It's a roller! Used a GenRight universal transmission crossmember. They have 2 options and sent the wrong one. They offered to swap it out but I didn't want to wait so I cut it up and made it work even better.

Rear GenRight shock towers. I cut and angled these. Used their lower mounts as well. I really liked them. They mount on the back side of the axle tube and the bolt that goes through the shock is perpendicular to the axle. Shouldn't have any binding. Only issue I had was the bottom of the Fox air shock is squared off so I had to clearance the mount to get proper movement

I was going to buy the back end of another jeep to graft on to this one. The PO put a '90 tub on due to rust. I was going to chop off 12" and then add the back 24" from another tub but my local guy wanted $450 and I thought that was too much. I will attempt to make my own fill panels

Couldn't wait for help. Too impatient. Decided to figure out how to move the body by myself. Hooked my tree saver up to the seat mounts for the cage. Used the engine hoist to raise and move the body
