I *really* would try to swing the shaft, box, mount, pitman and flip in one shot even if it means waiting a little longer to do the install...it'll make life much simpler. Should be able to find a used stock pitman cheap if you don't still have yours and I can lend you the reamer for the Rock Equipment flip. Your job will go something like this: unbolt the shaft from the steering column, disconnect the hoses and drag link from the steering box, unbolt the bracket from the frame, yank the whole deal out in one shot, bolt your new stuff in place (I'd recommend new TRE's)...you don't have to fight with the stock shaft as much and worry about the rag joint breaking when you're trying to remove the shaft from the stock box to put it on the new one. Check the vendor section over at pirate4x4.com...there's usually a vendor like PORC that has PSC stuff at reduced prices and you may find some other items there too like the shaft. I *very* rarely pay full retail for any of the stuff that I buy new and I buy used whenever possible/plausible.
