I finally got the rebuilt trans from Tellico back in my jeep this weekend, so its the first time I've driven it in the 4 months I've owned it. went to turn around in my cul-de-sac and had no power steering. checked the reservoir - it was bone dry, so I filled up the fluid cranked the wheel lock-to-lock fifty times and started it up. Power steering fluid began pooring out of the gear box seal and the pump
I've ordered a 98 Durango box from Napa, new hoses, a pump and a V-Belt. I'll take pics when i put it all in.
from what I've read the difference in the Durango box is that the interior gear set is a bit beefier than the stock one and the difference between the two Durango boxes (w. plow or w.o plow) is the number of turns on lock-to-lock
the one without the plow is closest to the jeep.
