Already sold them. I'm going to make up some custom control arms that aren't straight. I want some higher clearance stuff. If it works out I'm going to ditch the front lower control arms as well. My lower control arms are 2" .500 walled DOM and I already bent one of them.

Triple88a I just measured my stock control arms and they are exactly 15 3/4" from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole.

It really is tough to say how much adjustability each lift needs. Best case scenario is to build in enough adjustment that your control arms will grow with you. For instance, my 4 adjustable control arms grow 5" in length. And again, which end do you plan to work on? Front or rear? Do you need to rotate the pinion angle in the future? That all plays a role in how long your control arms need to be.
you got that pic of your jeep with the angles on it?
