Also, I think I'll need to relocate the upper rear shock mounts down below the top of the frame over the rear axle. That will allow me to get the rear of the burb body closer to the frame in the back. The rear rise measurements I've taken on both the 2WD burb frame and the 4WD Av frame shows the Av having about a 2" higher rise over the rear axle.

Are you fabbing up body mounts yet?

I will be using a Tahoe gas tank as well. I will measure again but I'm pretty sure the shock mounts will clear the burbs inner fenders if you go 2" above the spare tire.

Not yet, I think it'll be this weekend, I had to do some welding in my trailer.
