got the propane regulator mounted, fuse box mounted, and got it running last night. Today's goal is to get the wiring taped back up and secured. Then front drive shaft and put the doors back on, oh and trim the hood.

Now I have to decide if I want a GM dana 60 or build a steering 14 bolt. I'm kinda leaning towards a 14b just for the strength, and alittle for the cool factor.

I vote 14b
Idk how much shafts are but it probably wouldn't be much more $ to build

It can't be that much
Idk I haven't priced out a set of shafts for it
But you could probably build the housing for like 3-500 Bucks
