Taken from inside of the left-front fenderwell, this photo offers a clear picture of how exposed the pitman arm and tie-rod are to outside objects. The support bracket to the frame-mounted steering box (and other center steering arm at the other end) are attached by steel rivets. These will take a lot of time to remove. With a good air hammer, grinder, and powerful drill, removing all the attachment points could take a full day.
