The hardest part of doing a hy-steer or crossover set-up is locating and bolting on the IFS ps-box in a good spot. Since you already have it bolted on it would be really silly to try and adapt the old push-pull system. Do it right and go crossover.

Your truck will drive more like a Tercel and less like an aging piece of farm machinery. :D Another option is to go with el cheapo crossover steering which is just a single arm that puts your drag link on top of the leafs, but leaves your tie rod down in front. Did that make sense? Martz has a picture...

I agree that a double arm is a good low-buck alternative. Still, there are a (very) few obstacles over here where the correct line will put you in danger of nailing your tie rod into a stump or rock.
Example: Neil's Knoll on the DSS trail is a good example. You can't crawl the rock because it's pretty much always wet (mud all around the place). You need to use speed but there's a stump in the middle of the good line. If you don't get off the pedal quick enough, your tie rod hits the stump. Saw Vern bend his tie rod a few years ago doing that obstacle.
