Planning my build

So i've been running my YJ for a couple of years - now it's time to take it to the gym! i have already bought some 35" coopers and replacement schackle kit.

Reading through these forums for a while now and given me much inspiration and appreciation of various builds, so i'm planning on using the D44's from a XJ but leave as SOA has anyone done this...? I'm also planning on 2-3 inch lift this should give me the clearence I need shouldn't it?

also on the shopping list is NP231 and high steer kit.

Probably basic stuff for you chaps across the water, but any direction would be greatly received.

3 inch springs on a SOA is a little tall, I run 1.5 and zero lift shackles. still need to move the perches for the rear spring. and a ladder bar, cv drive line, relocate e-brake cables or use longer ones. slip yoke eliminator. one inch motor mount lifts help the drive line angle.

What size tire are you wanting to run? I run a 2.5 spring SOA, 1 inch shackle, and 1 inch body and clear 36's just fine
