I wonder if its just a line thats leaking or the resevoir or the actual gear box. The gear box looks like the only expensive part. New from jeepsareus, the gear box is over $500...

but if the leak is in the resevoir then the part cost is only $45...

*edit: sorry, I was looking around some more and found this link

those are the parts and prices for the 4 cyl pump/resevoir and lines, etc... The $45 part I posted above was for the 6 cyl.

Even if it is the gear you can pull it out and put a seal kit in there for around $30.00 - $50.00 Dollars, I woud make an offer aound $500.00 or so less and what they say.

You could even get a quality reman Box for aorund 2-3 hundred dollars.

there is a seal at the bottom of the steering box if thats all thats leaking its a cheap fix recently had to havethat seal fixed on my jeep cost me with labor lik 75-80$

If you can lift it, You can fix it. I was scared s***less about pulling springs out but i would have no problem taking my Gearbox off and resealing it. If youre not comfotable take it to a reputable shop.

Not a Chain store ie Pepboys.
