Ya know.. you realize just hwo much you know about a vehicle when you can glance at a pic with a bunch of random **** everywhere.. and manage to name every little peice at a glance as fast as your reading.. haha, not bad by the way.. that steering stabilizer reminds me that I need to get one for my own truck.. Im sick of those nasty pothole like bumps that jerk that wheel all over the damn place.

Looks good! Get some solvents and start cleaning them all up while you got some time on your hands! =)

Its still not a 1354M and I could have pulled one off a BII, but was told not to go with the 1350, Thanks though.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!! I got so lucky I found a guy in Tucson that had the axle and he wanted 1200, but also had everything else on the frame. I pulled the front crossmember, rear (front) leaf mounts, shock hoops, rock sliders, front driveshaft, 2" blocks, Custom shackles for 63" chevy's form ballistic fab, I think thats it.

If you look at rack and pinion, all I can see is one box feed with one wire from the power steering pump and a return line. All the rest is wired to the same rack and pinion set up. All i plan to do is pull th cv boot off the steering shaft and pull the pin out and attach it to the steering column(stock) too the steering box with the return line and pump line to the new steering box. The steering stabilizer is just mounted to the frame to help assist steering.

If this is not what you were asking I apologize, this seems like my logic to me, lol. I believe this is all i plan to do. If you know something I dont by all means correct me, please!

BTW Ill show you the truck its goin on. I only posted a couple pics before of my truck.

It'll look really nice! I have the same pinstriping! I've gotten most of it from down south of Tucson too, it's really bad down there!
