Help with steering column!

Hey guys, I'm looking at this '87 Jeep wrangler as a possibility for my first Jeep but it needs a steering block.... Anyone know of a good place to get one? around how much should it cost me? Also, is needing a steering block a MAJOR issue? Just so know if this is a good deal or not. The dude wants 3,500 for the car and it has zero rust.
Any help would be great!

Check quadratec.com for a price. They should have it. I wouldn't think it would be to much. If not im sure you could find a parts Jeep somewhere you could get one out of. Good luck hope you can make a deal with this guy!

Tilt steering wheel to get it out of the way when you get in or out. Adjust to your preference for steering. Great find no rust is a huge plus.

Tilt wheel is great. When looking for rust, be sure to climb around underneath. Sometimes the tubs start rotting from the bottom up. Also, check the frame around the shock tabs (Where the shocks mount to the frame) for rot. Pretty comon in that area also. Good luck.

Here is a dumb question, what the hell is a steering block?
