i bought one and rebuilt it. you can grind down the bump stops on the end cap/plug and then remove the big snap ring on the inside to give you all the turning ability the box can give. now i just need to adjust the steering bump stops on the axle, though that needed to happen even beforehand anyway
Lol. It came with an 8.5 la lift, brand new pro-comp 12x15 6" offset rims, 35x14.50x15 pit bull crawlers (brand new), all on a 1988 xj. The lift was installed way wrong and the fuel pump was out. Paid the 18 yr old kid $1800 for it. Took 3 days and now she's running tough. But the steering can't turn the tires off road and the box is worn out
How much of steering radius is lost? Like does it turn like a Chevy? Lol
the only thimg i can tell you is that i only have experience from mine. i notice no loss, though i was lucky enough to find info about grinding the bumpstops off the cap and the snap ring in the housing before i took on the rebuild.
i do know there is a difference in turning ratio between the snow plow option and non, though i dint know which is which. sorry not much help but i did what you guys are doing...googling and asking. im sure someone actually knows an cam help you.
if interested i can get all the links i used when i rebuilt mine and what i consider the best threads i found...
