Heres the last post too just to put a little more in this thread.
Started constructing my new crossmember. The 2x2 will be welded onto the stiffeners and then the tube is welded onto a small piece of plate that bolts to the 2x2. Its tacked on now just to mock it up. Have a 4x6 piece of plate that will be welded in to bolt the tranny mount to. Eventually the hole bottom of the tube will be plated. Have to bend a piece of tube for the transfercase skid aswell.
Save and do rear LAs and the 8.8. After I get that done regear the 8.8 and HP30 that I find to 4.56 and do front LAs, bump up to just under 6" then too. Get chromollys for the 30 and throw some 35s on there. I could go on and on haha. I basically decided to skip the waggy 44 and do 8.8/30 until I get the knowledge and ability to run full width tons, and the little factor of money.
I just got the jeep back, it feels so much better driving this then my parents cars. No major updates though but I did change out my 4" red firestik for a 3" black one. Definitely like it better, and will be alot better in the parking garage when I go to work.
Is your crossmember going to be removable ? You might want to think about that.
