Thumbs up Thanks for Steering Columns! & Steering box questions...

I needed two steering columns, one for my FSJ, one for my CJ that has a FSJ column in it now, but is shot.

Two of (more quiet) members stepped up and sold me columns for a very reasonable price, and the columns were EXACTLY as advertised! NO SUPRISES!

As far as I'm concerned, these two guy are top notch in my book!

User name Wagoncrzy gave me an excellent price, prompt shipping, and a complete column.
No wires cut were they weren't supposed to be,
All switches there are working,
No sloppy tilt, No missing keys, and he also threw in the lower link to the steering box!
Simply couldn't have been a better or more painless transaction!

The second guy was user name Gadgetman.
Same for him, Excellent colum, with a good leather steering wheel!
Something I desprately need!
My steering vehicle came from Las Vegas, so no rust, but the sun has had it's way with the steering wheel!
No suprises, Propmt shipping, and a very good, tight column for an insanely reasonable price!
--------------------

Now!
Who can tell me what jeep vehicles had Variable Rate steering boxes that will work with a Grand Wagon?

I've heard that J-10's didn't but J-20's did have variable rate boxes... Is that true?
(...or as I suspect, both did...)

Does anyone know off the top of their heads if a '79 J-20 box will fit an '80's wagon with out problems?
The J-20 box seems to have a larger output (pitman arm) shaft, but I haven't actually got under there and measured it (SNOW!)...

Trying to patch up last seasons carnage before next seasons carnage starts!

Check the spline count on the J20 input compared to your waggy's input. My '79 J20 box was a direct swap for one of my projects. The pitman shaft is the same shaft.
Note that the '79 takes flared hose fittings where you will have metric 0-ring fittings on your power steering pressure hose so you will either need a custom hose to your pump or swap the pump to a pre '80 flare fitting one.
