I'll see if I can get the picture of us messing with the floor jack. Because it's an LJ, the crossmember wound up right about at the COG front to back. We used a block of wood standing on end at that center point and lifted up the whole rig until all four tires were off the ground with no ill effects.

Then I moved it to the front right under our 1 piece front support that goes up to the motor mount lift and lifted the front wheels off the ground. It is currently only 1/8" thick flat steel with a unique design that gives it tremendous strength.

Yes, currently at 1" because I ran out of time to coat our raw aluminum pucks.

It's tight in places and given the variances Jeeps are well known for, I won't guarantee stuff won't rub that shouldn't.

yeah but im confident you will make sure it works well, and Im confident Gerald will want to sell one to me!! i hope the rear bumper with reciever is ready at the same time, Im going for the biggest savvy order, try to buy one of everything except maybe taillights.

so you might have to make another set of LJ rockers too!

What's the final depth? Or at least a round about depth for the production model?

Kinda sucks that I bought the RE Long Arm a couple years ago... I hate to think what it would cost to yank it and get something else...maybe someday!

Slightly under 1.75" at the lowest part, but as I alluded to earlier, it's all about footprint. It's only 3/8" at the frame and then slopes down to the 15" wide section down the middle. We spend most of our time on the rocks at the shallowest section just inside the frame rails with very few drag marks down the middle. The clearance gets worse where it matters less and gets much better where it matters most.
