I've never heard of that. Please educate me.

I've heard of people using GM 2wd boxes to run a standard pitman arm. This is necessary for crossover steering.

88-96. For the guys that don't know this trick. It gets rid of the shitty rag joint with a proper steering u-joint.

Just buy a Borgensom steering shaft for your truck. It's strong that the Xj onand doesn't require and modifications to fit.
At over two hundred dollars, sure!

Strength isn't as big of a deal as folks realize. The steering shaft is on the driver's side of the steering box. It was deemed strong enough for the XJ, and the only difference here is we have a slightly larger diameter steering wheel. Otherwise, the stresses are the same. Tires and vehicle weight don't affect the steering shaft.
