SOA lift + 37's

Few pics of what a YJ looks like with a 1.5" SOA lift and 37's. BTW the rear is getting stretched out soon. Planning on using XJ springs in the rear to stretch it about 4.5in.





Moab 2013 Pics, drove my jeep 1030 miles there. Wheeled it and then drove it home.


Hells Gate


Love my new steering bars.


Not bad flex with tires at full street pressure.

Bummer..... I'm moving soon and will lose the ability to wheel with my crew soon too. Might try joining another club when I move though.

Ive tried a couple clubs. One on this forum, I meet some nice people, and wheel with them on occasion. But over all the runs the club puts are no where near challenging for my jeep.. I joined another club that was mostly Cherokees, first run I went on with them I was helping one giy get unstuck in the snow, and the rest of the group left us. Thats not cool to leave people behind withere in your group or not.

I feel for you man, you'll regret getting rid of your jeep very quickly though.

Hey banks316 I read your Jeep profile and saw you were running d30 and d44 combo. I really want 37s but I've read that parts wear too quick on the d30 even when upgraded. How's it holding up for you?

Mine held up great, only thing I wish I did different was use 4.88 gears instead of 4.56. Hubs are the only real part that wears out for me. Hubs last around 10k miles or so. Even if I went with a Rubicon Dana 44, or a G2 Dana 44 you still use the same hubs. Also as you see I was running 30 spline molly shafts. Same size the Dana 44 uses just chromolly. She was a great jeep I hope her nee owner takes good care of her. I just sold it today.

That's what I was trying to say. We could meet somewhere and wheel together so you dont have to drive as far. Looks like you will have to get your other rig going since you sold that one now.
