I think im going to move my front axle forward about 8" to improve approach angle a bit and help the wheel base out a little. Has anyone ever tried it? I can move the steering gear box forward about 5"s and the spring buckets forward about 8". what do you guys think? I know i will have to get a longer drive shaft and cut the fenders but thats cool with me.

Good thing for us fullsize owners is, jeepers are stretching theirs to get to our wheelbase. 102-106" is about perfect for most (!) trails. I would be more concerned with the departure angle, than the approach angle

I prepped mine to move the spring tower foreward to where the front shock and track bar are mounted. I just have to fabricate new track bar mounts. I don't have to move the gear box but then I am only moving the spring tower right up to the box. My only concern for when I actually do it is wether or not the drag link is going to bind. Of course heim joint steering would solve this. I would like to see photo's if you go 8". You have to box the frame all the way foreward don't you? Probably be good to fab a crossmember at the frame horns for strength.
