I stopped by a couple times this weekend and Tom explained the math, figuring, and gozintas that are involved.
Pretty simple once you get all the numbers dialed in, but you can really fawk it up if you change one thing just a little bit.

Due to traveling the last few weeks, progress has been slow !

Finally unpacked my tools and began working on the jeep last night. about a week ago the motor was dropped off along with a ton of other parts. For the most part it was purely supported by the engine hoist. Last night Becca went to bed early, so i began working on the rear link cross-member. the cross-member will be removable, to make transfer case removal possible.

The plan for this weekend is,

- fully mount cross-member
- mount lower links
- Mount rear ori hoops
-Start trans cross-member

Going to have a separate cross member to hold the transmission mount and run a flat skid between them? And I assume you checked, but those front lower links don't hit the body mount at full bump, right? Looks like this thing is coming together really nicely. Well done.
