    you could grab the box, bracket, pitman arm and the tie rods
    the Commando might also have the double hole knuckle on the pass side
    if so, grab it too.
    also the intermediate shaft and the large u-joint that connects the two shafts
    you're still going to have fab work as well.....
    been a long time, hard to recall.

    You pretty much nailed it Jim. The column is quite different but can be made to work. If I was going to that much work I'd use an XJ or other Saginaw column with the tilt function.

    you may also have to notch out the bottom edge of your front bumper for p/s gear clearance; just something else to check after we had our conversation...
