I have been emailing Dave Christiensen!!!! He keeps telling me 2 weeks... yet again. I called yesterday. This guy just seems way to overwhelmed.

Trail gear knows whats up though. I ordered my shock hoops at 11am and they were here at 2pm the next day.

Ill just wait, already been waiting 2 months, truck hasnt moved in a year, so whats another 2 weeks.

He is shipping the parts today, cept for the dana 60 hardware, which he dont have. So atleast i can get a start on the steering. Hopefully by hardware he is talking about the studs. He is super freaking vague in his emails.

Studs are still on backorder. He said he would send them when he gets them. But for now, this will allow me to get my steering started.

Havent really updated this **** at all.

So i have the powersteering lines.
Brake lines will be here on Wed, or Thurs. got a great deal on some Russell Dot approved 42" braklines

I just need the bolts to hold the steering box on and it will be mounted. the sleeves and plates are already welded to frame and painted. Just need bolts.

I made a thread on steering shafts, im completly ****ed on that right now.

Should be ordering rear gears, u-joint, and 1350 yoke soon. then bleed the brakes, and finish the draglink.

He is 4x4 so if you have a spindle lift you are 2wd. Meaning they are not the same ones.

SO..

The brakes are done, front and rear. Just need to be bled.
Powersteering is hooked up. Needs to be bled as well

rear 5.38's were ordered, along with the master install kit, a 1330-1350 u joint, and a 14 bolt 1350 yoke.

Need to build the draglink, and install steering shaft.

Most likely gonna have to get the dshaft chopped, but ill cross that river when i get there.
