Does anyone think my front axle is too far forward?

No, not at all.

From the full stuff front pic, it doesn't look like you have much clearence to turn left/right. The rear of the front tire may contact the body if you go back any further. In order to test this, do a full stuff again and turn the wheel from side to side to see clearance. If oyu ever go larger with tires, you might need to go even further forward.

Ha, K. Have we heard yet if any WJ has succesfully put this in so we can be 100% sure it's a direct swap?

And what bumper are you getting?

Taking pictures while driving 60mph is probably a lot more dangerous than being disconnected for a few days.
