Hmmm...even the smoke/powder residue off of the tacks looks like you are welding galvanized metal.

OH WOWZERS! Definitely need to get that moved, re-reouted, or something. What axle is that up front? It looks really thin in the pic.

Your steering linkage will hit the passenger side spring when you "try" to turn right. And even if it somehow doesn't, you'd have MASSIVE bumpsteer with the draglink at that angle.

You need to do a crossover steering conversion when you do an SOA (Spring Over Axle) conversion.

BJ's Offroad sells a turnkey kit or there is plenty of info on the 'net on how to do a CORRECT DIY version.

This is exactly what I was referring to. You should experience this on-road but will for sure find out off-road. Either way its bad news and you could end up a lot worse than !! A cross-over set up is a really good idea. I bought another set up but have heard good stuff about BJs kit.
