ididit inc. we build steering columns for just about anything. Go look www.ididitinc.com I am a employee and also a new member here. I work in the R&D dept and the boss wanted to offer columns for jeeps.... So I was out looking for jeep owners for the prototype vehicles. And Joe happen to have one we were looking for. Were still looking for a 76-86 CJ 7 with a automatic trans, and a 72-75 CJ5. These people could also get a free steering column.

Didn't see pricing on your web site.

I need one for a 90 YJ.

Prices for paintable and chrome?

Not to be a smart aleck but how is the quality of the chrome? I deal with chrome alot and don't want to spend the extra money on something that will start to corrode in a short time. Any written guarantee on the chrome?

Chrome. triple plate. copper, nickel, chrome. Show quality&#33;&#33; this stuff is for custom cars and specialty vehicles. You expect the best&#33;&#33; We have only had 2 returns on bad chrome in 20 years&#33;&#33; No questions asked replaced with a new column. one was barried in saltwater mud down in New Orleans. and one was overexposure to heat when a car burnt to the ground.
But we dont offer a column for the YJ yet. Sorry and the pricing hasn&#39;t been figured out yet, were still trying to get the applications figured out.

My tub is glass, but why would that matter? Everything in my tub is the same as if it were steel, the way the current stock column mounts in my tub is the way it mounted in the steel tub.

No big deal, just curuious.

Rats&#33; I wish this would have come up when you, Terry, and I were discussing a u-joint solution for our product a couple months ago in Ann Arbor. I own an &#39;82 CJ7 with a steel body and manual trans.

Welcome aboard, Scott&#33;

Ididit is a top-notch company to work with and their products are excellent&#33;

IronMan, We try to use only original vehicles with all original parts. that way we can garentee fit. If a PO changed somthing we will not know anybetter and will produce a column that may not fit. If the rust is still on the bolts with a little dust on top... we know its original and we can get good info. This way we have happy customers, and products that fit every time. It may sound annel retentive but it works&#33;&#33; It just takes a little longer. :)

you guys want to make a column for a geo tracker? the factory "tilt" column only moves about 1" up and down... there is no tilt to it.

With the number of glass bodied CJ&#39;s out there I wonder if your company made a complete steering column kit with "factory" style brakets and associated parts that could be available for new glass projects and also for retrofits. The glass bodies that I have put together for customers rely on a donor vehicle for the original column and bracketry. these parts end up in the same place if done correctly so putting togther a new kit should be fairly straightfoward.

The brackets you reuse, are you refering to the black saddle that attaches to the column and dash? or the bracket that it connects to under the dash? We will have the locations on the column but not the black saddle. Can you take a pic of what you are refering too? we might be able to include other brackets also.

Well I&#39;m not sure on the YJ. I havent really looked at one yet. can you send me some pic&#39;s of the original and the dash. We make custom columns all the time. If it looks do-able we might get all the jeeps in one big swoop. send the pic&#39;s and I&#39;ll see what i can do. :idea:

This is what a stock, unmodified 72-75 column looks like. Its just a six bolt dash flange welded to a straight pipe that sticks through a hole in the floor. No plastic covers etc..., very simple and rather universal in design. The stainless you see is where the old Ross type steering column was prior to the 72-75 style retro fit. Happy hunting
