This is a bolt-in steering box mount for a 76-86 Jeep CJ. It is made by M.O.R.E.
We suggest using the box mount in every CJ with high-steer. This mount is constructed from 1/2" steel, and moves the steering box forward about 1.25". By moving the steering box forward, this helps keep the tie-rod from hitting the pitman arm in a high-steer application. It will also allow you to move your axle forward for better tire clearance, or to fit a shackle reversal kit.
In order to hook everything back up, you will need to trim the front cross-member. This will allow for the power steering lines to clear. At our shop, we use a plasma cutter. At home, you can use a cutt-off wheel, or a cutting torch. As far as extending the steering shaft, this can also be done with a small torch. Once the shaft is heated and the injected plastic is burned from the slip shaft, it can be extended to fit.
Raw Metal. Will need to be painted.

WARNING: While this box mount is a "bolt-in" replacement, it will still require such tools as a cut-off wheel, angle grinder, cutting torch, and/or plasma cutter.
