Steering Box

This is one of the key parts of our Shrink-Ray TJ recipe: a front-sweep ’07 JK steering box from RockAuto (A-1 Cardone PN 27520). This box allowed us to significantly shorten the front framerails of our TJ. You could also source an early Ford, Scout, or right-hand-drive JK steering box to mount on the outside of the framerail. You’ll have to fab that yourself, as our plan was to recreate the steering of a JK on our TJ. Sort of. Oh yeah, you also have to be okay with dropping the front sway bar on your TJ. That’s fine by us, but body roll in the turns will be more noticeable.
