Pretty sure it's 29.5".

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D

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?
