That's the plan for now, get suspension done and set it down on springs to get an idea of how it's going to sit. Ran into a snag.....well more of a choice really. I can run more lift to get the frame away from the axle or.......move the front of the frame up.

So with the trackbar mocked in place I no longer have any clearance issues between the upper mount and the oil pan. It did bring up some other "issues" though.

Testing suspension out

And the "issue". With belly @ 21" or whatever it's at with the current setup I'm going to be bottoming out bump stops on speed bumps . This is with pass side at ride height and 4" uptravel at drivers spring perch.

Flipped tie rod is into the track bar mount.

For the record, TJ's look retarded all low with big tires(maybe it's just the type of tire ) It's already been pointed out that it's on backwards......its so I can reverse out of the mud hole when I get stuck
