Exhaust clearance concern with UCF skid plate, Brown Dog MML, and JKS BL
I'm installing a JKS Body lift and Brown dog motor mount lift, in preparation of installing my UCF tummy tuck. I'm installing the original extra clearance skid, not the high clearance one. My question is, will I have any clearance issues with the exhaust hitting my upper control arm on the front passenger side? Also will I encounter any other clearance issues? Any input and suggestions on how to fix clearance issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

i have a JeepMedic tummy tuck, 1.25" JKS BL, 1" MML, and I had some rubbing of the exhaust on the UCA mount. Little bit of pry bar bending, a little 2x4 with a BFH, banging and bending here and there, and whala, its fine. takes 15 minutes and a ride to double check. start prying at the drivers side first...it will pull it over.

The motor is adjustable side to side, push it all the way to the driver's side when you do the mounts. After you redo the hangers in the back to lift the muffler up, check it and see what needs to be done and go from there.
