We did some more trading and got a Toyota IFS box and two pumps, brackets and reservoirs to put power steering on. I don't have the heims or material to build a drag link yet but we are going to get the box and pump mounted up this weekend.

We didn't get the hydro assist done, but we did get the box and pump mounted. We need to go through and replace the hoses and mount the reservoir when the cage is done. Charlie hooked us up with the drag link  and it fit perfect! :banana:

We replaced the power steering pump as it was working intermittently. It works better but the box may need to be rebuilt also as it sat out in the elements for awhile. We are slowly gathering parts to put the assist ram on it. Rickie drove it through the  wash today with me spotting him and I realize it really needs a anti-wrap bar on the rear diff :eek:

I ordered a box of gussets, and some tube flanges for the engine cross over bar. I also picked up the fittings for the steering box for hydro assist. Little by little we are getting closer to build the exo-cage.

I put the new seats it today. I also ditched the 30 amp stock alternator and installed a GM 100 amp. I had to rework the brackets and it is a pretty tight fit. Last week I cut down the air intake off my Jeep and put it on this instead.

We built the anti-wrap bar yesterday and it made a huge difference!

It's the shortest anti-wrap bar that I have ever built. it's a little over two feet long.

Dora and I went and picked up the tubing and took the tubing and Zuk to Tom's to build the cage this weekend. I'm hoping to get everything bent and tacked into place so we can bring it home to finished welding it this week.

After many hours this weekend we go the exo cage almost done. I still need to brace, gusset and finish weld everything this week. I think it turned out good. Thanks to Tom, Bubba, Dora and Rickie for helping me get it done.
