Ford Super Duty Extended Steering Coupler

Does anyone know where I can pick one up at.I know sky makes one but I want to try to find one cheaper. Didn't find any on eBay. So I thought I would try here. Before I shell out the money.

There are several lifts out there that come with them so someone else has to unless there buying them all from that one company. i've searched for one as well and so far there all i found. you could try getting in touch with one of the lift manf. and ask them or see if they'll sell just that. doesn't seem like it'd be to hard to do yourself other than finding out what the thread on them is. are you just trying to make your drag link longer?

Yeah my drag link needs to be a little longer. Makes my wheel a little off. I thought about making one up at work. But after being there 60-70 hours a week I really don't want to stay there any longer than I need to.

Well idk if this is the safest way but much cheaper. seen a few ppl cut the bar itself then get a piece of .250 wall tubing that will fit around it and get your extra length. i dont like the factory adjustment. i made mine out of 2 heim joints and and a piece of 1.5" .250 wall tubing i think its much stronger than the factory plus still gives you adjustment.

How wide are your tires? I wanna run 38s but worried about rubbing.

I talked to a friend who has an 03 with 8" he said he had plenty left to adjust his out. also have you checked into a drop pit man arm? are you currently running one? if so how much?

It still has room to adjust it but not enough to make me warm and fuzzy. As for the drop pitman arm yep I have one as for the size what ever came with the icon kit. Really I should just stop pussy footing around and just do cross over and be done with it all toghter
