    You went to effectively crossover steering with a Ross? If so, neat setup.

    When I first put my Jeep together, I used a 1 piece tie rod with the 2 hole TRE. Still had the Ross box (rebuilt). Later I swapped to a manual Saginaw setup...HUGE improvement. Later still, I went to the 2 hole knuckle...minor, but noticeable improvement. I have all the parts to make it power steering...just need the time to get it done.

    I have a NT30 with a two hole knuckle and Ford Sag. I'm not some burely guy or nothing, and I don't see a need for power steering. I did them both at the same time though. It would a been nice to see how each step improved the feel.

    After 2' of snow this week.. the CJ5 is basically mothballed for the winter..

    I like this but what are you doing for an oil filter?

    I don’t run a filter. I have a rare earth magnet on the drain plug, and I try to remember to change the oil often.

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Pressure should be about right if I remember right.

    Got any pics?
