Mine is kind of hacked together right now with spare parts, but if you go back in this thread you can see where we made my stock column into a saggy style column. Works VERY well other then the joint we used from the steering shaft I had laying around is a little too big and 'barely' rubs the brake pedal when braking and going around a corner. I am skinny enough I don't need a tilt column though. If I could find a stock looking wheel to put on a tilt column I would probably go that route though as my goal is to have it look somewhat stockish because I want the Navy Markings on it. I have been trying to do only pre-70's type mods. Stuff you would see on a jeep that has been used all it's life.
I want to get a second 2A/3A/3B to keep stock aside from a megasquirt or something, OD and street friendly axle gearing. Though a 4.3L one would be desireable to me as well. I hate newer vehicles, no character, and too much crap that isn't needed. Too much safety BS on them. I enjoy driving both my jeeps, The newer cars I drive, none 'do it' for me.
