Snapped Steering Box

A snapped steering box sector shaft can be a real fun stopper. However, it usually only happens on Jeeps with tires bigger than 35 inches tall. In the past, we have been fairly successful at beveling the shaft and welding it back together with a 3/32-inch 7018 arc welding rod. A ram assist steering system helps alleviate the stress that causes this kind of damage.
