I will eventually shave the 14 bolt, it likely is more beef than I need for now. I'm also not to happy with the rear factory style shortarm setup. I want to go 4 link and get rid of the track bar. So would be better to sell the 8.8 setup for TJ than cut all stuff off. Then cost is a factor, I'm going to run a Dana 60 front and cheaper to just stay on 8 lug, I already planned on having to buy wheels cause I was going to run a D44 and need 5 on 5.5. If I would have kept 8.8 either need adapters $100 or C Clip eliminator kit $500. to get Big 5, but then LOL the 60 would cost me a bunch to get down to 5 lug. So I figured would be cheaper in the long run, eventually I will likley put some big meats on it. Just not from the start, but that could change.
Hoping tonight to weld in my engine mounts, I messed with them last nightfor awhile till my 14 bolt showed up, guy delivered it to me!! Can't beat that.
