Need pics of YJ swap brackets

On the rear spring mount, how far forward does the front eye need to come from stock?

Does anyone have a template of their brackets?

FYI...I want the wheel to be centered in the wheelwell when using stock YJ 5 leaf packs.

Re: Need pics of YJ swap brackets

You really want to move your axle forward. or big meats will run the wheel wells! SPOA with 33x10.50's mine was VERY close to rubbing even with the axle moved forward the (1.75" i think the TT kit moves it. And if you got S/R you need it even more as the axle moves backwards as you stuff the tire.

I wasn't clear enough. This is for the rear axle.

Re: Need pics of YJ swap brackets

You'll need to make the new holes as close as possible to the stock ones. And in the same plane of course. But watch out because I made mine a little to close and had to trim the stock tabs to allow for the YJ spring eye to fit in there. Might not make sense now but it will if you look at it closely. I wanted the rear axle as far back as possible and having done it this way, I still need to drill the perch and move it back about 3/4" or so. Hope that helps [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Need pics of YJ swap brackets

Do you have pictures?

From what I gather, you did not center your wheel in the wheelwell. Is this a correct statement?

Rockrat, thanks again (PBB post).

Did you mimic trail tough dimensions? Theirs looks similar.
