as loose as the OEM box.

EDIT: PSC Motorsports also sells a larger piston steering gear box, more akin to the Durango box: http://www.pscmotorsports.com/vehicl...ble-ratio.html. Sometimes I wish I coughed up the extra $200 for the nicer box, but I like the tactile feel that the first linked box provides, whereas I think that the larger piston box will provide one-finger steering, which I do not care for. You should know that the ratio of the first box is different than the OEM box, and therefore your turns happen much quicker. It takes awhile to get used to, but ultimately is a minor quirk.
