Who makes the large diameter Steering linkage?

I have seen them on a few series trucks, but I have not seen them for sale!

Pretty easy to make yourself too. You can just cut the ends off so you have the female threaded side and find thicker tubing and weld the cut off ends into the new larger diameter tubing.

On my rig I went with GM 1 ton tie rod ends and .25" thick DOM tubing. I bought a DIY kit from Ruffstuff specialties. http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...g/XOGMSTE.html

Good luck with it.

WOW!
how did I miss all this?
I did look

Since I'm adding the 200tdi, should I upgrade the drive shafts?
The old ones are toast.

The cost of this baby SURE is going up fast right now!

thanks for all the help guys!

The early series u joints are the same as coiler (1300?) the later 2a and series 3 used the more common and bigger 1310(?) style. I'm going through this now as Im putting together my drive shafts.

You can tell the difference by the width of the yolks. The early series and coilers are about 3.25" wide and the later series yolks are 3.5" wide. The bearing caps for the u joints are the same size.
