Steering box popping

So was getting a pop a slow speeds and parked hard left to hard right pretty sure it's the box going as had my hand on it and could feel it. So looking for recommendations for a beast of a box? Jeep has 35's and lifted almost 100k so would like to replace it with something built for abuse

Make sure it is not the steering shaft itself, it will pop due to the carrier bearing being dry of grease (or worn out) and/or the slip joint (where it goes into the firewall) being dry.

Thanks will check that today. Been looking at the PSC SG400R big bore box. Anyone have this if so has it been reliable? How was the install. I do have a 1 1/2 body lift so should be able to fit this.
