    I am almost done with the crossover and I see that the big nut that holds the draglink on did not make it from the junkyard. Instead of taking the whole box down to the hardware store, does anybody know what the specs are on this? Thanks.

    Should use the same nut as on your 4wd box. Not sure of the exact size though. I had to use the one off my 4wd box when I did my crossover.

    My 4wd box did not have the nut. the arm itself clamped onto the shaft.

    Your right, damn what was I thinking!! I know I pulled the nut off another box. Heck when I was finishing mine up I got in such a rush because of making it to the Carlisle truck show. Must be a foggy brain New Years Day thing. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I think I'll go back to bed and start this year over again. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    If you find out, let me know.
    I've searched and no one seems to know - they just put on the used nut from the 2wd box.

    I've got several good used ones at the shop. If you need one just give me a call and we'll send you one. It will just cost you the shipping.
