this is a friend's zj with the same lift and 37" claws, he still rubs too, I'm sure you all can do ityour way but ours seem to do just fine also.

By no means am I not saying you can't do it your way. Just trying to offer the suggestion of keeping the CG low (well lower than it is now). I gotta give props to anyone who builds a ZJ because they are few and far between.

Yes lets. If I don't go to Drummond the beginning of May, I'll come to Cadillac for the Blessing. If not then lets hook up in late July. My wifes Family reunion is in Dublin last weekend of July. We camp at Sand Lake NFC. I planned on bringing the Jeep , and my brother in law should have is Rubi up there.

sounds good, my buddy that built the front bumper and bracketry for the lift will be along also. He bent his arms and put them inside the frame wells, keeping a low CG.

the 1st photo shows the rear gone. I'm going to follow my friend's example and cut a hole in the rear cargo area and raise the fuel tank.(inside)
Then use 1/4 plate between the frame rails, under the tank. Ledge proofing the tank area.pictured just above the creeper.
the 2nd photo is our trail zj next to the wife's D.D.
