Well for the sub, it will take some fabrication but, in the Srt 8 model jeep, I saw a few with them built into the plastics, you could put it in where the cargo net side area is or if you don't have a spare in, put it in there

True. Steering and DW are in the front. Nobody ever puts LA on the rear but not the front. There is good reason for that.

JL makes a stealth box that installs directly in the cargo net area. It's expensive though, and, with JL, you definitely pay for the name.

Get the front axle location and angles under control, and you'll be much happier....in my personal opinion.
Thanks, I appreciate the advice

Buy skycrappers or rough country shocks. And disco the front sway bar. Nobody will want to ride anywhere in it.

I'm thinking from the size of the bend, it's one of the concrete bases that they mount parking lot light posts to.

...and darn fast too

I'm picking up the car hauler from my brother's house tonight, checking bearings and tires tomorrow, possibly re-wiring the lights. T minus 5 days to Moab!!!
