First take off the t-case drop and that combined with a BL will make the shifter travel differently in relation to the body causing it to hit the dash.

is it leaking from the box itself, or one of the lines from on top?

I have the same problem. Practically stole this 97 TJ from a guy who had lost his job and was selling off everything. Unfortunately, I have the same leaky steering gear. I've heard that you can use a 98/99 Durango steering box. It's supposed to be a more heavy duty box than the Jeep one and it bolts right on. I was also going to look into a seal kit to see if it wasn't too difficult to do. Anyone here know if its that difficult? Mine is leaking from the sector gear (pitman).
