Honestly probably not for a while. I dont have problem with the stock style. Plus I need to buy a new 3rd n axles
You say that, but....

then your stock steering breaks on the street in Anza Borrego from fatigue and you're left using 3 pairs of sunglasses, 7016 rod, a 1" bolt, and a prison welder to fix your truck in the middle of BFE. It's not safe to run stock steering for too long.

^^^ have to admit.. I was expecting waaaay more bump steer in those full droop photos with that stock steering!!

And yea.... having steering fail would be scary and potentially way more expensive!!

A nice interim solution is that e350 or ambulance steering that SteveyBoy went with. Not as full kill as swing steering, but get's you a hell of a lot safer setup than the stock stuff.

If you do your own fab you can build a swing steer setup for roughly $500 yourself in materials.

I'm paranoid enough that I'm stepping up to a Howe pump/box/ram on mine this summer if not sooner. I'll have to see what's left in the budget after my motor build and trans service here in Jan to decide if I have the pennies to go with the steering or roll the dice for the last part of the desert season before stepping up. I'm REALLY hoping to do the full steering and a full floater on mine before next desert season. My current goal is to simply have mine running for the last few months of this season!
