If it does I am definitely going to do it as I drive on road a lot, also post as much as your able to in pics and info if you don't mind, just curious as to what's all needed .... I am guessing that flipping the drag link and tie rod must also be done for this to function properly as oppose to just using the Iron Rock drop pitman arm?

Awesome jeep by the way...
