Mine was hole. His standard hole is 5/8 so decide that when you order heims since you can get 5/8 heims.

Todd,
Are you going with the same ram as Phil? Are you using the same hi-steer arms as Phil? I have Phils bracketry design saved, so if the above things are the same I think I should be able to hook you up when I get the CNC plasma going...

I may have an issue to work out with that, my arms are the short ones phils are the longer ones for a high steer crossover setup. im waiting on ubolts and spring plate, should be here in a day or two. Then i can see how it will all work as far as clearance with the leaf springs. If i can run the tie rods above the leafs or i have to send back the short arms and get the longer ones.

Well Todd's working on converting his AC to NON AC due to clearance from narrowing the truck.

Old AC Box


Making a Hybrid Box











Winch Mount is in.





The D60 Went in when we got our U bolts , and Spring Plates From Dan @ Ruffstuff. Problem is we forgot we need to chase the threads in the axle since they look bad. So He needs a tap , and he is going to drill , and tap a third bolt hole for another bolt for added rigidity. Looks like we are going to put Crossover in for the time being to have it mobile , and can plan the ram, and hydro a little better. Since you run into more issues with the leaf spring setup.
