Jag IFS to frame measurements needed!

This is for you guys that have a jag ifs mounted.
I am tired of waiting for F1 fenders to eyeball the correct location for the front end to be at.
Again my truck is a '49 and the jag front is a '79 XJ6
I need the measurements from (somewhere on) the frame to (somewhere on) the IFS
I don't want to just eyeball it...The centering is simple.

I am looking for more than one persons input, just to see consistency.

there are several frame holes that will help with accuracy. I have seen some previous posts on this but don't remember any good solid measurements. Thank You in advance. we can take this to PM if ya want to, but it would be a help in the future for others.

Sort of.. but I asked for the axle location. now I'm asking the jag ifs guys about their measurements to the IFS insted of the axle centerline. If you look at the other thread from the other day, it is turning into some degree of uncertainty about what really is centerline...does it include spring shackle movement and blah, blah, blah. so now I am trying to get info from the jag guys. Know what I'm sayin? thanks for your help on the other post!

Jeff; What measurement are you wanting? I put a 78 Jag IFS and IRS under my 50f1. Let me know and I'll try to get them for you. RUSTY

Hi Jeff and Nicolle;
I mounted mine soft mounted. It's 14 and a 1/4 inches from the bottom edge of the back of the radiator cross member to the center of the back mount on the jag. You have to drill two holes on each side of your frame for the mounts to bolt to. I don't know what engine you are going to use. I put a tune port injected 350 in mine. I bought huger headers for it so I could get past the steering on the jag, but only by about a 1/2 inch. I was afraid it would put to much heat on the steering box so I ordered fender well headers. I will have a full front tilt on the truck. I also put the Jag IRS under my truck. I hope to have it on the road by the end of the summer. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know. RUSTY

Thttps://www.ford-trucks.com/user_gall...&albumid=30130 This is the same thread I used to install mine. Except I did not cut my frame. It has all the measurements you need to install the ifs. The frame is the same as yours. Hope this answered all you ?'s If not let me know and I'll see if I can help. RUSTY
