I looked though my build page on facebook and I only can find the size comparison between boxes photo. I can take some in the light tomorrow the only bit*ch is trying to pull the durango pitman arm off to put the stock jeep one on.. Torc and heat makes it pretty much blow up but it comes off..
but if you look for one remember that a PLOW durango steering will give you steering stops to were a normal box will let you keep your regular steering radius just with a HUGE difference especially with big tires.

My mom lives in Rooseville and I see one similar to yours every time I leave her neighborhood. You live off 13/Hayes by chance?

Waiting to see how long it takes til you start with a motor swap. You know it's comin! Looks good tho!

(And don't forget to post that tattoo pic in the tattoo thread in the pub! Very cool )
