I bent the tab that was rubbing on full turn with some flex out. I still have a little rub at locked to the left and max flexed but little enough It should never be a real problem. I thought I would take a couple of pics while I was testing to post.
The sway bars are way 2 limiting in the front, I will be looking for a way to make a quick disconect for them in the near future.
I don't think I have a picture of the Poorboy way I made my disconnects, I can take a picture in the morning when I get home from work.
Basically what I did was got a thick wingnut that thread onto the lower swaybar uprights, and a small cotter pin. Drill a hole through the upright the same size as the cotter pin, (after you attach the swaybar to the uprights and tighten the wingnut), in a position that it holds the wingnut from coming loose.
When you got to the trails just remove the pin and wingnut from each side and then tie the swaybar up out of the way. I put the spacers and wingnut and pin back on the upright so they don't get lost.
I've had my swaybar like this since the week I got my truck, and haven't had any issues with it yet. Going to get some quick disconnects for it sometime in the future and get rid of the swaybar drop brackets.
Edit: Here's a pic of what it is like. Not that close of a shot, I'll get a better one in the morning.

On the note of modifying my upper control arm. I did not grind it i ended up bending the lip out instead turned out really clean It is hard to tell I changed it even if you know. On the quick disconnect i think that is a better method then I was going to use I was going to make a sleeve for the center section and section it there, but I think the method you show above is much easier and cleaner thanks for the info.
Started fabricating a set of sliders-steps for my truck after work today, I am trying to build them to fast though lol. I want to get them far enough I can use them this weekend even if I don't get time to clean them up all the way. I am going to go into work early tomorrow and spend a hour or 2 on them in the morning see if I can get them far enough, If I do I will have them on this weekend. If I cant get them done in the morning though I will not have time as I am heading out Not long after I get off work tomorrow, Was going to take a pic with my phone before I came home but my battery's were 2 low. I am making them at work to use the welder.
Well the white ram is now a official rock hugger. The bottom of the passenger door has plenty of damage to prove it. The door still works but it is in really rough shape, Of I haven't posted pics to show the rock sliders i have added to the truck eather, to bad they don't protect from rocks in the side of muddy banks you slide into lol, I will try to get up some pics of the damage later.
