hey all, i know this is something im going to do, and these 2 points here, i never hear anything about or see much on and are quite critical...but how does it work on the steering say i go to a dana 60 or even 44 up front?... it it just a matter of buyin more tubing welding on ends and your go?(i dunno at all... and drive shafts...for some reason i doubt my shafts ujoints would fix a d60s yoke would it???... or does my shaft have to be cut and mated with one that would fit a d60?... any insight id greatly appreciate it?...

BU....as far as the driveshaft goes there are a couple of ways to go....you could use a 3/4 or 1 ton slip yoke on the driveshaft and use the u-joint for that d-shaft to yoke. Also...you can use a combination u-joint to go from Jeep to GM or whatever it is you are using for an axle yoke. I've done it both ways and when I blew one, I always had the other to fall back on. As far as the combination joint, they are alot more $$$ than a regular joint and sometimes not as easy to find :2thumup:
As far as the steering goes, that depends on what axle you end up with. Cross over steering for a D60 is alot easier than made out to be. D44 is a little more difficult and expensive to do. When you decide on what axle your going to run, we'll se what to do to help you out.
