jey could care less about whos bigger. he built his truck for rocks, meaning low and articulation. being tall is a disadvantage in his ways of offroading.

Hey Jey I have a question about his steering set up...

It appears that you only used the hi-steer arm on the passenger side, then for the tierods just used the stock steering hookup location on the knuckle... is this right? if so, if one wanted to save money could they just buy a passenger flat top knuckle to run this setup instead of running two?

1.Forget the bumper, I'm not getting one.
2.I need only 1 fender
3.I have a Ranger bed that is primered & needs paint & the rear needs more lift.

he hasnt gotten the studs for th edriver side knuckle to run the hi steer arm on that side yet.

yes you can run it that way. it really ssaves on your steering link from becomin a ugly/weak "z" link to reach the stock mounting location. If your not gonna be crawling on alot of big rocks, then id run what B is. if your gonna do alot like jey, then id run full hi steer to reduce the risk of beating up the tie rod.

I haven't had a bumper in 3 years...

If I get any kind of bumper, it's not going to be a stock one.
