Yeeeeesh. Sounds like a recipe for a massive burn-your-jeep-to-the-ground fire. ATF is extremely flammable - you wheel like that? That's either really brave or really stupid

Why would you have to outboard them at all? Am I missing something?

To run longer shocks and get more droop.

how close are they to bottoming out now? moving them up will only raise the mount point about 2". If getting new shocks is an issue just weld the mounts back on

Mount them to the side of the axle tube. That way, you don't lose much up travel and they aren't munching on rocks.
