Stock steering with no drop pitman arm but its really taking a toll on it. I have a drop pitman arm on the way. Iv run the Ruddge Ridge before and liked it but a lot of people dont.

Im unsure of what im doing with my front axle yet so when I figure out what im gonna run i will know what im doing for steering

I needed a place to put my tranny temp gauge since I tow my boat with the jeep and still want a clean look. Im not one to just hack something up and stick something somewhere. Now later when its a trailer queen, I wont care but while its my DD i want it to look as good as it can.

yeah you don't have to hack anything. I took the ash tray out and put a B&M gauge in there. Super clean too. What other gauges do you need??

That wouldnt be a bad place for it, but I use mine to keep my change in. Also not wanting to get rid of the VIC just because i use it. I wanted the gauges where i dont have to look far for. Im gonna be running Tranny Temp and Air/fuel gauge.
