    Steering box mount

    My buddy has a Comanche sitting beside his garage that he used to wheel. I asked him about it and he quit wheeling it because he ripped the steering box out of the frame. He wants $200. Auto, 4.0, 4x4. Runs and drove fine until the box got ripped out. I haven't looked at it but was wondering from the experts here if there is a safe fix for a trail rig with very very limited street use. I know they are a unit body with a bed bolted on to the rear frame "rails". I like the thought of a Comanche on the trail and would like to build it. It already has a 3" lift he said. I have a friend who welds for a living also if that helps. Lastly, if it's worth fixing it is there a swap I can do to put the shifter on the column instead of the floor? Thanks in advance.

    I dont see why you couldn't. Some Comanches came with a colum shift. But what does the steering box have to do with a colum shift?

    it's pretty easy to fix and add a bracket to keep from happening again.

    I know my HiCountry front recovery brackets are massive and cover the inside, outside, and under the subframe around where the box mounts. It's also held on with the 3 steering box bolts, the two sway bar bolts, 2 skid plate bolts, and a bolt through the round hole behind the steering box holes.
