Here is what I did to mine. I know its not for everybody.
I just trimmed the lip off the back with my angle grinder then clamped them to the fender where I wanted them( flush with the top) then drilled holes and used the YJ mounting hardware.

Too far back? No. Remember that when your springs compress in the rear your tire moves up and back.
