Along the same lines of WM69 question above. Can you measure the diameter of the front of the box? We want to see if the piston is larger then the J20 boxes. A little late now but the J20 boxes are a lot cheaper then a H1!

I am going to have to check that out. I guess we could just cut a spacer out of some steel and make something work. I was hoping someone with my mount would post up with the pics of what they did. Tomorrow I will see what I can find out. Thanks. Maybe MORE even has a spacer to fix the issue?

How much is a "new" remanned J20 box? I actually thought I got a great price on the H1 box.

O' Reiley's is showing 119 with a 45 core. But I have heard you must check what you get to make sure it is a true 4in diameter, as somtimes they stick a smaller piston box or one with 3 mounting holes instead of 4. Thats why Im wondering the size of the H1 It may be worth it to know what your getting. Here are a few links on here I have found on the J20 swap. If anyone is intrested:

I put in the AGR Superbox 2 and pump about 3 months ago and am very happy. World of difference. I had manual steering before, so cant compare to another box but love it so far. I run 35's and lockers front and rear. Just my 2cents

I just got off the phone with M.O.R.E and they assured me that I installed it the correct way. He said that I would have absolutely no problems. We will see . . . . .

Just FYI, I still have my old CJ gear box and just going off the end cap OD size the H1 gear is larger. Measures 4.25 OD and the CJ box end cap is like 3.75.

I wasn't able to measure the difference yet between the two. Thanks for the post. The H1 box is definitely bigger than the OEM unit. Much heavier duty looking. The new lines should be In tomorrow so hopefully everything works out and I can give a road test review.

Haven't driven it yet but just sitting in the garage bay its much better. No flexing on the output shaft and no leaking. Everything went right in. New warrior products hangers too.

The #19 post in this links states the H1 box is backwards, can you confirm if this is true or not? Does your steering work correctly?

Great, The claim on that thread was that your steering would be backwards. So if you turned the wheel to go right the jeep would go left.
