I am going SOA on the new YJ. I am using most of my parts from the old SUA YJ. I like the BTF steering bracket as it looks bretty beefy and I like the idea of the rod ends being in a double sheer mount.
I already have HD tierod and drag link with rod ends from BulletProofSteering.com and have used it on my DD for 3 years with out any issues or signs of wear. When I installed it, I had to drill the knuckles and pitman arm to 3/4" to accept the bolts in the new steering.
As I want to keep everything the same, I want to drill the BTF bracket to 3/4" as well. For those of you that have this bracket or have first hand knowledge of it, is there enough material to safely drill it to 3/4" without sacrificing the integrity of it? If I read right, BTF has it drilled to 5/8", so it would only need to go 1/8" larger.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
