CJeep86 I bought and installed the Lares from Rock Auto and I'm really happy with it. I highly recommend the Borgeson steering shft with the vibration dampener too. I tried sending the CJ box back as a core but they didn't accept it.

cpadget My '83 was 100% bolt on. x2 on Borgeson shaft, also 100% bolt on.

I jumped on it - even with the high core charge cause i knew i might now find another. Ive been looking for a while.

Got the MORE mount, new PS hoses, new steering shaft upper bushing kit. Man i sure hope this is ‘really’ bolt on. [emoji1787]

If you’re running a stock steering shaft, I recommend upgrading to a Borgeson at the same time.

cpadget Good luck. I will be curious to hear how it turns out. Game changer for mine.

GP_Pete All ready to do this. Been soaking bolts in pb blaster. Probably start tomorrow.

dmoore_64 Does anyone know if the m.o.r.e. heavy duty bracket will work on the older jeeps? I have a 74 cj5 with manual steering, and am going to be doing the H1 upgrade to power steering, and I am only able to find the heavy duty brackets that list for 76 and up. Has anyone tried to use them on older jeeps?

cpadget Great picture. Legitimate activity to say the least!!!

RARECJ8 First weld repair to get into camp. Was drizzling ice cold rain. Ugh. Observation Point. Then into rubicon springs for a more thorough repair.

Present is the OEM box that came with jeep in 81. Will keep it as a spare...

Using a late model pump with the restrictor drilled out for better flow. This is the last frontier as it’s the last untouched part of the heep. No leaks but since engine is out (oil analysis came back explaining the sudden serious tap tap tap sound-full of aluminum and babbit material) might as well upgrade steering.

Plus the never ending frame repair. There is now a brace from OEM box to pass frame and it is cracking pass frame rail from stresses. Ultimately hydro assist will alleviate much of that. Had to weld up to get out of rubicon in September.

I am sure you have heard this before but "Luck favors the prepared"

RARECJ8 made executive decision to go a completely different direction. Stepping up to the PSC system, pump, expansion chamber and the whole enchilada. $1200 later parts on the way.

Yikes!

Summit racing is local = easy. Has anyone elde been challenged on a CJ core for a H1 box?

Also, I prefer new. Found several on hummer parts sites but approx $1500! Yikes!
