Bunch of questions:
1. How much are they going for?
2. How do the fittings line up with Toyota pieces? Or do they even without switching both hoses or getting custom lines made?
3. Are there regular and HD versions? Any differences in mounting?
4. How do they mount? Like a Toy IFS box to the outside of the frame pretty much?
5. How is the reliability and power compared to an IFS toy box?
6. Who makes the necessary pitman arms/inserts to mate it to Toy crossover/hysteer?

Any info and I'll take it.

before you go too far keep in mind that it is like the IFS box BUT the arm swings the OTHER direction so the box has to be mounted about where your shock is now..

I did it so threads would all be american and well I sold my old box so I needed a new one anyway. With a wagoneer arm the GM stuff bolts right on too..

Talk about short steering shaft though..

clearance is no different than an IFS box, although I did kinda screw up and mount mine a tad lower <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

I to used a scout box and a wagoneer pitman arm( bradon were did you get that idea? i thought i was the first to use the wagoneer arm? ) i doesn't matter. i paid $160 at j&w auto wreckers in antalope. i used a chevy power steering hose from cavaleir and used the stock cavalier pump fiting then i flared the tube and installed( this took a while ) i also plated the frame from the front to the shock tower (stock) and used so DOM inside the frame . One little problem i had was that the bolt that is on the input side of the pump (the only one) ended up in the corner of my stock engine mt. but i can still put a wrench on it.

I dunno lots of people use that arm - but I went a step further and had the taper redone to put an actual pitman arm on it (tie rod ends don't have as much rotation in them..)

Actually - it is not quite a flat arm and I am looking for a flat one - any ideas?
