I'll try and get a # for you to call. The guy that had it is in Moab for the EJS so you'll have to wait till he gets back.

Have you decided how you are gonna connect the drag link?
I have seen 2 of these on mini's and the drag link suxed on both, they had to use z shaped and it really looked cheesy.

OK.....you know these are under the axle type steering and there is currently no option for hi steer arms for this axle?

Why not ABS, you just plug the hole, or use it to make an arm that will mount 3 ways.
Why not the E-locker?

it is still on their web site and i also talked with sleeoffroad and they said "i can make no promises, but we are working on some" so, i cant do the crossover i thought about getting a tie rod from bud built and once it is sleaved it will be like 3/8" thick and 1.50" od soooo........ that might be an option.

OTT stop making theirs, I talked to them back in early Feduary.
I hope Slee Offroad would make some, I live about 10 minutes away from them.
