    Is the engine crossmember going to be an issue on this rig?

    I know some have problems on the '73 up - but ours are in a different spot...

    ....and thank YOU for the double-post! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif








    Seriously, it works fine. Even a straight draglink won't hit the crossmember on our trucks.... plenty of pics in my .sig

    Greg is exactly right (as usual /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif). I have been scoping out the clearance I'll need to do crossover and there is PLENTY of room. Piece o' cake!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Very slick - I took the steering shaft out of a newer 73 up 2wd drive - hoping that will work - it looks like it will be a direct swap with the 4x4 one... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
