Tilt steering column resource

Purchased a rebuilt GM Saginaw tilt column to replace the non-tilt for comfort in my CJ-5. Had a problem with the remote rod, vendor stood by the product and replaced it no questions asked. Also talked me thru the lock pin problem (on a different CJ column) posted here. Responsive to phone calls and questions. Wanted to share this resource for those working on tilt columns, sooner or later we all do! Contact info: Don Krebbs 727-580-4518

Not sure, will check. Does some ebay sales I think. Word of mouth purchase for me. Wanted to stay stock. Not interested in the high priced aftermarket tilt columns - that don't look OEM.

Here's another source for OEM columns. I have not used them so can't comment on their work.

^^^I have used columns galore. They're reputable, knowledgeable and do nice work. Prompt shipping and crediting for returned cores, too.^^^

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

I forger whom it was n EBay that ws a "rebuilder" of GM columns but after two tries I still have tumler, haz button issues. Been working on other essential stuff that was getting in the way of this project, it's on the list. Point being, check references of the rebuilders on EBay (or others).

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep

Agreed. This forum has provided useful "buyer beware" warnings for tilt columns. I stayed away from them. That's why I wanted to share my positive experience. Might prove usefel for others looking for the original CJ style tilt column instead of the pricey aftermarket non-OEM style.

Update: vendor email is krebbom@gmail.com

Called columnsgalore.com I am looking to switch to a tilt. They need a core for a tilt column....too pricey. Not sure if the tilt is worth it to me

It sure made my CJ-5 more comfortable to enter, exit and drive! I'm 6'2" 195 lbs. Pushing the limits of the 5! The aftermarket seats raised me up even more. My tilt has been a nice upgrade.

$425 + $400 core?? (refundable). If it is my column and I want it rebuilt, why would they need a core charge???

$975 for a new one + $400 core (refundable)? If I needed a column, how would I have a core to return if I was buying new?

Totally confused by the pricing structure…

I had gotten mine off of eBay. Tilt column, nice work except the hazard switch was broken. Contacted seller who had good ratings, and he never responded. Wound up changing the switch myself and giving him a bad rating for not responding to my needs. I'll have to look up who I bought it from and post here later on.
