    Great guy to call and talk to. He offered me the kit without draglink ends if I wanted for $270, or $300 for a complete crossover steering kit for D60. BDS pitman arm, his drag link from 1 1/4" .250 wall DOM, 1" ends, and his steering arm complete with studs. Seemed like a great value to me for the kit, I can't wait to get it!!!

    I was bs'in with him on the phone. I told him that he should offer member discounts, but his prices are already way better than anyone else's, and he mentioned that to me and said discount or not, nobody is going to out sell him.

    I can't wait to get them, this is one of those kinds of upgrades I get really exited about, as its potentially a drastic change.

    You have to use a 2wd sector shaft from a steering box, yes. That's the only way to crossover.

    I got two boxes from my buddy for $20 so I'm going to run one. The other is donating its shaft to my WTO hydro ram equipped box when I get my ram, which will hopefully be soon.

    I want to get my '60 in for now, so the crossover setup and a temporary used steering box are going in for now.
