WJ knuckle conversion

hello JF,
I've tried to search but to no avail. What is needed to do the WJ knuckle conversion? Anybody have pics of this done? Sorry if I'm beating this topic up I can't seem to get any results. Maybe a linky to a thready? Thanks

The WJ knuckles allow for cross over steering. If the 1ton conversion you have is long enough (appears to me most are) it will work.
