|g23crawler||Little bit done on the motor, still waiting on heads. Also going to be stupid busy the next week or two, hopefully I can find some time to work on it. I would like to be done before Easter jeep, probably wont go since Iv been multiple times before but it would be nice to say its ready if I wanted to go!|

|g23crawler||LS1 build time! Specs are unknown at this point, I need to do some more research on parts. I want it to be alittle wild but can still run on 87 if needed. I dont want to be in the middle of no where and worry about finding a premium pump.|

|g23crawler||I already cut the back cross member out and moved the tank back. This works good with the 4" stretch armor I have from poison spyder. I guess I can always upgrade later if I want.|

|NashvilleTJ||Here is the Genright 19 gallon Crawler next to the stock LJ 19 gallon tank. After removing the 2nd LJ cross member, it does allow for a good bit of stretch. You are right though, it is pricey. I toyed with the idea of stretching as much as I could with the stock tank, but in the end after all the work to stretch it, I wanted the axle as far back as possible while still keeping a good sized tank under there. I really, really wanted to get rid of that nasty LJ overhang.|

108 was with factory tank. That was the absolute max stretch with the 14 bolt before it hit the tank

|g23crawler||I'm planning around 114-115, i'm only doing a 4" rear stretch. Otherwise ill have to run a fuel cell or gen-right tank. I don't think a couple extra inches in the back is worth the price tag of a new tank.|

Man, your front is way out there, 87tpi. Are you running full hydro?
Im sitting at 115. I can appreciate what it took for you to get to 116.5. Nice.

Thanks, the build thread is longer and a little more detailed here. I was wondering why I had seen your thread before but wasnt subscribed, then realized I was subscribed to the pirate one.
I think the rear stretch its more than that? Stock LJ is 103. I was at 108 right after the frame tub extension which seemed to put my tires in the middle of LJ 4 stretch corners. That also makes since being 15 longer than YJ wheel base. After linking the rear it ended up at 112 (front was maybe stretched 1/2 at the time with leafs). Then after front links it ended up 116.5. Hope this helps.
Pics for reference

I would imagine your numbers would be close to mine because the similar setup and parts used. About the only difference would be the amount of rear stretch.

|g23crawler||Atlas showed up today, should be picking up the LS1 tonight.|

Will do, I need to watch some videos or something on how to use the calculator correctly lol.
Atlas went into production last week, should be showing up this week. LS1 will be done this week also.
Decided to go snowboarding Wednesday till Sunday so wont be able to pick stuff up probably till next Monday.

Post it up if you can. It would be interesting to see how the position of the upper frame side mounts impact the anti-squat.
Enjoying your build. Looking forward to seeing the engine work you have planned.
