If you already have the Currie steering here is what I would do. This way will cost you about 400-500 less than buying the whole kit from Blaine.

Buy the kit from polyperformance and switch out the cylinder for a 1.5", 6" bore cylinder (just called them up and they switched it out with no problem and made the kit cheaper)
http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...l#.UoFvAvmshcY

also need the cooler which is also cheaper from PP

Axle side mount:

Drag link mount:

Then you also need the mis-alignment spacers for the cylinder that are not on that kit.

You can also just drop the cylinder from the PP kit and not have to worry about modifying the cylinder like I had to and order it from BMB:

Also, before you install check to make sure all of your fittings fit together. PSC sent me a reservoir that was improperly tapped and the fitting wouldn't screw in it.

You can read about the install on my build thread starting on post #80

Thanks G, I just read through your build and the steering install. Sweet rig you have there, love the cage. Appreciate you efforts, I have some other stuff I need from Poly so that will work out great. Thanks again

Making progress, decided to scrap the Poly Baja Basket (its for sale if you know anyone interested). Toby drew up some baskets in Solid works, post some pics of those soon. Here are a couple of pics of the cab cage and bed cage, the cage passes through the cab just need to figure out a way to seal that area. GR8TOPS makes some rubber grommets but they are for the stock cage which is 2.25.

cage looks great man. I am suprised however with the style cage you decided on since it now takes away from the truck look.

How does that baja bin mount? I may be interested.

Also the gopro's, which models are they?

Lu it came down to storage, as much as I liked the clean look of the half cab and nothing in the bed I had a huge amount of wasted space. My buddy is building a basket that will cover the entire bed and tied into the cage, the upper hoop will also have a basket. Its going to look a bit strange fully loaded but I will have plenty of room for all the spare crap I seem to haul around...

For now my spare fits in the bed perfectly so thats where its living. Here is a link to the Poly Performance basket I'm selling, its made to mount in the back of any TJ. I do not have the mounts but they can be purchased from Poly.

http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...t-p-18614.html

I have one GoPro left, they are Hero 3 Black editions. You can have it for $175 if you want.

I will take some profile shots tonight, I was torn on the upper basket. If I would have ditched it I could have had the D pillars come at a 45 degree angle where they exited the cab, would have looked really clean and kept the pickup look. As much as I wanted to do that, storage took priority. The upper basket will almost always have nothing but wood in it. When I am in the backcountry I like a fire, and I am not talking your average fire....

Here are a couple of profile shots, Ballistic is building the baskets should have them next week. Going to weld them to the cage, figure out some mounts for my spare rear driveshaft and other necessities...then pull it and have it powder coated. Toby at XXX Traction cut the base plates off the Genright Pillars and welded a stout piece of metal to the floorboard with some nutserts. I am also really digging the A pillar spreader, it allows easy access to the sPOD and will provide a place to mount my CB and my shotgun
