Another Steering Question

what will swap with my 5 as far as a tilt steering column and steering shaft? I going to go with a J10 steering box and power steering. I dont have the funds to drop 800 on new stuff I was just wondering if some junk yard stuff would bolt up. There are no Jeeps around here in our salvage yards so it would have to be something else. I thought I read that Chevy would work just wanted to make sure. Thanks for all the help.

Someone just posted stating they installed a Grand Wagoneer column and it was a bolt in with the exception of the lower shaft that needed to be shortened.

There are several direct bolt ins. I know of an s10 steering column working in a jeep as well. I believe when they did the outsourcing for the parts, it includes many other car models that actually have the same columns.

No I do not, sorry. I just have read so many build threads on many different sites and what not. This is stuff I have gathered from my many hours of reading this stuff while at work. I do know the s10's work really well, have seen several jeeps converted, and I think it looks good, other than the stock s10 steering wheel still being attached while in the jeep. lol

Any CJ or FSJ column from at least 1976-up. Just use a shaft with the correct box coupling.


These aren't hard to find. Create a thread in the JF's Wanted Forum.

Are the S10 column's bolt in or do you have to modify them or fab some brackets?

I have never did one personally, but from the looks of it, it looks pretty straightforward.
