PSC steering box

my steering box is toast. im looking at the PSC steering boxes. whats with the Remanufactured O.E steering box for the tj? will it even be an upgrade? stronger? more reliable?.. or is it just like a brand new stock steering box. im not wanting to spend a whole lot, but if its going to be worth it i'll order one of the other ones if this one is just going to be like the stock one.
it seems like a good deal, even if it wont be an upgrade. because auto part stores are wanting $180 + for a new steering box of some other brand ive never heard of.

but the PSC box looks beast and they're a awesome company

I spent last night reading all kinds of threads on Steering Gear Boxes.

Basically PSC is a great company and makes a great product (I'm actually surprised that price is so reasonable).

Durango box isn't needed unless you have big tires 34"+, but it does has shorter turn lock to lock which might be nice and feel slightly quicker in the steering. Durango box is $170ish around me NAPA etc.

The stock TJ rebuild from autozone etc is $140 and all the vast majority of us need.

So to me, the PSC doesnt look bad at all for $160, although, shipping and possibly return core shipping might be a pain and $$.

If you want something now and run 33's or less I would just go stock TJ replacement from a local place.

i went with PSC along with the rmote reservoir, new pully and all new hoses. my only issue is with overheating on the trails but that will be fixed here shortly as i bought a cooler for it. with my 35s aired down to 5psi i have complete control of the steering wheel with ease. even my 11 year old son can drive it aired down like that. no fighting the wheel

I am looking at buying a similar PSC setup. Is there any advantage in using the remote reservoir over the onboard? Did your belt size change at all? Also what skid plate do you have on there?

Thanks!
