    Ok great to know! Did it come with solid instructions?

    So... no leaking, no adverse effects on pump or steering components. Submerged it with water over the tires... it did fine. It doesn't feel much different than stock on the road. It does not refuse to turn the tires when backing my trailer up, where the old box and pump would sometimes have issues when pushing the trailer uphill and backwards.

    I would buy it again, I don't regret not getting a ram assist at this point. 90% of my driving is on pavement. It doesn't have any issues at this point!
    Thanks for sharing this with us, I am looking into getting this box myself

    Yes... but it wouldn't hurt for you to look at an online video of installing a steering box. You have 4 frame bolts, two hoses to attach, the steering shaft that runs through the firewall to your wheel (1 bolt and nut there), and the Pitman arm nut. So 8 totally steps to take off, and 8 steps to put back on. Move the coolant tank.... and bungie it back... you should be good to go.
    God's area code is 406!

    Sounds like a breeze. Thanks for all the info.
