The box is in a pretty good position,(in my opinion).The steering rod has a nice relatively staight shot up to the column.The u-joints are in a good position also,no real binding problems I can see.

02-25-2010 08:52 PM Mounting the steering box
With the frame boxed in,I needed to locate the vega box on the frame.I drilled holes thru both sides and welded tubing in for the bolts to pass through.I ground the weld on the out side of the frame but left the tubeing on the inside to act as spacers so the box will tighten down evenly.

I ended up welding up all the extra holes and trimming the lower part of the rail to match the upper.Then made a plate and boxed it in.

Im using a vega steering box,but before I could mount it on the frame,there were a few things I needed to do.First the frame has a lot of unneeded holes in it,and second,the lower part of the rail is wider than the upper part making it hard to box it in.

02-13-2010 08:38 PM Fuse box
Before I welded the mount in,I drilled a hole in the toe board below the mount area.This will let the rest of the harness pass down out of the cab and out into the engine bay and back to the rear of the truck.The column and dash part of the harness will go up through the inside of the mount and onto the dash area.
