Xj and Mj seats mount differently it is not a bolt in you either have to move the studs on the floor or change the seat brackets.

some with automatics had 4.56......but you will definitly get a lower ratio than the 4.0's had. 4.10s are most common, but 3.73 and 4.56 are around

sorry didnt read far enough down lol

On the durango steering box upgrade...is there a certain year model or range that I should look for? Also is there any fabrication that needs to be done for this swap? Can i use my stock spacer that goes between the box and frame? Let me know! Thanks in advance.
