durango steering box

ive heard that some people have been switching out their stock steering box for one from a Dodge Durango due to it being a little beefier. has anyone had any experience in doing this successfully? and if so what year Durango works ? how much should i pay at a salvage yard?

Yet I'm on my way to the junkyard today, to find a 1999 Dodge Durango.

This truck supposedly has a steering box that is a direct swap, (uses the YJ lines) for the YJ unit. The Durango box uses one less mounting bolt, & provides a quicker steering ratio, & a firmer feel.

IIRC the YJ's box has a 3-1/4 turn lock to lock, & the Durango box has a 2-3/4 turn lock to lock.

jeepforum was my source for this info.

You can also use the box out of an S-10.
