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?

Jeep –noun (jēp)
A Four wheel mechanized device surrounded by glass and metal designed for the frequent consumption of the owner/operator's money. Jeeps are also linked to diseases such as Jeep envy which can be diagnosed by unusual urges for items such as bigger tires,lift kits, shocks and AMC 401s. As well as the urge to pour money into more than one Jeep. Side effects may be spouse accruing numerous "honey-do's", as well as trips to inlaws. Grease under your nails, numerous trips to NAPA and junk yards, and spare parts in the attic may indicate an addiction. There are no known cures. However there are support groups such as JeepForum.com

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