Yeah, you definitely don't want to shorten the wheelbase at all by having the tires off center.

Def would not do that. Jeeps wheelbase is small enough to begin with.

What are you going to do about the axle wrap you are going to have???? I've been here and done this and you WILL have axle wrap. You will know you have it because of the vibration during acceleration. Axle wrap is caused by the stock springs being worn and flexxy. A 3rd link is a must in a SOA with stock springs.

Installed new braided lines and metal lines. Also new rotors and front n rear brakes. I think I put pads on the wrong sides ( didn't think it made a diff)

At first the right front brake hung up. After switching them it felt OK.

I was about to right that I get vibration during acceleration in first n second, then notice the post about axle wrap. Is it safe to drive for a few days? Gonna fabricate something soon, just have to find a design to copy. Anyone have a good pic? What's the main purpose? Is it stopping the axle from rotating?

At first I thought it was the drive line angle, but it doesn't do it in 4*4 . Was thinking of using joints for a tractor three point hitch ? Suggestions?

Drive it like that as long as you like. Just don't rape it. If you get to heavy on the skinny pedal it may drop the drive shaft and that thing will take stuff out, mainly exhaust and brake lines. As for the joints for the bar you are going to make. You say tractor joints so I assume you mean Heim joints. That is actually the most preferred and strongest way you can go.....As it goes when building/fabbing anything that will require strength/stability. Remember this, triangles are your friend.

A tractor joint isn't really a "heim" joint per say....they are cheap and big, but also wear out really fast.

Gonna build one today with the joints from three point hitch, just cause I am on a limited budget. Gonna make it kinda like a ladder bar, although that wishbone design sure looks pretty sweet. If the design works well then when it wears out I'll build one from heim joints. I'll post some pictures later today.

Took part of a three point hitch and cut it in half (19.99 at tractor supply) put 1" black pipe on inside and aluminized tubing on the outside

Then cut a piece of c channel to fit around axle. The cut a piece of spring shackle for a trailer down and got them welded together ( thanks to mike at mieneke for the welding).

This then was welded to the bottom of the axle, kills clearance, but no lower than rear or shock mts. When I get more time I'm gonna mount my link from the mount to the trans mount. If I had a spare shackle I would like to make the front articulate, but I dont
