It's actually going to be getting a modified JCR 1 ton steering, so the drag link doesnt go all the way across to the other high steer! These pics will help ya haha

I did some more tinkering and measuring today, I've figured out where I'm gunna be drilling the holes. Tie rod hole is going to be about 6.25" from the kingpin. It'll give full range of motion, AND let us keep the current pitman arm by sucking the tie rod back a little. Unfortunately I need to notch the axle side track bar bracket to make the tie rod fit. But it's definately better than hunting down a pitman arm, hoping it'll work, and possibly moving the steering box forwards lol!

Tight little arrangement here.


The drag link and track bar are actually going to go above parallel by a little bit at full bump!

Haha yeah I might not have gotten completely down to bare metal, but it's burned in deeeeep, and is also being burned in from the back, nothin to worry about.

Here's the money shot. All the work I've been doing has finally paid off. I think this looks SICK!
