    10 bolt front axle with D44 knuckles for crossover steering. I am also running D44 caliper brackets and D44 hubs.

    Re: I can turn Left!!!

    Nope, I wish it was that easy. There is a tech article about crossover in the technical area of this site. You need:

    crossover steering arm
    flattop knuckles w/passengers side drilled and taped for steering arm
    draglink with tie rod ends
    2wd sector shaft
    Superlift #1104 steering arm
    weld on frame reinforcement kit for the steering box

    You're going to be so amazed the first time you use it on the trail. I should slap myself for not doing this mod four years ago.

    Works great sofar. I have only had it on the street though. I have a noticeably better turning response then I did with the raised steering arm w/ stock steering.

    Hopefully next weekend I will get to test it out on some trails.

    ***Update***

    I got to wheel today with the crossover installed. Crossover is the SH!T. Being able to steer when you are like this

    is awesome. Prior I would have had no shot in hell at steering left flexed out like this. Now it is easy. Crossover makes a WORLD of difference on the trail. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I love my new crossover too. I was amazed how much easier the D60 and 35's turned compared to the 10 bolt, stock steering setup and 31's. Don't even have hydro assist steering hooked up yet

    I love my crossover all except that it rubs my springs and crossmember pretty hard and that I need hydroassist cause i have a hard time turning on pavement when im stopped, much less turn off road with 15 PSI of air in the tires with the front locked in

    I just wish I could get my power steering to stop hating me and then I'd be all set.

    Something about big tires, a locker, and a V belt just don't agree with each other.
