    Stephen, I will be installing your crossover steering kit for a dana 60 and was wondering how much the crossmember will have to be trimmed back. I have already built a crossmember out of 2x2x1/4" square tubing and mounted it to the front side of the motor mount bracket's. But now I am thinking that I should have built them to go inside of the brackets. Will 2" from the front of the mounts be enough, or do I need to build it again?

    You'll just have to get it in there and see. Typically a stock crossmember needs very little trimming, usually on the corners only.
