that looks like a stock truck pan

look into a ls1 f body pan with the improved racing baffle I run it in on my 6.0 in my buggy. if you run crazy angles over fill it by 1 litre and your good. you will need the ls1 windage tray and pick up tube if you go the route. I got mine off ls1tech.com in the for sale section.

had to run an ls1 pan to keep a flat belly

Isn't your upper link at the frame end for the front going the wrong way?

Noticed that as well
Have you cycled the susp to see if that's going to bind
As long as it doesn't bind should work fine
Never seen one mounted that way though

Looks weird but it works great. I cycled the front and have full 14" of travel both sides. The problems I did have though were the panhard bar clearing the crank pulley under full compression. The drag link is very tight to the frame under full stuff on the passenger side. For this reason I am going to c notch the bottom of the frame for clearance. The 2.5 Fox coilovers very tight but they just clear the frame by 1/4" under full droop. We did a quick test for articulation in the shop and got 44" under the front tire. No bad for a Jeep. I have to say though my Bronco could do 40" on leaf springs.

most 3 link jeep kits run it that way, if not all of them

Looks like you started with off the shelf motor mounts, but the later pics show something more custom. Can you explain what you started with and finished with?

The mounts that I bought ended up being in the way of the upper 3rd link when you would stuff the pass side.
