What?? Rack and Pinion Steering?

I just noticed the following code on my build sheet:
Power Rack and Pinion Steering

I have been all over the underside and under the hood of my heep, and I have never seen a rack. Just a gear box. Anyone know what the deal is with this? Do any GC's come with steering racks???

This is my JEEP. There are many like it but this one is mine...

Normal. Chrysler seems to use the same build code for power steering no matter what it is. I'm sure it makes sense to them.

wonder if it was supposed to be heavy duty/high temperature power steering. I think this came on all V8 ZJ's though
