My Church Boys Conversion

Ok, I have most of my stuff and will be getting the rest next week. The DD shaft is getting swaped out for the polished one. But here is what I have so far. I will try and take some pics as I go and ask a bunch of questions I'm sure

Which column is that?

I know you can use either the IDIDIT or Flaming River, but is there one "better" than the other? for lack of a better word

The kit was engineered around the ididit column but iether would work fine.Which ever you could get the best price on.Be carefull the lower shaft on the FR column may be a different style/size or spline count.You may need a different upper joint to make it work.Do some home work before purchasing the joints.

watching to see how well this goes. I dont think anyone can stay on top as far as how fast new parts come out for this stuff. One of the reasons Im glad I still have a month to worry about it.

Did a little bit more tonight, only the passenger side. I figure if I keep doing just a little bit everyday I can get this done faster. I have an understanding wife
