Bob, the weight of the oil is minimal, so I'd put the oil in the upright, leaving room on the back for real ballast.

Made some progress today. I finally pulled the trigger and had my plates plasma cut. Luckily I met a guy that does a lot of aftermarket and custom stuff for Jeeps/offroad builds. After talking to him we struck a deal and I got him to plasma cut all of my plates, including 2 bucket end plates, 2 bucket ribs, 4 post base/post-cylinder plates, 4 arm mid-plates, 4 post-arm tabs, 4 arm-bucket tabs, 2 cylinder-arm tabs, 2 cylinder-bucket tabs, 12 cylinder pin collars. Best $100 I've spent in a while!!
Also, here is the updated side profile of the loader:

Thanks for the feedback... I'll have to look into that. I've already cut my bucket sides and interior ribs so I'm locked in on the bucket shape but I might be able to do something with the cylinder tab location.
