hopefully it doesn't fail, the Barns kit uses a 1" bolt through the OEM hole.  it moves the tie rod out for diff cover clearance, keeps the Ram push point same place.  with ~50* steering i use exactly 8" of Ram travel.   


lathe extension worked great today to machining the 53" tie rod.  just have to take care with squaring it up a little bit more than usual but not a big deal.

need to start populating control locations before finishing up tube work. 

1550 shafts came, ordered coolers to get rad pack and charge pipes finalized. 

pretty close to plumbing things and wires soon.
