I've got one. I also have 06 which is a different box than the 04-previous. I also kept my old box in case this one fails, then I will get a redhead. Bought a junkyard core to turn in. I think at this point it works fine for me. I've got about 9k miles on it so far(mostly highway). I also got it almost at cost, so I can't complain too much.

Are you sure it's the box? Bad ball joints, hub bearings, drag link, tie rods and alignment will also cause this issue.

I have one on my OBS. Second one because I screwed up the first by over-tightening the adjustment and replaced it free under warranty *just in case*. It seems to work just fine from O'Reilly. As far as the truck with loose steering...it could be the gearbox but it could also not be. I've changed my tie rods and drag link, ball joints, bearings, and gearbox and my wheel STILL has a lot of slop. Make sure you look at everything else first.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

I have just a nut hair of slop in the primary rod end of the drag link, I'm going to replace it as well. The box and the link is the only two things I can find slack in at the moment.
