well your 90 is plenty new
for us old truck owners we are generally stuck, unless we are going aftermarket, with a vintage similar to what we own.
the input shaft on the box differs.
from what I have seen all the boxes are equal.
if you are a part books god and can learn to mix n match steering internals anything is possible, a la AGR in the old days.
safest bet is to get one from a similar vintage to ensure the hydraulic fittings and input gear are compatible
would a 91 2wd sub box bolt up?
Just swap the output shaft. It is extemely easy. I installed a 2wd shaft in my '89 box with the box still in the truck. Be sure to adjust the backlash and replace the output seal though.
physically bolt to the frame? any box from 1973-199? when they discontinued the body style will bolt to the frame and could be made to work.
the details is where the fun begins. meaning hydraulic fittings and steering wheel input shaft variations must be looked into
1991? I would assume so, but someone else would have to answer as my junk is 1977 so I never looked that new.
