I wouldn’t worry too much about 6 shooters till you put hydro assist or full hydro steering on. I would for sure beef up the knuckle balls to the housing with a brace kit. They always bend in that necked down area. Get yourself a set of marlin crawler inner axle seals or ones from Yukon. They use a steel band around the seal instead of a spring, double lipped and stiffer material. Keeps the fucker from leaking oil into the birfields and destroying the grease packed in there

Nice my first truck I was driving was a stock 1983 toyota pickup. No power steering and 31" tires sucked but made me learn to drive stick and muscle it around the corners.

Notice any problems having the filler neck cut down like that? Been thinking about making mine similar vs. running it out to the glass bedside.
