That's funny I was just looking at that pump  I sold one to customer for a 99 Cherokee after he left I took the pump out to see it it would fit my TC bracket and it did so I bought it so I could do the same thing next week

that pump fits 1996 - 2001 Cherokee 1997 - 2003 TJ 1997 - 2003 Wrangler
there is a pump that is the same for the grand but the reservoir is bigger and has a third line for the return from the Hydraulic radiator fan

if anyone couldn't find one at a local wrecking yard the cardone # is 20-38771

I noticed the one on my wife's 97 XJ was the same...if I had known that it was going to get totalled, I wouldn't have bought that one from the wrecking yard  ::)

RHodge, thanks for the interchange info; I just posted the year of the vehicle that I got it out of and didn't bother trying to figure out what other years/models would work.  Sounds like you have better resources than I do. 
Any idea what years the remote reservoir pump was offered?  The # for that one is 20-813 and I saw one in a 1995 Wrangler with the 4.0L.  I may use one of those on my Unimooki if I can't make the stock zuk pump work...

It looks like it only fits the 95 wrangler

Do later IFS boxes work? I have access to a 1992 4runner power steering setup.

The '90-95 4runner box is very similar to the '86-88 pickup box (same sector shaft splines, same input shaft splines, and same frame bolt pattern).  I've never ported one of these boxes for hydro assist so I don't know how to go about doing that (or if it is possible), but it should work fine in your rig instead of the earlier box.

Like RHodge said, anything is possible.  The toy boxes are a good fit for the samurai because of their size and availability of aftermarket parts (rod ends, pitman arms, etc.), but there's no reason something else can't be used.  BUT, it is important to do idiot checks before you start a project like this...things like making sure the sector shaft turns the correct direction for your planned application (it would suck to find out that your rig turns left when you turn the steering wheel to the right), the pitman arm points in the right direction, or the sector shaft isn't keyed in a way that prevents moving the pitman arm, you have enough general room to fit the box in the planned location, etc.
