Power steering conversion donor

What years will the jeep pickup work for conversion? Anything else that would be easy to find in todays junkyard. I know there is a jeep pickup in my local yard, but not sure what year yet.

Finding a box that accepts four bolts and an extra bolt to fill the hole.

Didn't find a think on my trip to the junkyard that looks close. The only thing I found that resembles it is an S10. Anyone done a conversion with an S10 box?

All GM tuck boxes that I know of are Saganaw boxes. They have a cast, somewhat fancy, "S" on the box. Look for ones that have 4 holes. The a junkyard has GM vehicles, it will have lots of boxes.......

Here are two. The smaller one is from a Waggie and the larger is from a J20 truck.
