    Replace sector shaft bearing
    Build retainer for lower sector shaft
    Replace tie rod ends
    Remove passenger side front spring, pull inner spring shins and replace bushings

    Cut front cross member and brace to eliminate interference
    Replace axle shafts and ball joints

    Sell yourself on the street corner. Stop making excuses for not being there

    Bring your truck in 2020!! That needs to be your slogan. Trailer it, drive it, ship it, etc. just get it there for us to see and YOU to use it!
    You built it right. Don’t second guess, just do! :waytogo:

    It seems about every other year the truck comes with me. I just don't feel comfortable driving it that far, not saying it can't do it I just don't want to.

    Well even though I have a great tow truck my goal is to have a driver, that can go anywhere.
    The only reason I would consider towing is if I want to travel in my big rig as an rv and have my suburban for local trail rides where we stop.
    But I prefer overland trips the most.
