Yeah Mike. Surprisingly smooth! Haha, I got home from work and the pitman arm was here. Then I walked onto the deck and my ORO LiteDOT replacements came in and yesterday the steering box came in. It was just meant to be. The alignment is dead nuts, and the steering is almost scary responsive! Im so happy right now, but I gotta get some Sleep Andrew (mgtsldr) and I are going to fab some rockers for his Jeep out of some scrap to se what we can come up with. I'll post pics tomorrow of the progress, haha.

I saw your jeep Late tonight on Robinson lane like 23:30, Glad you did it correct. I was probably the first one you would have hit going the other direction

That's the part why I have not done it yet. A tighter ratio, combined with the shorter wheelbase than a Durango, then add my Grant 13" steering wheel? A sneeze is a lane change. They do make a wider ratio Durango box, but I have to remember how to find it.

Haha, yeah Sadass thankfully it all went well!

Don, I believe if you get the snowplow option on a Dodge Durango box the turning ratio is the same as a factory Jeep box. I did a lot of readon after the meeting on Monday night, before I ordered the box. The Currie HD steering I installed also added to the solid steering feel.

Glad it worked out James, that is a killer deal! They look good on there for sure, I would love me some half doors.

Here is what I did yesterday with Andrew. We took some poser shots and I welded up a few pieces of scrap steel for free rocker guards to test on the YJ. In a couple weeks we will probably do some for mine. No pics of the rockers, he has them. But here are a couple pics of my flexing on his 39's and him flexing on my 35's haha.

$75.00 for half doors is a hell of a deal, they look great.
