manual steering

I've got a 1998 Nissan Frontier and I'd like to convert it to manual steering. Has anybody done this and if so how? I called the dealer but they say the Frontier only came with power steering. Is there a drop-in manual steering box that will fit my truck? Thanks for any help.

Pull off your power steering belt. I had a 91 hardbody with manual and it sucked, any particular reason you want to ditch the power steering?
Wow brother, 40 mpg is a big goal!! Have you thought about buying a car thats a little easier on the gas? I have a buddy who took off his power steering belt to try and free up horsepower when he autocrosses and his car is a big pain in the *&$ to drive. I'm all for better gas mileage and sticking it to the suadi's but you want to be able to enjoy driving your truck. Good luck with the goal and keep us up to date on your progress!
