Does it only hit when flexed?

No, it is sitting up against it all the time. I think the axle is centered, but I'll double check to see if I can just shorten the trac bar

Yeah, nevermind. . . Looked closer today and the axle definiitely isn't centered. I guess everything shifted an inch or two after taking the Jeep for a few test rides. I read that the axle will center itself if you disconnect the track bar, hop up and down on the bumper, and turn the steering wheel back and forth. I'll test that method and let you know sometime this week. If it doesn't work it will at least be fun and anyone walking by my house while I'm doing it will get a good laugh.

That was pretty much what I did when I put in my IRO adjustable. Disconnected it, wiggled it left to right then bounced it up and down with the wheels pointing straight.

My build thread has pics again. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/kevin108s-2000-xj-build-867428/

I did something a bit more scientific and brought out the tape measure.

Well, I did that too. I measured from the wheels to the body and it was within 1/16".
