Default Heavy Duty Steering Box?

So my 97 Ram 1500 is having a steering box issue,,,Needs replacement.... Is there a newer version of the box I can replace it with?
With my lift and larger tires I would imaging that it is putting alot of undue stress on the box. New ones from the local part stores are around 200 bucks. That is for a factory replacement. Its not the cost that worries me but I want one that can handle the extra stresses.

Use a box for a larger vehicle, and modify the truck to accept it. Problem solved.
