Power Steering (Help!)

My 92 YJ is Manual steering, I want to change it to power steering. I have the power steering box and steering arm from a 92 powered YJ, and I know I need a pump, reservoir, hoses, and a different pitman arm.

Could someone give me som pointers or what else I need to get this going? Thanks!

I don't know about YJ's, but my CJ steering shaft didn't fit the power gearbox, so you might see about getting that too.
Oh, and get the mounting bracket for the pump-to-motor.

I have a pump, hoses and assorted brackets off a 4cyl YJ. I also have a spare pump from a 6cyl CJ. Not sure if I have pulleys (I might). Let me know if you're interested and where you live - see if we can work out a dealio...

You need the gearbox, pump, bracket, new belt and hoses, and new shaft.

Your old pitman arm should work.

Would the PS gearbox and pump off of a '86 or '88 XJ work on a YJ?
