Anyone have a suggestion for a chain guide/tensioner for a 2x8 big hit set up? Too much chain slap without one right now. Thanks.

Your front derailleur is your chain guide. For tension maybe run a clutch derailleur but hard to pull tjat off with 8 speed. You can use a shimano 10 speed derailleur with clutch matched to a sram 9 speed shifter and 9 speed cassette. Or look at old school chain tensioners, you can probably still find one even though hardly anyone uses em anymore. Not sure you can run one with front derailleur though

Great setup. Love the fork and hammerschmidt and paint job.
