Well I found the downfall of the beefy tierod/drag link, you have to take it all apart to adjust the alignment.

Im toe in right now but I'm just going to wait for my ball joints and c-bushings to come in and tackle it all at once. That will be fun, blah.

I also ordered the rest of the pieces to complete the family style cage. That will be for spring time.

Changed out door handles inside and out, also changed out the door locks. Didn't have a key to the old ones and had to depend on the keyless entry.

New shifter knob came in. Looks good but the threads were too small. Had to drill them out and re-tap them to 7/16 instead of 3/8. 3/8 was the only option for T-18 so maybe it has a different shifter than what was originally on it. Not sure.

I see that you have the twin stick transfer case, did you have the t or j shift? Sounds like you have the J. In the process of converting the Dana 20 into a twin right now.

It has the T shift. 73 came stock with J shift but it was swapped out by the previous owner.

My dad and I are building a 67. We have a very similar set up as you. (Can't really vary looks on these trucks). Lol.

Thanks. I believe I'm going to go ahead and look into bumpers. I have found some I like but debating on going with a winch bumper or not.

Black and white pic for now.

Me either. They are just homemade ones. I would get plate bumpers and to get ones that are made for a 2" body lift as well.

The impact bumpers look nice from toms
