move axle forward 1`` ????

I am going to make a homeade reverse shackle for my jeep. Would it be okay to move the axle 1``forward. It looks like the tire is pretty closer to the fender.

Re: move axle forward 1`` ????

Most commercial ones that are sold do move the axle 1 inch forward. So yes, it is fine and recommended. Do not forget to change your front driveshaft to one with more slip travel or you will buy a transfer case also. Mountain Off Road sells plates that moves your axle forward too if the fabrication part is not possible on the mounts.
