Hey guys we're looking for a tilt steering column for our '77 CJ7. What columns from which rigs will work? Where should I start looking and what should I expect to pay?

I have used two, but on an early CJ. One was from a 92 Camarro and one from a lat 80's S10. They were both custom install, but the length was very close to correct. My latest one, S10, I got on Ebay brand new from a guy that did not finish his Jeep. The other one was also from Ebay from a wrecked car, but was in perfect shape. Both were under $100 shipped.

Those are GM-type columns; lots of rigs run 'em. I have the same flavor in my -5, but it's from an early XJ.



Eric Ruhl's -7 has a GM column as well.

So you ask one thing then another . . .

What do you really want?

keep looking.
my 82 cj-5 came with one and as far as i can tell they look exactly the same as one from any full size jeep so that may be a swap also
