Holly crap, that is definitely bad ass! I have seen a few pics of the rig before, but the dovetail is definitely crazy, probably teh first Waggy dovetailed I have ever seen

Keep it coming, makes me miss my woody... forget that sounds kinda naughty

Still a lot of body to go through though

im going to run 16in coilovers, but i have put air shocks in a couple trucks and i really liked them. and i will have rear steer now so as for the size of the jeep i can still fit in most places but its just a hair over 100in wide so i have to do some shinanagins to get through some tight spots.

It looks like you have really long rear links, so this might not be possible to change, but the upper triangulation doesn't look like it has enough angle to position the axle under the rig. Just an observation, not tryin to critique. if it works, more power to ya.
