not sure if they will have plugs or just plastic caps, I would call and ask them and they might throw them in.

Either way they are standard fittings, so you just screw in the tap and cap it or use a plug.



I kept these and two spare lines in the truck incase I ever had an issue because if you lose a line you lose brakes and steering.

Appreciate ya Heavy_GD, Blue Top box comes with fittings pre installed to block off ports. This is good info for anyone who comes across this post. Thanks for all your help.

Just put a blue top on mine (with stock wheels). Too early to tell on reliability. But so far, very happy with the tight feel the steering has again.

You will need a 1-13/16" socket and a decent pitman arm removal tool. Out of the local parts stores, Autozone was the only one that had a tool that would barely fit. Hopefully that saves you some time.

Well BlueTop Steering Gear box is installed an I must say I鈥檓 in control again. It鈥檚 not 100% but I must say it鈥檚 pretty close. Little to no play in steering now. I am very pleased with going with BlueTop. Im still thinking about steering assist just because of the size of the tires. I don鈥檛 want to over work this steering box. Take care fellas

Glad you got it done. If you still have play, it must be in some of the linkage that's worn (tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.) Mine's as tight as a straight man's buttox in prison
