I read back in the thread and you said that you're running spacers but your front axle has been narrowed. My question is what BS are you running on your new beadlock rims? Are you still running spacers? Are you running spacers all around or just the front? I'm running a 60/14 combo and I want to keep the narrowest width as possible, I'm thinking 17x9 rims with 39x13.5x17 tires (chewed up rollers I got for free). I'm basically looking to replicate your setup.

do you have more pictures of the shock hoop install. started my build a few months ago and pretty much going to have the same set up as you. not sure how to go about setting up the front shocks. and how much did you stretch it? looks good!

Build looks great! Always loved a full body XJ with tons and 40's.

I would suggest a cross brace for the shock hoops though. Keep it from shifting too much force on a single hoop. I'm no expert, just opinion based! Look forward to more

I was originally running 2in spacers when I was using my build wheel and tire combo. Cuz he had a big backspacing. I am not currently using spacers. And have not check the backspacing on these wheels. I'll check that out for ya when I take the wheels of this weekend.

No on hand I'll be painting everything this week I'll grab a few pictures.

Set your axle and jeep to ride height.
Decide how much up and down travel you want
Measure to where you like your hoops to be with your up and down travel and ride height in mind
Pick your shock from your measurments and needs
Buy your material Dom and mounts unless your making them.

You'll need to cut into the inner fender well also for hoop and shock clearance

Tac weld everything and do a little flexing with it make sure things clear don't bind ect

It's stretched over stock probably like 2-3 in up front

These are 16in fox 2.0. I got a good deal on them. Only have 4 up as that all would allow for clearance but it works well
