MB Ross steering box in a CJ3A
« on: October 01, 2020, 02:46:02 PM »
Hi everybody,

I would like to know if it is good idea to install a new Ross box from the MB in my CJ3A. Are the original and the MB interchangeable?

Many thanks for your experience.

The Ross gear box is the same.  The CJ3A worm gear/inner shaft and the outer tube are longer than the MB version by a couple inches.
