I think if you watch the Michael Cox video of his bronco he shows the setup Barge is talking about.

I think. He mentions who built it, but I forget that too.

Also here is how I mocked it up to adjust location to get no bumpsteer. Slotted holes in the tabs to adjust height on swingers and the connecting rod lengths to move them in/out as needed. Cycled it many many times to get the location perfect.

And I was sucking at taking videos of the truck mounting the motor trans etc but I'm going back and making new videos describing what I did and showing that to make the next video hopefully tomorrow.

Thanks.

OK no photos but spent half the day making some inner fender covers for a guy with a winch bumper to fill in a hole since he had to cut the inner fender up to match bumper.

ALSO i machined some tubing and starting making the mount for the PS box as well.. Now should I mount the box so the pitman arm is flat or at a slight angle doesn't matter since it will have heims connecting it to the tie rod between the swingers?

Theoretically, if the swinger the pitman connects to is much lower than the pitman, a slight angle will reduce the amount of upward and downward deflection the pitman experiences. If the pitman end and swinger are about level than level is fine.

Practically speaking if the box is a quality unit and is ram assisted it probably makes no difference.
