You can push it forward an inch or two and get away with a small steering box-bracket move or you can go for several inches and cut and straighten the frame and do a totally different box with custom mount etc. etc. A tierod flip will not generally work in the SOA configuration. Personally dont care for the bolt-on brackets and would either go terra flex knuckle or a WJ knuckle swap. If you do the terra knuckle order it blank and drill your hole in the right place. The factory hole-to-upper ball joint distance is too great.
Love your avatar. Totally badass.
Probably just two inches up front with wagoneer springs. Then, another two to five inches on the back if needed. My main goal is to make the rig easier to drive TO the trails - and keep it on 35s. So... my thought process was to get rid of the play in the steering. Then, lengthen the wheelbase up front. Then... if needed lengthen it out back. If it really goes well... I might even be able to use the Jeep as a backup commuter in foul weather. As it is... it just feels a little squirrely above 60 mph.
So... I guess I am also trying to get feedback from people who have done the waggy front and back wheelbase... was 4 inches (2 front 2 back enough)?
