M.O.R.E. Has answered the problem with the steering when you move your front axle forward. This New Heavy Duty steering box bracket will move your steering gear forward 1- 1/4". This will keep the drag link from interfering with the tie rod and like the standard bracket will keep the steering gear from being ripped off the frame. Made from 3/8" and 1/2" steel plate. Works with a Shackle Reversal System, or stock set-up.
You will have to notch the front crossmember of your frame for clearance.
Fits 1976-1986 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7, CJ-8
