    Power steering on a 79 CJ5

    How difficult is it to convert to power steering on a 79 CJ5? It has the AMC 304. Are there kits for this or do I have to source the parts individually?

    Is this a trail rig or street queen?

    I know that on the Earlier ones (70 and prior ) they offer kits to convert them. On yours it should just be a matter of sourcing the parts from a jeep with power steering.

    Maybe if it is trailer only but a power steering box will be enough for the 33's.
