    ok guys, the next thing on my list is to get the burb lincon locked in the rear. After that I want to do the disk brake conversion.. After that, there's several options:

    Beadlocks (either DIY, or try to find recentered h1's)

    crossover steering

    WFO concepts DOM tie rod

    high lift jack

    electric air compressor

    heavy duty diff cover for 14ff

    very simple cage made from HREW

    What order should the above go in?

    Hi Lift #1
    I'd save the crossover project for your Dana 60.
    I wouldn't use an electric compressor, definitely go York.
    Big tie rods are always good, and should mostly swap over to your Dana 60.
    The rest you can just do when you feel like it, or can afford it.

    1. Cage
    2. Hi-lift
    3. HD Cover
    4. HD tierod
    5. Crossover
    6. Beadlocks
    7. Compressor

    I personally think Cage should be #1. Safety should be #1 priority. Everything else comes afterword. I wouldn't do crossover or hd tierod until the D60 is ready if it will be ready soon. The HD tierod would have to be shortened and the draglink would be shorter also I believe. The knuckles and steering arm would be useless except to resell for used prices.

    I agree with some of the suggestions if you are going to go D 60 keep your crossover conversion on the half/ three quarter ton stuff as cheap as you can.

    Jack, get you out of many situations and stucks.
    Crosover.
    Beadlocks, aired down tyres will get you out of a lot of trouble too.
    Compressor to air up!
    Cage, as now you can get out of trouble you may push your luck a bit more.
    Tie rod as you're getting intpo trickier situations.
    Diff cover for same reason!
