also tried RE drop brackets and adjustable arms, they were also removed/replaced

rolling mock up with final suspension and glass fenders

Thats pretty intense, you should post this in the XJ section as well. It will probably get a lot of appreciation there.

Thanks, intense is right, had about 4-5 guys constantly helping me when it was tear down/thrash/frenzy time but now that it is the time consuming fab stuff and prep, I am a one-man builder, had to learn lots of tricks to do the three and four handed heavy jobs, with only 1 free hand. I will post in the XJ forum when I am able to post pics,
