Search under my name and steering...I posted up some pics and info on steering for a yj...Your gonna probably need a 80's waggy arm and move your box with a reloaction bracket...If your swapping to 44's or 60's your gonna need the waggy arm so you'll get full left to right steering anyways.

Another option is an arm from a 2WD Ford Ranger. They are straight, but ~0.5" shorter than a stock YJ arm. The Ranger arm is clocked different so you'll need to file out the four small keyways.

RGRHash that looks almost exactly like my set up.

do you know if you can get those waggy arms at napa or is that a pick&pull item?
