    Project Yukon Prerunner

    Hey ya'll,
    My buddy picked up a 97 Yukon Prerunner platform. The previous owner stripped the most of the 4x stuff out of it. He didnt have the skills to build a prerunner so my buddy picked it up for a "song"..I will be building it..Bumper to spare tire/inner rear bed cage..To include full cab and engine cage.. here are some Tie rods i fabbed up for him. Still more re-enforcement at the spindle end to do like I did at the centerlink end....Name:  60325025_2441360285896796_3796249725246636032_o.jpg

    Do the drop brackets not have any support between them or is it just removed in the picture?

    Those steering links look good but I gota ask why so many welds .
    Up the tube size to 1 3/4 x375 or so.something if worried about 1.5x25 tube nit bsing strong enough.

    Looking forward to more

    Well we can agree to disagree... The way they are made is "A-OK". So many welds? 1) weld the bungs to the tube sleeve(s), 2) Tube sleeves welded to the main tie rod tube. I Have made many of these to include the centerlink...3) you use (I use) sleeves as to make the fitment easier to adjust for adjustment and so on and so forth... 1.25" x.120 wall is more than strong enough for this application. Plus "room" becomes and issue, especially in full lock of turning...

    It should be a fun project. Sounds good. Leaf springs are capable too, easy to figure out and get plenty of travel. Links can get complicated with geometry, length, clearance and location not in any particular order haha.

    Looking forward to more updates.

    Lol well agree then, welds look great just twice as many I I think is needed. I can see how the slaves tubes could help making fitup much easier
