|devilrmk||You can always pull one of the shorter springs out of the pack to soften them and drop it a bit. I had to do that with mine.|

|ziloh22||man im really debating doin this.. i already have 2 axles with SOA setup..|

You can run 35's with a soa+2 with no fender issues, 37's with a little fender work.
Soa+2 is. Borderline too tall.

Mine was 5.5" with a D30 and Ford 8.8 and another 1.5" using Rubicon Express RE1445 springs, for a total of 7" of lift.

|jeeperthing||Doing a SOA doesn't it give you like 4" lift?|

|Ibuildembig||I mocked rear pinion angle, front is stock. Rear is approx 2 degrees below driveshaft centerline.|
|06-25-2013 03:50 PM|
|amerdt4||Did you mock the pinion angle at full droop or sitting on all 4 wheels? Did you set straight on or a few degrees under to compensate for torque wrap under load ?|

|amerdt4||If I cut a piece out , what would I have to reweld? I was thinking just the lip of the skid plate|

|yj93ben||Big, how ya doin'. Haven't been on here in a while. I see your step by step is still at the top. Finally got that 8.8 ARB 4.56 in my YJ. What do you think?|
|06-23-2013 08:47 AM|
|Ibuildembig||No it's not even close|
|06-23-2013 07:26 AM|
|amerdt4||*I meant the skid plate|
|06-23-2013 07:26 AM|
|amerdt4||I tried to read back through to find this answer but may have missed it . Sorry if it was already answer but , did you have to modify the transfer case to accommodate the front drive shaft at full flex ?|

|06-19-2013 10:18 PM|
|devilrmk||Agreed. I average 3 days a week in mine at about 75 miles per day|

|JeepGirl94||My husband has been wanting to do SOA on my Jeep to give me a bigger lift, but was told not to since it's my DD. Does it make that much of a difference safety wise?|

Then I think I will copy what ibuildembig but with 3 bushing joints made from what available in my local market.
And no sye for me will roll the pinion angle and drop tc a bit doing it on 8.25

You can make your own for around $100 (or less). I ended up getting the Mountain Offroad one and like it.

|megax05||so the wishbone is a must for SOA? cuz i dont do heavy off road only sand dunes and beach fun or its doable without it?|

I'm about 3/4 done with the spring over.
What I did:
Purchased the SYE, Rubicon Express SOA kit and a custom drive shaft from Adams Driveline in Henderson NV. GREAT people to work with and the prices can't be beat!
Welcome to Adams Driveshaft and Off Road | Henderson, NV
Got the High Steer kit from Rocky Road. Very nice design!!!
YJ High Steer: Jeep YJ Hight Steer, Knuckle Over steering system
Got the Ford 8.8 install kit from kNOW where 2jeep. Most complete kit on the planet!!! NICE people to work with.
kNOw Where 2Jeep Complete Ford 8.8 Install Kit For '91-'95 Wrangler YJ
Got a Ford 8.8 with 4.10 gears and limited slip from a Mustang supply house in San Jose CA for $295
Pro Comp 15 X 9 black steel wheels and BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2's in 35 12.50 15 from Americas Tire.
I know I could have done this cheaper but the kits just make it easier.
There are some things that don't seem to get mentioned that you need to think about.
Bump stop relocation. I used 2x2 square tubing to move them down 2". Be careful when you weld them in not to burn up brake line, fuel lines or electrical lines.
The trans skid plate hits the front drive shaft before max droop. I had to cut out a small amount of the skid plate under the shaft for clearance. Also this drive line might be to short now, I'm still not sure.
The new front brake lines are long and there doesn't seem to be a good way to strap them so as to protect them.
Same problem with the electrical line from the vacuum 4x4 selector on the front axle. No good way to get it out of harms way. I have the cable operated system and securing the cable is a problem as well. At some time I'll replace the D30 axles with one piece and fix some of this.
When its all done I'll try to get some pic's. I'm also going to get ahold of Ibuildembig and see about getting him to build me one of his anti wrap setups.
Next is 4.88 gears and Ox lockers front and rear. After that is a new motor. I haven't decided on this yet but I'd realy like to go with a Cumins 4BT.
