Durango steering box

Anyone tried it? I've seen it done, and it's bolt on. It's ironic that it's only $169.00 where as the TJ box is around 300-500 depending on where you look.
Any comments?

One of the best mods I have done. It is GREAT!

Get a Durango box from a 98 with a 318 V8 (if im not mistaken) WITHOUT the snowplow package!

I could have swore I heard people say get the snow plow option. How different is the box?

On a side note, are you the monster in the picture?

forgive my ignorance, but what is the advantage of the durango box over the stock Jeep one?

I believe it's only bolt-on for 2002 and older TJ's

Same box other than the snowplow option requires more turns lock to lock.

Yes, my avatar is me along with my trusty Jeep pulling dually.

No ignorance.... The advantage is that the Durango box has a larger piston inside of the box (moves more fluid) and requires fewer turns lock to lock (turns of the steering wheel to max out) than the stock TJ steering box.


**** Double check the 2002 + older comment. That may be true and I forgot about it!***

Make sure you priced the correct box. 03-06 Tjs take a little more work. You will find a ton of "comments" when you try a search. It's been done a lot.

I got the plow package one. Works great, very strong. I had to upgrade to v8 zj steering as I kept bending the small TJ cross bar. now either the jeep moves or whatever its up against moves
