Looks awesome. The only problem I see is that you let a Jeep roll on to your tire. It should have been the other way round.

3 CAT scans a MRI and some time with the shrink and it's comfirmed. I'm just not right in the head.

Very awesome looking and great pics. After seeing some good top views of it, I almost think you should call it "the rolling coffin," or something like that.

Thanks for the comment...  I got the flanges from High Angle Driveline.  Pretty reasonable about $100 each.  As for the steering.  Im not sure about a kit?  I just did the weld in bungs and Chevy 1ton TR ends.  Are you building a Tacoma?
