steering box main nut TJ wrangler 1997 not a mechanic

hello. i have bought a new steering box to replace. i have my old tJ and wont let go so i am replacing parts etc.

i am trying to figure what torque i need for the steering box. i am thinking of buying a milwaukee high torque 2767 /20

i am not sure of the torque required for this bolt.

are there other impact wrenches i could use to get this bolt off

thanks

The torque spec for that nut is 185 ft-lbs. Most any 1/2" drive impact wrench will easily get that nut off. It's difficult with even a ratchet wrench with an extension or breaker bar but even an inexpensive Harbor Freight Tools 1/2" air powered impact wrench will make short work of it.

Make sure you have a torque wrench when you install the new parts.

Agreed, you just have to know to go for their better and more powerful double-anvil models which put out significantly more torque. Their cheapest models are single-anvil and aren't powerful enough for some jobs.
