I'd say no, not really a good way to do it.
It will also start messing with coping angles and tube lengths.

King shocks worth it?

At this point I have a guy wanting to trade me a set of King Smoothie 12" shocks for a set of tires.
I'm running "white tube" shocks on the front and old Rancho 5000 at mostly stock (stupid) angle...

This is what I run, pump with no tank.
Have a pop off and pressure switch but run an always open chuck so those are just safety if turning on before the air line is hooked up or later if I hook a...

When I bought mine it had/has a rebuilt title. Not exactly sure what happened but the back corner has about 1/4” or some of bondo in the driver rear and one front fender that had less rust.
For $500...

Looks like the WJ has a 6.5" long pitman arm. The stock YJ would be .75" short for your WJ knuckle conversion.
So a Waggy ~7" will probably be the easiest or one of the 4x4 shop (know WFOconcepts...

Is the trans suppose to be solid mounted to the crossmember? Does this add more stress/leverage to the trans not being in the "triangle" mounting style configuration (factory)?
Or is the crossmember...

1.75 is actually a little on the small side, 2” would be better for the weight of most Jeeps once armored up.
As a side note, 1.75 just barely fits between the dash and door.

On the other hand,...

They are more or less spring bushings but you can buy the bushing and tube from just about any 4x4 store around.
You can also just buy bushings and cut tubing to match as needed.

About post 61 is where the frame mounts come in. Looks like about post 40 is where the cage begins.

My understanding is:
A rig that will see street time needs the bushings. The road vibration/harmonics are hard on solid mounted cages.
Trail rig, do what you want.

I’d go with a 2.5" lift and stock (4" eye to eye) shackles.
OME seem to be one of the favorites but also a bit on the spendy side too.

This is ~1/16 on the cage and only a sun/weather screen not intended for a intrusion protection in a rollover.

Like everyone has mentioned above, it’s to get the length needed for shocks.
If you add a longer shock, it adds ~2” (extended, 1” of body length) for every 1” of shock travel. 14” travel will be...

I was in a similar position and didn’t like how high the SOA made my Jeep, especially the rear with it sitting higher making a “stink bug” look.

Ended up “fenching” the rear spring hangers and...

Actually ssyj94 is the only tread I’ve found that is about the same as I want to do.
Want to stay narrow because there are some trails that have width restrictions around here.

3 Link on less than FS axles

At this point I’m looking at a 3-link front with ORIs. So I’d like to see pictures of links (3 or 4) on stock width axles. Not interested in radius arms.
Now the trick is I want to use the Waggy...

Inquired a few places that specialize in Isuzu and came up with the same answer, "nobody make the correct bearing."
