I have a 1985 Cj, not yj, that has no power steering. I was wondering if it could be done without buying aftermarket. so...
question 1) did the jeeps in that year have it as an option?
2) How many years near there had it and would it be adaptable?
3) Would aftermarket be the best way to go or can this be done reasonably?

Specs: 258 with carb. Two inch lift. manual trans (4 speed I think). Rack and pinion steering is what came stock (I think) Thanks for the help guys. If all goes well I will do a write up on what I find (it'll be my first official write up!! Go me!).

Hey I'm not to sure about 85 but I know that my 84' had power steering. So I know that the year around it had it, don't know if mine was an option or not. Everytime I did something with the steering all the auto shops had info for my 84 CJ7 with power steering. Hope this helps a little.

I have an '85 and '86 CJ7. Both of which have factory power steering. I'm sure its just a matter of tossing a pump on the motor and the box on the frame and there you'd have it. I can't imagine it being too difficult. May have to pick up a new steering shaft with the box too but like any CJ if you still have the original you could probably use this upgrade anyways. Hope it helps
