    Go with the cross over , this will help if you want to build your own

    Or you can purchase the steering arm

    To do it yourself ...
    sector shaft out of a 2WD steering box onto your box
    pitman arm out of a jeep , and drag link
    make your own steering arm (1" plate) and use a hiem joint or have a tre. taper put in it
    be ready to spend a lot of time fabbing it all up

    Personally I prefer to build my own stuff , it's a lot more fun that way :grin:

    If your strapped for cash and want hyrdo assist eventually or highsteer make sure you buy the highsteer arm with two holes so you can buy the driver side arm when you have the cash to relocate your tie rod.

    so for now get a passenger side highsteer arm
    a superlift #1104 pitman arm
    a 2wd sector shaft
    a crossover draglink
    some draglink ends and your ready to go


    by the way I used Offroaddesign.com for my steering link, ends, and arm.
    sector shaft from a junkyard.
