Finished the power steering, it seems to be working just fine. No leaks. Getting pretty close to road-worthy. I’m hoping I can get it done by the end of the year. This is everything (I can think of) that still needs to be done before I can drive it:
Burn in track bar mounts
Steering shaft stabilizer
Put gears in front axle
Get driveshafts made
Front brakes
Front brake lines
Bleed brakes
Shock hoops
Rear shock mount
Shocks
Bump stops
Limit straps
Burn in spring perches
Gear oil
Torque suspension
Washers for radius arms
Fix heli-coil
Grease/torque radius arm caps
Grease steering
Replace fuel filler neck
Shifter boot
New headlights/ fix wiring
License plate lights

Cut shock hoops to fit. My welder is out of commission with a bent liner, got one in the mail. The drivers side was pretty tricky to fit. Also got some bump stops in the mail👍
