Smile I need info on a steering gear box for 1980 CJ-7

My brother is working on his jeep and wanted me to get online and find out information on a steering gear box for a 1980 CJ-7. He needs to know the cost and if there is any other year besides 1980 that will fit. I hope someone can help me. deeahanna123

He should be able to get a remanufactured won at most auto parts stores. I recently did a power steering conversion on my 79 cj-5 and I got one for 200.00 with a core trade in. If he wants to find a junkyard one there should be a lot of other years that fit. The tech guys at four wheel drive hardware are pretty knowledgeable and helpful their website is www.fourwheeldrivehardware.com. The number is

1980-86 CJ boxes are the same. A new factory type replacement costs $180 for manual steering and $290 for power steering. The Super Box (which I have and is a great investment) is $350 or $370 depending on which type you buy. I'm sure they have the boxes on thier wewbsite 4wd.com

85 CJ-7. 79 vette 350 conversion. 4.56 gears. Lockers. 4" Explorer Pro Comp suspension, 3" body lift. 38" Super Swamper TSL's. Looking to go SOA and take off the body lift.

As long as its LHD !

Mines RHD and iv been doing backflips to try and find one... quotes of $1200 from Willys Overland !!!! ARGGHHHH.

In the end im getting it recon'd for USD$210 or GBP160. OUCH.

Oh and if anyone else out there decides to take their Jeep to Dave Sargent in Doncaster - they better be prepared to get the work done all over again - as he is ****.
