new steering box
 
Ok guys, I need to replace my steering box on my 00TJ, (I have needed to do this for a while now) I would like to do the Durango swap. My question is what year am I looking for, my research tells me 1999. Is this correct? Has anyone done this swap?

Yes, good info here:

I ran with one for years, but now I just use a reman stock one. It's too hard to find a Durango one in a junk yard that's in good shape, and I actually prefer the handling of the stock one. Others disagree with me, it's a matter of preference, try one and see if you like it. Easy mod.

IF you can't find it at a junk yard, just order one from rockauto.com. Here's some info that will save ya some cash if you do decide to order online:

i'll be needing to do this as well...starting to leak with the 35's on there...

Thanks guys, mine is not leaking, it just feels sloppy. It's not the ball joints, tie rod or pitman arm, as thoes are all new. I'm going to try tightening the adjustment nut a bit befor I purches a new gear box. I'm going to work on it tomorrow morning, I'll let you all know how it turns out.
