Packaging the front end has been a major PITA, especially with limited time to work on it. Now to swap the pvc track bar out for a real one with a bend to clear the diff and some frame clearancing.

The track bar and drag link are 36.5" long and run up hill at 5* at full stuff. Ride height is 7" lower and the track bar runs down hill 6*. Steering box is from a Wagoneer, the pitman arm is from an astro van with the splines cut to allow us to index it for the Wag box.

I am hoping this is the biggest head ache of the build. Trying to package the steering box and the baggage it brings has been the biggest obstacle I've had in the last few builds.
