what is it for cry in out loud!

our first jeep was sold to us as a 1996 tj. looks like we need a new steering box. all the parts sites we visit skip 1996 as if it never existed! i found something about jeep introducing tj in mid 96 so what year and model parts do we search for? leave it up to us to get an odd duck for our first try!

Buy 1997 parts, you'll be fine.

There wasn't a 1996 model year for the Wrangler. The 1995 YJ model year ran long and the 1997 model year TJ started early. If you have coil springs and round headlights, you probably have an early 1997 TJ. You can find VIN decoders online if you want to check.
