I saw somewhere info on steering upgrades for Jeep TJ's. Can't find it now. The J20 was equipped with a Saginaw 800 series steering gear which was designed for 3/4 to 1 ton trucks and would replace the TJ steering gear with little or no modifications. Anyone know if this is true? I did a google search but didn't find what I was looking for... Application, identification, etc. And how much steering improvement you would gain over the stock steering gear.

I believe the J20 box has an extra bolt that won't be used in a TJ. To summarize the link, look for a late 90's 4x4 Durango with the V8. Also, somebody who used a 79 J20 box had the wrong fittings (inverted) while a 1980 had the correct ones.
