I'm bringing home a J10 tomorrow

I went to get it the other day and discovered the rag joint was missing from the steering box. Like, from the clamp to the rag itself, gone. It came to me that somewhere I had a 76 Camaro sub frame that might have a steering box on it, and maybe even a rag joint, so I found it under the cut up remains of an XJ. I figure the J10 has a Saginaw steering column, so it should have a Saginaw steering box. Is my line of thinking correct?

On Rockauto, they show to use the same coupler (what I call a rag), but don't list the complete assembly for the J10 as they do the Camaro, which lists a Dorman 31015. I'd think if the assembly was the same, they might as well list it for the J10. If this thing doesn't fit, it's going to be fun to load.

Spline count may be different. I have rebuilt a Camaro coupler with a Jeep service kit though.

It won't likely fit as the splined input shaft on the J truck steering boxes is typically larger at 13/16" while most car/SUV stuff is only 3/4".

Smaller Jeeps (YJ/TJ/XJ) use the 3/4" version that's more common and the same as the mullet car.

Only other thing I can imagine might work in my possession is one from a 79 K20.

I thought the mullet came into popularity with the third generation, or perhaps the late second in 78.

Shit, Dorman lists that one as a 31011, 3/4" 17 spline.

Not content to wonder, I just took the piece over there and tried it.

It fits.

I've owned at least 10 FSJ boxes and every one of them was/is 3/4". Oddly enough CJ power boxes are 13/16".
