ive been doing some really cool upgrades this year.
ive been breaking my tail to try to be able to play with the big boys, and im actually starting to get somewhere.


TMI (total metal innovations) beadlock kit. upgraded to the thickest size


bought a tow rig


bought a D60 finally


installed the D60


bought high steer arms, was able to reuse most of the crossover kit from the D44.


built a ram bracket for hydro assist
installed a diy4x tapped end cap for my box
tapped the sector shaft cap myself

currently i am waiting for my remote reservoir to arrive
my friend at work is turning an adapter that will snug fit into the filler neck of the OEM steering pump with a threaded hole for a fitting.
im ordering a remote oil filter to use in the steering system, and have already plumbed a small cooler.
still contemplating plumbing a temp sensor and gauge.

its been down since march.

i had my friend in the lathe dept at work turn this adapter for me.
its got a snug fit into the filler neck of the power steering pump and a 1/2" NPT threaded hole.
the whole cheese will have a piece of gas filler hose over the top of it and clamped together to hold it in place.
i designed the adapter to fit snugly inside the neck and the outer section to be the same O.D. as the filler neck so the connection hose will fit good


the threaded hole will have a fitting that will end up coupling the remote reservoir
