Mine wasn't in the way of much but since I was gonna have to move the steering box and redo a bunch of crap anyway, it wasn't really much more work to just raise and narrow that whole section. It did gain me some clearance and worked well for reasons I won't even get into. I just typed that then realized he's going full hydro, so I guess my logic doesn't apply.

My limiting factor right now is track bar to frame clearance. Only a 1/4" more though and my upper arm mount is into the serpentine belt. Sitting at almost 6" of up travel. If I really wanted to I could cut the top off my upper control arm mount and then notch/replace the front frame and gain another 1-2"

Mostly in the way. But I'm gonna get my links setup and check clearances before cutting.

Maybe I missed it but that "s" on the end of links made me do a double take, are you going to 4 link the front?

Sweet! I can't say that I have come across a full bodied wrangler with a 4 linked front so I will be paying close attention to this

Keeping it low is where the real challenge has been.

Yep, I know how that goes. I was able to get a 20" frame height with 6" of up travel on all 4 corners. It took countless hours though of almost purely staring to figure out where stuff is going to fit

I actually agree with this, I feel like it's just an online fad. There have been plenty of instances with Michigan wheeling where I wished I was just a little bit taller for more clearance

I like out of the box thinking...
Good idea Greg.
Run the left manifold backwards and wrap the pipe around the front first?

Before I started on the axle swap, I had the left side routing in front of the sump. But now I need to change it up and route it higher up and more in front to clear.
