I purchased this item in hopes of fixing a very sloppy steering issue. Upon removal of the factory (Cheap) stamped mount, I learned it was broken and had been for a long time. Install is pretty straight forward but does require some cutting of factory cross member, as well as, drilling an additional mounting hole on the top. It would of been helpful if M.O.R.E included a template for the hole to save time.

Seems to be pretty well built and is a MAJOR improvement over the factory junk 3 piece stamped sheet metal "mount".
Thank you for the question. Yes, Heavy-Duty Steering Box Mount part# MRESB7686Z
will fit your CJ7 with a 258ci and power steering.
Will this HD steering box bracket fit my 1979 CJ7 (power steering) frame without modification? Is it designed to replace the original parts? I have stock tires and steering parts (new steering parts but, never the less stock parts).
