    Has anybody seen or used a steering box and pump from a 99' dodge half ton truck in there FJ40? I know everyone likes the saginaw but I don't have one. I have access to a dodge and the price is right (free).

    As long as it mounts inside the frame( and it does ) I do not see why it would not work....


    I was looking at the steering gear on my '96 one ton dodge and thinking the same thing....


    Post up how it works out!



    Good luck!

    Thanks Poser I am doing some trading for the PS and a rear back seat so the kids can ride.

    From what I understand the Dodge steering boxes of that vintage were not the most robust items in the world. I know three very unhappy dodge owners due to the sector shaft leaking within 50 K

    Heck, I know one guy that is planning on hydro assist on a street truck just to try to aleviate the issue.
