I finally got my boost gauge yesterday so I was able to install my gauge mount. I like it because it puts all my gauges right where I can see them easily. My seat sits high enough that I can still see the front 1/2 of my hood so they don't block any of my vision.

In this first picture at the left side in the old dash Bezel is my fuel level gauge and below it is the fuel pressure gauge.



This picture is my boost, oil pressure, GPS speedometer, water temp and trans temp. Below in the old bezel is the left turn light then my Tiny Tac and the right turn light is last.



This last picture on top of the dash is my stereo, near the bottom on the front side of the dash in front of the shifter box is my E-Transcontrol. On the side of the shifter box I have a trans pressure gauge that's in the accumulator port. The empty hole in the mount is for a future project's gauge. In case someone is wondering what the green light is on the side of the shifter box it shows that my shifter has the neutral locked out so that if I decide to bang through the gears I don't loose count and go into neutral.

Dash setup looks great. I like how you did all of the gauges. Looks very clean and well thought out.

Yea it's all about easy to see, I didn't like the stock dash gauge setup had to look around the steering wheel to read the gauges. I have my trans controller box where I can get to it easy if I want to make any adjustments.

The FedEx man just brought my new power steering gearbox so I can put crossover steering on the Dana 60. The Pitman arm from the 2nd Gen Dodge fits the shaft and has a nice drop on it. Also the Dodges steering shaft fits the box, wonder if I could get lucky enough it fits at the steering column so I can get rid of the rag joint on the Blazer. Maybe this weekend or first of next week i'll be sliding the Dana 60 under it.



I would like to give a special thanks to Gatlin at PSC Motorsports for sending me some extra "O" rings for my pressure lines. Great Company to do business with if you need a gearbox.

I ended up having to buy a new steering shaft, so I got a good one Borgeson. The shaft and some 9/16 bolts and nuts came today so maybe in the next couple days I can put the Dana 60 in.

Yesterday I pulled the old front axle out, and slid the Dana 60 under about where it should go. Replaced the steering box and put the Borgeson shaft on.

Today I welded the front spring mount in and made the rear shackle mounts and welded them in. I positioned the axle just a little forward of the center of the wheel opening for clearance issues.

It was getting dark when I quit and the lighting isn't the best in my garage so pictures will come later.

Sorry still no pictures, I got carried away working trying to get it done today and started getting hungry. I looked outside and it was starting to get dark, but it had been raining with thunder storms about all day so there was no sun. I came in the house and saw it was 5:40 and thought no wonder I was hungry last I ate was breakfast, so I called it a day.

I did get quite a bit done, brakes are hooked up and bled. Axle perches are welded on and also driveshaft is on. Most of the day was spent making my steering linkages, scavenged parts from the Dodge and my old Fords ttb 50 linkages. I wanted 1 solid straight bar between the front tierods and the Dodges was like a Y and so was the Fords. I had just enough parts and pieces to do it and the wheels turned back and forth without any linkages hitting anything. If it works ok later i'll order the same setup that's on my Fords Dana 60, it's the same way as the way I did the Blazer only in more pieces.

Tomorrow I have to get some new front shocks and figure out a way to mount them. I don't think I can mount them where the old ones were because of my leaf springs being wider. Thinking about doing them like on my Ford, mount on top of the spring plate and then straight up to the frame, looks like the simplest way. I also have to mount the t-case shifter handle and cut a hole in the floor for it, I hope my console isn't to wide to bring the handle next to it.

So you're doing a traditional crossover steering setup ?

Yes I did a crossover steering, no more bump steering for me. Hopefully it rides better in the front, the spring that were in it was a 4 or 6" lift so they were rough.

Here are some pictures
The first picture is the rear shackle I used parts from Barnes4wd to make it. Here are the links to what the pieces looked like that I used since I forgot to post the pictures before installing them.
