I don't have any pics or measurements to offer at the moment, but I can share some knowledge.
Don't rely on other people's measurements. The height of your suspension, length of your trackbar, height of your axle side bracket, and angle of your steering linkage all have an effect on how your trackbar needs to be set up and are different for everybody... this is why they sell adjustable trackbars for lifted vehicles. Your trackbar needs to be absolutely parallel with your axle when viewed from above, and it needs to be absolutely parallel with your drag link when viewed from the front. If those angles aren't matched up, you'll end up with death wobble and/or bump steer.
As long as those angles are good though, all you need to worry about is the design of the frame side mount. DO NOT skimp out on the strength and amount of material in this mount... if it breaks, you will no longer be able to turn your wheels, and instead you'll just be moving the vehicle back and forth over your front axle. It's kinda funny to watch when it doesn't happen to you, but it really sucks when it does. The way you design your mount will have a lot to do with how far down the mount has to go from the frame in order to match the trackbar angle to the angle of the drag link.
I'm off to bed, but I have pictures to dig up and post when I wake up later to help show what I'm trying to explain, in case any of it doesn't make sense.
