Lift options

Have a 91 yj that I bought a few months back and I am trying to decide if I want to do a spring over axle conversion or if I want to just buy a lift kit. Are there some experienced guys out there that could give me some pointers or advice?

Take some time and do some research to see what fits your needs and more importantly your skills and wallet. Although a SOA might seem cheap and simple it is neither of those compared to a conventional lift kit. Read through the link below.

Very well said, Daddyjeep. Lots of people out there that think its the easiest way to get a Jeep up in the air, and it is by far the easiest or the cheapest.
