I'll get a better shot tonight so you can see the geometry.
I may add the BL and MML, and I have some IPF 968 lights for the front windshield bracket.

i can go out and look at my jeep to see what the geometry looks like. the dropped pitman arm and track bar bracket are not necessary.

I assume the axle is shifted toward the drivers side about an inch? the adjustable track bar would allow you to center the axle. so would re-drilling your axle side track bar mount.

what exactly is your concern with the gemoetry?

Thanks! I didn't have a concern until the tire-guy said I needed to change it to get rid of the death wobble. But now that the DW is gone, I'm second-guessing his recommendation.
You're right in regards to the axle.

Oh, and if you don't have a blowtorch to warm up stubborn components that won't budge, a crème brûlée torch will do. It looked silly but worked like a champ.

It was the wobble of death, no doubt. Before replacement, the driver-front tire sounded like an oval. I had a suspicion it was part of the problem. It may be gone for the time being but know not to say it has been resolved.
The next step would be the ADJ track. As we talked before I dont like the idea of keeping the front track in the stock location with the raised height, nor drilling out the stock mount for several reasons. In my experience, when the angle of the front track bar is different than the angle of the drag-link (from tie rod to pitman) you are out of correct geometry.

A dropped pitman arm is not the right idea here, they are mostly used for lifts over 4" and in that case I would suggest a different steering setup anyway.

We'll see where she sits after settling, decide on the JKS or no JKS body/MML and most likely go with an ADJ track, then bury her in some mud

You should have seen Charles' face when I asked if he had a torch.

Not only can my torch help remove steering stabilizers, it can crystallize sugar into a delicious, caramelized shell.
