Default 2013+ steering gearbox in older trucks

I'm pretty sure someone here talked about it and they did the swap, I just can't remember who.

Can it be done? Looking under my 2015, they look WAY beefier then the 2005 boxes. The bolt pattern is the same bolting to the frame, and the pitman arm placement looks to be the same. Just not sure about the lines going in, or the steering wheel shaft coming from the steering wheel will bolt up.



Thanks!

Thank you. I'll be using your thread to figure out if it's a direct swap to pre2007 trucks.

On pre 07 trucks you have to change the steering shaft too iirc. They changed how the steering shafts connect to the box but the steering shaft change was also a bolt in job. Just the lower section needs changed.


Now does anyone know if the diesel boxes are different from the gas boxes? And what years did they change 11-16. I know they're suppose to be some improvements in the later boxes.

They can be made to work but one of the lines is different also.

The box I tried the swap with came off a gas job 2016. I've also posted the VIN# of that truck in the other thread (link in previous post).

You mean the line you have to replace when converting to a 2005+ box?

Following this one. Been sorting out some issues with my 01 f-450, think my last issue is a worn steering box. Trucks about to click over 300k miles so i'd say it may have a little wear. Haven't looked at the box on my '14 but with 58k miles and 35"s the steering on it is TIGHT and smooth, virtually no play at all. Would love to get my f450 close to it.

It's funny how Redhead said there was ABSOLUTELY no way to put that box in a 2007 truck, unless you custom made it work.
