If I recall the snow plow model is the same or close to the TJ steering gear as far as the number of turns of the steering wheel from lock-to-lock. The standard durango box has a quicker turning ratio (less turns of the steering wheel from lock-to-lock). Thank you.

If you had the 4.7L V8 dodge
like the Currie Antirock. Steering If you push your jeep there is no doubt you will end up with damage to your tie rod. Heavy duty tie rods can be had for under 100 and most work with stock tie rod ends(TRE). More extensive steering systems such a Curries complete steering system are a little more expensive but also replaces the drag link as well as the tire rod and includes stronger 78 TREs. dodge

I bought my GL450 because I love my Mercedes Benz E55 AMG so much. I bought another Benz because of the quality previously displayed and that one would reasonably expect. Maybe I should have kept my dodge
