my buddy is building 60s for his jeep so he asked if I wanted to buy his currie steering. So I now have currie steering for 200$ its slightly used but its BEEF. I have never read one bad review on it either. Oh and today is my birthday so ill have more jeep parts soon..well not as much as I hoped because I just bought a new snap-on tool box for work.

Happy birthday man.


I'd like to see more of this front shock setup. Shouldn't the 2.5" RC's unseat with a 12" shock?

Welded in new tabs for my sway bars, tie rod flip would have hit.

Yea I know. That's why I said I thought the 2.5 would unseat with a 12 and definitely a 14. Did you just move your mounts and bump for the shock and spring to cooperate?

Not bad. Are your front shock mounts just F250 towers cut and welded on the stock mount?

I've always liked this Jeep. Did you post it on classifides a while back, for some reason I thought I saw it for sale. I was just reading through your thread and saw you had Chron's, my best friend that helps me work on my Jeep has Chron's too. He is going to school to be a gastroenterologist with hopes of finding a cure one day. Anyways, nice Jeep.
