It would be nice to have it pointed up some to keep the yokes from getting beat up though.
I'd be more concerned with the caster.
Ya, I started to think about it, and i think i will go with 6-8 degrees.
I can see that i am going to need a new tranny skid plate also.
the front drive shaft is going to hit the stock one with this steep of drive angle. and I am somehow going to need to mount a shackle mount to it for a traction bar.
And besides, your new skid is looking HOT!!!
