few small question on running dana 60's in a TJ

im in the process of putting on a dana 60 front, and a 14bolt rear in my TJ, im going with the stock wheelbase lenght, and was just seeing if you guys had problems with the rear axle rubbing on the gas tank when flexed? and how you guys ran your tie rods up front to go to the steering box..yea i know i shouldnt but im running the stock steering box for a while to i can do a redneck ram..any help would be great...also i will be posting a build up shortly as i cont. along with it

If you have adj CAs then you can set where the axle will sit under there and away from the gas tank. Personally I would move the gas tank up and give the axle more space to be pushed back. It is gonna be tight up front if you keep the stock setups, I barely cleared when I put the Waggy44 in mine.

Its gonna be very close with the 14 bolt and the gas tank hitting, I smacked my old 8.8 on my gas tank, was running much lift though. Also how big a tire are you running? With that big a rear axle you need some serious tire or your gonna drag that pumpkin around, and if you go too tall w/out a stretch...gonna be tippy....

But you can always look at a fuel cell to give the 14 bolt lots of room.
