Picture request please

So I'm about to make my own boom shackles this weekend and I'm thinking I want to go with 1 inch booms up front and 1/2 inch in the back.. The problem I'm having is I can find tons of pics of yj's with 1 inch lift booms up front but I can't find and with a good shot from the front or side to see how it'll look. If anyone has pictures of there's on hand and wouldn't mind showing I'd greatly appreciate it I know there 8 inches long total for 1 inch of lift and I wanna make sure I'm happy with the looks before I make them that long. Thanks in advance

1" booms front and rear in a 4" lift. Ford 8.8 in the rear so it has a little bit of a rake from size difference in axle tubes.

They are not 8" long for 1" of lift. You get 1" of lift for every 2" of added shackle length. So your 1" lift shackles should be 6" bolt to bolt.

Yea I already knew that but the total lengthy will be roughly 8 inches and I don't want it to look like crap that's why I'm on the hunt for pictures but Cant find what I'm looking for so I think im just gonna build them and if I don't like them I just won't use them
