Springover Lift??

How hard, or easy is a springover to do. How does it handle, how much lift will it give you?

A springover isn't really that hard to do if you are familiar with a welder and torch/grinder. The hard part is getting the steering corrected, and making sure that you don't have any spring wrap. It will net you about 5.5". If you haven't at least seen a spring over conversion, then you should leave it to a professional or someone that has done this before.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Your bio says you have 6" of lift to run 33's.
I have a 3.5" spring lift, 1" body lift, 5/8" shackle lift and run 37's (I have tube fenders and a TJ cut rear well opening). The key to having a good working spring under system is to make sure you have the right springs, a hanger flip, and the right shocks.
Not all spring under systems ride like crap. Spring over requires a fair amount of engineering and still isn't for everyone. An SOA system will usually allow more front end hop while climbing than a SUA system. A few guys in my club that had had SOA for years went back to SUA. On an SOA system you have to have some sort of anti-wrap bar to prevent your springs from bending. There are many kits on the market and it's not a complicated installation. But overall, there's not really anything gained by a SOA compared to a decent SUA system.

Thanks, this answered evrything that I needed. I think I may go with a 1 inch body lift and then leave it at that. A buddy of mine with a cherokee wanted to find out as well, I think that this would be better for he than I. Can you send some pic's so I can see how 37's look on your jeeo?

Thanks!!
