As sure as a guy 800 miles away from his jeep can be I guess.

The distance between the centers of the shackle mounts is 27.5" (for sure) and the shackle hangers are 2" wide. So 27.5+1+1=29.5.

The part I'm not sure about is if the outside edge of the hangers is exactly in line with the frame....but I believe it is.

Besides, shouldn't something like that be built with the Jeep close at hand to take measurements and make sure it's gonna fit?
