Durango Steering box rebuilt and ported

I was able to snag a Durango box. Around here they are more scarce than hens teeth, and I have done a complete rebuild with new seals and bearings. It is ported and plugged so you can use it as a standard box until you decide to go hydro assist. I'm asking $200 shipped via USPS Priority mail. It will go out Saturday. No core required. I accept PayPal (tom@a-v-t.com)

I will also have a standard XJ box done the same way available for $160.

I'm trying to fund my new teardrop offroad trailer I am building. The build thread will go up this weekend.

Re: Durango Steering box rebuilt and ported

I've got a stateside guy that PM'd me that was interested. I know you hear it all the time but shipping to Canada is a real pain.

What is the cheapest way to ship. USPS was quoting almost $150.

Re: Durango Steering box rebuilt and ported

USPS has always been cheapest for me. flat rate box has served me well size wise, at $10, but the weight is probably too much.

I totally understand the hassle, and didn't expect any favours (even if Tom is a name of great men) so by all means sell it on your side.
If you happen along another in the future I have a drop box stateside, but will be making a trip there a week from now... but won't again for a few months. I have been keeping an eye out for your threads on here, so if another pops up before I have purchased elsewhere (or butchered my own first) I will check in again.

Thanks

Tom

I figure it would run $120 shipped back to you. That includes a complete teardown, inspection, steering range modifications, cleaning including glass beading all external steel parts to remove rust, painting, baking, ported and pluged. It will have all new bearings and seals and be bench adjusted.
