Stuck on 8.8 bracket location

Hey guys i was wondering if some one could help me out, i have the brackets and everything to be welded to the 8.8 but i dont want to mess up and have to reweld everything, I got lost when measurements said from "edge of pumpkin" and "center to center." by edge of pumpkin does it mean from the differential housing where the axle tube meet? center to center is also kinda confusing if some one could help out please. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Tom

umm, you could always look at your stock rear end to see where the perches and such measure out.

Also this my help, it's on a YJ, but same swap.

And another chock full of info.
