You could integrate it into the B pillar triangulation like I did:

I couldn't go any higher with the harness bar than it is to clear the seat all the way back. If I had a nice tube bender I could but this was the limit of my harbor freight kinker. I think adding triangulation to the b pillar is what I will do. Gunna play around with some tape after work and see what I can come up with

$420 for the pair, but they originally quoted me $550-600. The quality on them looks top notch, they even went through the time to polish and clear coat them for me. It's gunna suck dragging them through rocks the first time

Damn that's a good price! I spent that on just my rear Tom Woods. Granted I did have to spend extra for the ground CV, but still

You should have ordered axle straps instead of limit straps, cheaper and the same basic thing

Final wheelbase is 106" frame height 19" and 6" of up travel on all 4 corners



Edit: all those numbers with no cutting of the stock frame, and shocks hoops under the wheel well

Axle straps stretch, limit straps don't, or as much. I'd buy limit straps, you don't want them to fail.
