Re: Steering Gear Box

PSC box and 4.5" pulley provides one finger turning effort in 4Low, locked with 33's.

I dealt with multiple reman boxes which performed worse than my tired factory box. In doing so, I discovered that all boxed from NAPA, OReailly, AutoZone, etc are sourced from the same reman outfit in Mexico and they just slap a different label on the box. QC is marginal at best and it's a crap shoot on getting one that actually works well.

The stock box was designed to turn 235/75/15's. One cannot expect a stock box to provide the same level of performance when you add tires which are 4-7 sizes larger, double the weight and rolling resistance/ground pressure.
