Steering Box Going Bad

My '02, 4x4, auto F-250 just hit 200,000 miles and my steering box is going bad. Is there any reason why I should spend the extra money on one of the Red Head steering boxes?
I don't plan on lifting my truck, or if I did it would just be a leveling kit. I am going to up my tires to 275/65s though.

Thanks

I wouldn't spend the extra money to upgrade at that milage, but its personal preference really. I don't see the benefit.

Yea I guess you're right, replacing one every 200,000 miles really isn't that bad!
