76 cj5 350 sm465 205 full width axles.

Getting ready to start my project. Any good build threads I should take a look at? How far will I need to strech it out? Planning to use yj springs. I want to build my own shackle perches so any ideas there would help. Have found several motor mounts which is the best bang for my buck. I am on a limited budget but not in a hurry to get it done. Off road use only. I'm sure I will have a lot of questions to come but for now any advice from people that have done a similar build would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

So, I have a slightly similar build. 79 cj5, Chevy Dana 60 front, Chevy 14 bolt rear, amc 401, ford t18, Dana 300.

Which axles are you running?

I would not run the 205. Way to big for a jeep. Unless you want a 6" tcase skid drop.

The picture is the best I currently have (dark and cold where the jeep is) but shows my outboarder spring hangers
