I have almost the same set-up running waggy springs up front for a couple more inches stretch foward. It works great 42" fit nice with waggies up front and XJs in the rear.

update, Jeep is mostly done for now had it out two times did very good. Here are some pics of it done seats and cage mounted tied into the frame, steering mounted and working very well. I think the best mods were the new suspension seats and the hydro steering one hand easily turns the 42's on the trails and in the rocks.
