I’ve stripped the front axle out and removed all the brackets, getting ready to put the 3 link in. I’m toying with pushing my steering box forward a few two inches. Looks like I just need to clearance the body mount and trim some of the back of the inner grille. Locate and make the new holes. Any advice or words of wisdom on this process?

Rebuilding my D20 and hopefully getting the engine and trans cleaned up to install in my frame. I'd also like to get my shocks installed if my spacers show up today. And I still need to order my new gears and flares. And maybe my new tires... (This frame off thing is getting waaaay to expensive:-X )
Are you adding the J&B shift rails to the Dana 20
I did and really have enjoyed the ability to put just the front diff in for a dig to turn
( note to self ) easy on the front only in reverse

Got the explorer serp swap mostly finished up last night and going to get it out on the road today because as Captain Ron said, "if anything is going to happen, it's going to happen out there."

Solved the problem with the stereo not working but then decided to tackle the tachometer not lighting up. I have power to the lead for lighting, power at the base where the bulb goes but still no light. Grrr....

Hinmaton- slide that box as far as you can forward. Notch the bottom out of the grill out so you can gain as much clearance as possible. Body mounts are easy to mod so you can get the box fwd. If you are going FW on that axle you can move it forward a long ways before hitting any headlights or sheetmetal. Other issues but if you're 3 linking it you'll figure those out no problem. Looking good

Kbpony sent me a photo of his mirrors. They look pretty cool but vibrate a little at high speeds.
But there maybe an explanation. It looks like he has eliminated the wing vent windows. If I recall correctly the piece that there are mounted to are not considered “structural”

He cut off a lower bracket. If you install the lower bracket I’m sure it will be more stable.

Some people have used that same wing vent window eliminating kit to install Jeep mirrors, so there’s a decent chance it’s strong enough for mirror mounting. I can’t tell for sure.

Good point.
