TJ 1 Ton Axle Swap Questions

Hey, Planning my 1 ton build for when I get back from the desert, and am running into some questions. The Lift I'm looking at has adjustable front/rear, upper/lower control arms and front track bar, I'm also getting a SYE so I can get whatever driveshaft I need. I'm planning on running a 6" lift with 1" BL and 36" tires on my 14B r, hp60 front.

Heres the questions, what should my pinion angle be at? Since I have the SYE and adjustable everythings is there a better setting than just pointing at the trans case? Also, since I'm starting from scratch, would stretching the wheelbase be that worth it for 36s? I dont think Ill have much room in the rear with my stock tank but maybe I could scoot up the front a little.

Any advice would be great, thanks!

with the 4 link, a pinion angle pointed at the t-case works well with a CV style shaft.

In the front, you have to find a compromise between pinion angle and castor angle on the D60. In a TJ, castor is going to critical, to keeping death wobble to a minimum without any type of hydro assist.

Stretching the wheel base is always cool, but to do correctly, requires quite a bit of effort and relocation. 100 to 103" seems to be a great wheelbase for all around wheelin.

Thanks for the advice, I think I'm going to keep waiting to do a rear stretch, just got the idea from a friend to stretch out the front an inch or 2.

Also, from anyones experiance, any problems running a stock front driveshaft with an adapter to fit the 60? (assuming a 1350 or so) also, couldn't I just use shims to fix castor? that was my plan to keep the font pinion angle good, any input would be great, thanks!
