Re: Jeep box upgrade-PICS-and then some...

I am currently doing this swap. Got a box out of a 97 grand Cherokee at Pull-a-part. Just rebuilt it and the PS pump. Can I use ATF or do I need to use PS fluid for the box?

Since they are both about the same cost, I'd use power steering fluid. However, I do admit that I have used ATF before with apparently no ill effects.

Here's a great article by Jeff Smith on this topic.

In the comments section, there are updated parts listed to adapt these steering boxes :
