rear strech advice
my starting point
98 tj, 4" short arm, 15 gallon fuel tank with stock skid, rubi dana 44, 2" body lift
and making new fuel lines for the 5.3 swap
i already cut off the rear crossmember, and want weld my bumper on as a crossmember, move the gas tank up and more to the rear, to make room for a 4" stretch and outboarding the shocks
i want the advice and design help of others on this
i am contemplating either one of these
1 cutting off the crossmember the rear shocks mount to and making a new one two inches higher and making even more room for the gas tank
or 2, cutting the frame and the bend and making the whole frame from factory crossmember back two inches higher so i can eliminate the body pucks in the back and make the bumper and everything else higher
anybody have some thoughts about this??
