That is awesome and so clean you better just leave it in the garage with the vettes. No - just kiddin, you need to wheel that Jeep. You really should lose the transfer case drop though and correct the driveline angle when you redo the rear perches. Sorry for repeating if that was your plan. That will also tilt the engine away from the firewall if it happens to be too close now -wouldn't want to scratch that beauty!

I just realized removing the transfer case drop will require I get shorter bolts, anyone know what size they are and where to get them? Just hit the hardware store for grade 8 or 10?

The bolts are 1/2 13TPI, or 1/2 NC thread (just went and pulled one out.....) The threaded section is 1 1/4 inch long. The OEM ones have a cone shape under the head, similar to lug nuts, to center the skid plate, but these are not absolutely necessary. To get a set of these, you have to make a trip to the junkyard and pull them off another Jeep.
You can of course substitute standard Hex bolts, but you really don't need grade 8. Grade 5 will do it unless you just want Gd 8. Photo:
