    Im trying to get an idea of my options for crossover steering. I have a 10 bolt front, and I thought I could run some ideas past everyone.

    Does anyone keep the stock steering box and just turn the pitman arm 45 degrees clockwise so that its working in a lateral (side to side) motion, then use that for crossover?

    Also, would you really need to get "flat top" D44 knuckles for a ten bolt, then machine it out and run a steering arm, or could you simply use the tie rod arm on the passenger side?

    Take this one and run with it... just brainstorming.

    well 1 main problem with your gear box idea is there is a flat spot on it so it can only go on 1 way but i have heard you cnge just change out the gear with out having to do the whole box s
    and your crossbar idea i have a freind here that has it so i guess it must work looks kinda cool also
    well thats it from here
