I hated not being able to drive my jeep on the road and did the frame mods to be able to use an 03 and older steering box. Order a new durango box and drilled and taped it for hydro assit and all my steeering problems were solved. I was DDing the jeep to work a few days a week after that.

At this point in my build, I had bought a new air compressor, plasma cutter, all the tools to install ring, pinions and carriers and a much larger toolbox. I did all the work myself except for some of the more critical welding and it was a learning process for me.

I made 23 trips in the jeep in 12-13 months and the jeep worked great until the engine developed a rod knock at AOP.


So I had to move on to a stage two build. I will post more on this later, I have to do some work today.

How streetable is it? Im seriously thinking about selling my jeep and putting the money into the wife's LJ but she drives it dang near everyday.
I was driving it to work every Friday before the inline-six died. I had some shimmy at 52-53 mph but it was smooth as glass every other speed up to 80 mph. I never when past 80 mph. I suspect that when I get rid of the weld on bead locks that I will not have any shimmy at all.
