Kinda random, but I took them, and thought someone might like them or even <gasp> be able to use them

Lessee, we'll do the custom steering shaft first. I cut just the spline end off the old shaft and welded it to the greasable U-joint ($35), then welded the square tubes (~$5) to the U-joint, then cut the rag joint off the old shaft and welded that on the end. Also stuck a grease nipple (~$.25) up near the rag joint that greases the slip joint.

So, it's
old spline | U-joint | square tubes that extend | rag joint end

This pic is the shaft collapsed.

Here's the side of the radiator that faces the AC condenser. The top cooler is the factory ATF cooler. The little square one below the ATF cooler is the power steering fluid cooler I put in there.

I like the looks of that fan. Have you had a chance to try it out in the truck yet?

yeah, I've done a 20-30 minute idling in the driveway test, and an errands run to Home Depot / Lowes with 45mph max speed and many redlights, and the temp stayed good.

No extended highway test yet, but I can't imagine that wouldn't be fine.
