    These easiest way to figure that out is get everything installed in the jeep, slide the axle under the jeep and point the pinion at the tcase yoke. I did a few years ago, the difference between yours and mine is I had a belly up plate, so my tcase sits higher, better to mock it up and see what angle yours needs. But 12 degrees rings a bell.
    WARNING! I am about to do something really fawking STUPID!!!!!!

    Exactly what I told him to do... He didn't seem to like that answer... Considering he is using an adjustable long arm he has room to adjust after the fact.

    Flat, just like the truss.



    This is why I said to bring it to the shop and do it when I did mine....
