    Here is a pic of the new install. Everything is completely adjustable thanks to MOO.

    Notice the MOO D60 Axle Mount?

    Looks good, so how do you like the setup sp far? I am planning to do the redneck ram too. Did you use their rebuilt 2wd box or did you use the AGR box? Also, I like those MOO mounts.

    Thanks.
    I love the setup so far. It seems to do a better job than my two steering stabalizers did, plus with the 1.5" diameter ram, it turns as fast as before and I did no modifications to my factory pump. I used the rebuilt box from WTO. I did add a power steering cooler.

    He makes the Rock Rod (tie rod) mount as needed, but had the axle mount in stock. The axle mount is the same mount he uses for the 14 bolt axle guard, the axle tube is 3" in diameter. He sent them to me without the tabs so I could weld on my own. He will weld the tabs if needed.

    I hide the duct tape, and bailing wire good huh?
    Are you talking about the ram rod? I think it's 1/2" diameter. It may look small next to my 1.5" diameter Rock Rod. I think he also has one with a 5/8" diameter rod. But it has 1.875" diameter ram. He basically said that would negatively effect the street manners. ie; slower steering response, the need to modify the pump, bigger ps fluid reservoir.

    that's hilarious, but you didn't have to do all that /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
    it does work though, along with many hose clamps.

    Yep, havin' lots of fun, trying to get the blazer to fit on a "jeep" trail /forums/images/icons/smile.gif It was a 4/5 trail, and I expected to get some damage, but not the whole door /forums/images/icons/frown.gif I'm going to pull the worst of it out, and leave the rest. Next time I'm just taking the doors off.
