Comp cut and Dovetailed XJs

Like the title says I want to see what everyone has cut out of there ass end to make room for big tires on lower lifts.

Kinda like this one
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...stretch&page=2

I am wondering how you reworked the sheet metal in the cab too.


For right now I'm just gonna flip my springs but I'm am starting to collect parts now for a 60/14 swap later and linking the rear and keeping my TNT long arms up front.

Oh and what did you do with your fuel tank/cell?

Here's what i'm doing right now. Not a fan of the comp cut look, so I just extended the wheelwells with tube. I'll rework the inner fender to match and it should work well. The rear is stretched 3.5" in this pic.

Do you have a picture of how they are mounted up? And how is your shackle angle?

If you did research you'd realize that that Zuggy is gone now and replaced by a tube buggy.

How did you move it back? Flip your XJ springs or rework your mounts? If you reworked your mounts how did you set up your shackle?

Why not just flip your XJ springs? I thought that netted about 4"? I am just looking for something cheap until I can afford to throw a 1 ton back there and link it.
