    brad, i still think it would look better on my 1 ton!!!

    it still looks really weird. did you ever measure your turning radius with just the cross-over? it will be interesting to see what it does now....lol.

    it was no problem helping, even though i thought i was gonna get smashed undewr the truck a few times...lol. i know you'll help with my rear disks when i go to do it.

    later, todd

    This is way cool! I have some questions, if you don't mind.

    What do you think your total cost is?
    What are those little doodads between the ram rod and the tie rod?
    In the first picture it looks like a shaft running throught the entire axle, what's the story there?

    Man, I wish I could have been there to help, and learn something! This is awesome dude!!!

    Saaaawwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttt.

    I am gathering parts to do a 14 bolt rear steer for my crew cab. What are you using to control the rear steer from inside the cab? I am debating between a side to side valve or a small wheel &amp; Valve from a stand up fork lift.

    That bar is for setting up the knuckles on the same plane so you don't have issues w/ bearings and shafts.
