I wouldn't buy one online, I would get it from a local sore, there are alot of poorly reman'd products you can get online. Go somewhere that uses A1 Cardone or a company with a similar reputation. I would hate to see you go through all the labor and fight that thing for it to be a repainted junkyard item to save a few bucks.

They are Redhead and that is the only place to go.

I stripped my internals doing rockcrawling last year, so i priced them out. $374 at any dealer(reman only), bit more from redhead, with shipping both ways, 100-200 at wrecking yards. $1100 for ORU new steering box ported and built with Hydro assist steering kit. I went with ORU. With full time locker up front, i needed it. Dont think I will ever need another steering setup again.

Red head is the best replacement without doing something crazy like jetjock.

I would call redhead I got a ford reman box about 13 months ago and it doesn't seem as tight as I remember. I'll save and call them next time.
