Did a bunch of measuring.....it looks like if i remove my a/c compressor, move the axle ahead a couple inches, and slightly clearance the frame i can stuff the axle right up into the engine compartment and keep 6+" of uptravel while keeping the same ride height....one of the advantages of a tiny engine lol...if it comes right down to it i can lift the drivetrain some too.....i am gonna end up attaching the trac bar to the frame on the passenger side and the axle on drivers since it will be easier to package

The rear axle fought us setting up the gears but it will be buttoned up tomorrow.

Bought a piece of 3/8 x4 bar today to build a truss....gonna truss it from c to c over the top of the diff....also got enough 1/4 plate to fill in the space between the truss and tube for added support
