Didn't have a clue those were interchangeable so to speak but that's defiantly good for you!

There not interchangeable, I used a Artec JK to TJ conversion truss on the front and I've got to weld new perches and shock mounts on the rear axle once I get it under the xj and centered... There also 5 inches wider then a xj axle that's why I had to go with the JK wheels to get more wheel offset.... It's been alot of work getting ready to put them under...

I hear ya there Jon. Done a lot of work on my axles to get them ready to go under, and I don't have the benefit of being able to buy a truss for the front. By the way, I watched that vid and I like the idea for the sliders. I need to build something like that for the back of the XJ. The wife likes to cook when we travel and setting up a kitchen for her is a lot of work. I want to build a modular roll out kitchen that only takes minutes to set up and take down.

That's the same reason Missy got a big kitchen in the teardrop, Cooking is her favorite part of camping.

I plan on a modular design that will fit the XJ, pickup and a trailer yet to be built. I figure that ought to cover it. We like to camp where there is no one else around

You picked the hardest end to do last Jon. Those front ends can be a killer to get just right
