This is a very good point.
You're a very bad influence on your own build.

I positioned the axle around the trackbar because I wanted to use the factory one. I pushed it forward about 1.5", would have liked more but I didn't think I could using that setup. On my ranger I made a custom trackbar and mounted it over the diff, worked great with the 44.

Cut out what was left of the old core support, radiator mount



Bent up a new one out of stainless



Installed




Mounted shocks, 4" up, 5" down. With them back on the radius arm I hope that's enough.



Just need rear shocks and a drag link, waiting on a reamer.

Turned out great. Great work Kyle, hell of a friend to do all this. Really impressed with the quality of work in the short amount of time.
If you ever get bored I've got one that could use an SAS...
