Finally have the body on the new frame. Gonna have to gut the grill to mount the radiator. I will mount it to the front of the shock hoops. That will let me angle the bottom of the radiator out to clear the front diff.

I knew that my shock hoop would end up where my steering shaft needs to go. Got this 3/4" Heim from PSC. I think I will move it up to the shock hoop to give more support to the U joint and to decrease the angle

Going to weld some mounting tabs to the front of the shock hoops right behind the marker lamps. These will line up with the bolts that attach the fender to the grill. This will lock the entire front en together.

Also did a little trimming to the front fenders. It at least clears while sitting on the bumps

Why so much real estate up front cant you push your steering box back and and give yourself some crossover steering and a way better approach angle. Whats the benefit of doing links if you still have the departure angle of a leaf sprung rig. Im not meaning to criticize nor are those my intentions just giving some suggestions.

I pushed my axle forward by about 6" to get it in front of the engine for better weight distribution lcog. I am staying with a hydro asst because I drive on the road a lot and my wife also drives it. I already had the CJ Saginaw PSC box so it was the obvious choice. I could replace it with a JK style box but it wouldn't fit w the radiator. I am keeping it as short as possible but there are always trade offs. My top priority was to have a stable, safe dual sport rig that I could take my family camping in. Approach angle suffered, but full hydro is not an option for this jeep.

Im not saying you have to go full hydro, cant the box be pushed back farther or is it into the radiator?? Maybe the picture makes it look worse than it is You could also go with an astro box its a forward throw box like the jk but way way cheaper. I just think you would benefit from not having so much frame sticking out in front of your grill and your drag link sticking so far out in front
