keep in mind that a soa on a stock jeep will add 5.4 inches of lift .
and if it is done right will need longer shocks and brake lines and that is
the minimum but necessary list. ( yes you can cut off and relocate the shock mounts so that you can use stock length shocks but then you have the same
travel as a stock unlifted jeep because your shocks in the end determine the limits of travel.)
if you do a soa with a 4 inch leaf lift you will need a major list of mods. to make a safe ride, but with lots of money or know how it can be done easy.
So just decide what your wanting to spend in money and time and have fun getting there.

rubicon express has a close to complete kit. Youll want there spring pads shocks 1.5inch lift soa springs, need to find a high steer kit, a sye, a cv shaft, hope your good at welding, now would be the time to do a axle swap if not done already, extended brakelines or the cheaper way is to relocate stock (if in good enough shape) to the bottom of the frame instead of the top. And some kind of track bar to eliminate axle wrap.

Wouldn't you need some kind of lader bar to prevent axel wrap? Track bar is to stop side shift. I could be wrong.

Bad habit I call them both track bars Then all you need to do is get the shaft extended. The rubicon express soa springs are realll nice. Theyre designed specifically for soa. They have just about the same amount of arc as a 4 inch lift sua spring but the eyes are reveresed. This will give the jeep a much smoother ride and more flex and the life of the spring will be much longer. Also you wont bend a spring either because this way the spring doesnt go into a negative arch. But remember shocks play an important role in the ride too. Skyjacker hydros are said to be some of the smoothest riding shocks out there. Good luck with the project. If you have more questions pm me. This is the setup im looking to get ive been researching it for about a year now. I know obsessive but its a passion. Good luck.
Ian
