Note: Some modifications are required for installation. The handling improvements are very good with this kit. It comes with complete instructions for install. Additional photos are available.
This kit is designed to replace your existing manual steering with the Ross steering box. The advantage of the reverse Ford steering box whether it is power or manual is where the box is mounted. With the mounting kit supplied, this allows the box to mount behind the front crossmember and in front of the drivers side engine mount on the inside of the frame.
Note: A 3 bolt FORD reverse rotation steering box (manual or power) is required for this kit.
Application: 4-134 L engine, 4-134 F engine
Fits: 46-49 CJ-2A, 49-53 CJ-3A, 53-64 CJ-3B, 55-71 CJ-5
