I was under the impression that the XJ springs would move the axle back farther than what it looks on yours. I like the setup you have, and the stance. Maybe that is the route I will go too.
I have the complete frame cut with my motor, so I may try and make the stock 6.0 motor mounts work somehow. It looks to me like I can make them work. I haven't seen anybody else going that route though, so I'm kind of curious if there's a reason that I'm not seeing.
