Here is my jeep sitting next to a friends, both on 35"s mine has 2.5" coils with 1" BL and he has 4" coils.

His rides so much rougher than mine, could also be the shocks difference but my coils are alot softer(progressive rated)

I am doing the goferit tie rod flip, and I could easily tell my track bar bracket would rub my tierod at full bump, so I cut an inch off the bottom of it and raised the track bar.

Moved the front axle forward a little more than an inch. She sits at about 95.5" wheelbase, perfect stance for now

Man that one inch front stretch is really noticeable from the side view. Nice one. From the angle of your arms it looks like we're about the same height in the front but your a bit higher in the back. Looks great as it sits! but a little lower in the rear might be even better. I'm surprised it's that high actually with a hardtop / full doors and a 2.5 spring.

What's the stock length, center of axle to axle?

Yeah its about 93.5" stock, my rear is pushed back an inch and the front is a little more than an inch. I love the stance now.

I didnt even notice this at first, usually when I take the top off and doors, itll raise the rear an inch. I have 2.5" coils all around, I do have an 8.8 in the rear now, which I believe lifts the jeep about .5" because the bigger axle tubes.

It doesn't rub anywhere, this is just a temporary solution. I dont plan on going offroading for another few weeks, maybe longer. I want to fix some bugs and just get use to driving it again haha. Once thats all sorted out, I will raise the mount and weld a gusset for more support.
