i thought i had a pic, but i cant find one now. i'll take one tonight. basically in the same place they are now, just behind the TC. I used the UCF bracket and drilled two holes in the angled lip on the back of the skid. then attached the bracket using two 1/4" bolts, and attached the pumps using the oem bracket and two 1/4" bolts. its not the strongest possible,only using 2 of the 4 holes on each bracket, but its solid, doesnt rub anything, and i dont think it will ever be an issue.
had to cut the exhaust hanger and i will be clearancing the skid a bit in the next few days, currently it is just barely touching my trans pan, but should be easy. the tricky part is getting a lopro to work with it. i'll take lots of pics as i bet i will be dropping and lifting this skid many times in the next few days.
tight fit is an understatement, its a game of millimeters.
i'm gonna get with Matt, at UCF, and make sure his will fit. only spot i'm worried about is the spot where the engine skid meets the TC skid. it has to be long enough for the bolts to mount past the trans pan.
You're rig is looking great! Cant wait to see all the new mods in person. I lowered mine the other day. Its now on currie 3" springs and will soon have rokmen's 1/2" BL for the tummy tuck. I'll be sitting at roughly 3.5" lift total. I'll have to check my actual measurements versus stock tho. I'm hoping actual measurements are even lower.
I'm close to pulling the pin on the tummy tuck this weekend though! You're TT install gave me the kick in the tush to get it done. I can't wait to wheel again!

So you're running 35" tires on a BDS 2" and JKS 1.25" body lift? How? did you get more than 2" of lift? I plan on running the same setup but on 33's...

I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about. I think...
people exaggerate with lift sizes to fit x size tire. I have also bumpstopped properly until I change shock mount positions and highline my front fenders
i did the math and liked what i got
you can run 31's stock
33 is 1" over 31's when considering the wheel well gap
35's are 2" over 31's, so a 2" lift is all thats really necessary, add the 1.25" BL to get the added clearance for a wider tire that would be slightly higher than a 10.5" tire when fully stuffed.
When i change my shock mounts for more uptravel, i will need to high line my fenders or trim the flares. you don't need a 4" lift to clear 35's, but it isnt a bolt on package either
