    I lookedat the tech section for the crossover steering mod, but my K10 has a crossmember in the front that looks nothing like one in the tech article. It looks more like an upside down U. Will I be able to do the crossover without modifying it? I'll have to find my digi camera and see if I can get a pick up.

    You will be fine as long as you have enough lift. Usually 4" or more.
    That is the stock crossmember.

    The tech article uses a straight draglink. You will have to use the bent style offered by everybody that makes x-over stuff, and you'll be fine with the stock engine crossmember.

    Yup! I have the WFO x-over draglink and it works great with my 52" front

    good deal. I was planning on using the 56" rears I have up front, hence the need for crossover steering. I have a set of 64" for the rear but not sure if I want to swap the in. Might just stick with the 56" rears and do a shackle flip. I'm looking for 4-6" of lift overall. And since I'm getting a little bit of body cancer I am going to trim the fenders a little. Thanks all.
