Default Full Width Spring Hanger Ideas

I'm doin' a Dana 60 full width axle swap on my CJ. I made some nice front spring mounts, but wanted to see some ideas (pictures) for the rear mount of the front springs. I figured I'd just copy M.O.R.E's design, but still open for some alternatives.

Thanks fellas.

I'm sorry I read wrong, I thought you were asking about the rear spring mounts. Look in my yj build thread. I frenched the fixed end in the frame so I could do a soa and get as little lift as possible.

Mine is pretty simple. 4x6 box tube, capped ends, overlapped and offset of frame, fully welded and homebrewed gussets that are boxed for spring mount.
