Outboarded shocks

I plan to do this when I can actually afford it. Thought we could get a collection of everyone's setups, since I couldn't find a dedicated picture thread on it. Front or rear... lets see what you've done.

I am currently using the Clayton tower, frame notch, and axle side high clearance bracket.



Here are the axle side rear brackets that I was running on an old axle. New axe has the same ones.



A bit closer



Here is a picture of how the front axle side Clayton brackets look.

Poly Performance front shock mounts. Fit my Fox 2.0 coilovers just great.





Is this what you're asking to see?

I'd have to snap pictures of those. I did it the lazy way, and now regret it...

Cut out the lower spring perch and welded the new mount to the axle tube in the middle of the hole that was left from the perch. Doesn't look super great. At the time I was under a huge time crunch, and I needed to leave a portion of the perch because the sway bar bracket was welded to it. Long story short, do the bottom mount cleaner than I did it! I'll try and scrounge up a picture.

Found one picture of the new lowers. You can see the unpainted lower, and the placement for it here on the right side of the picture. I suppose it works.

PolyPerformance uppers and Ruff Stuff HD lowers.







In the process of adding Ford towers and bar pin eliminators to the front, till the front stretch.

TNT outboard kit, reloacted new Mopar replacement spring perches and caliper flip with the Black Magic E-Brake brackets. Still need some longer shocks but these were free.




And here is a shot of my buddy's Jeep during the same treatment.

I'm thinking of the TNT for the rear of mine. Any pics of ford towers on the front? I assume you just cut the stock shock mount from the bucket and weld on the ford? I actually have a pair of the ford towers in the closet that I was gonna use on my bronco, but never got around to it
