Ben, This is going to look sweet when your done. I'll have to stop by and check it out. One question are you leaving the axles full width or did you narrow them? By the way the rear bumper and tire rack worked out great my YJ, thanks

benny- Do you have any pics of where your 3 link was hitting? I am doing a very similar suspension, and I want to do a 3 link front.

i did a 3 link on mine(03) and wheels of steele(97) and we had no issues.both of the upper links are on the passenger side.i had to cut my ex pipe right at the bend and just weld it back on.mike had no issues with his 97.my upper high steer arm hooked to my steering link is real close to hitting my frame. my jeep sits real low.

Well if I wanted my jeep taller it would work perfect. But byrce has me convinced on keeping it low which is smart so at full stuff my upper link was hitting the mechanical fan. Than the tracbar mount that I bought from poly, the bolt center was on the centerline of the frame.. Bryce and I cam to the conclusion that my jeep should sit with 4" up travel like 73-75" to the top of my soft top.. SO in other words at full stuff my front axle centerline is even if not above the bottom side of my frame.

bens is going to make yours look tall

he could fit a track bar in there but the angles would suck and it wouldnt work as well as it should. a 4 link is the better choice for what he has going on.

you moving your steering box?putting a astro box in? get as much stretch out of the front that you can.i am still using my stock box location so i pushed the front out about 3 inch.my tires still rub the back of my fenders at full lock and stuff.
