Duke79 I had a SOA on mine with 2.5"springs and Revolver shackles and a 2"BL. Loved it, had narrow track axles with a 4.27 gear ratio welded up. I ran 35X13.50 Mickey Thompson Bias Ply Claws and they barely stuck out past my fender flares.
It was like a ATV with a roof.

Wouldn't recomend but I never had any sway bars or a high steering setup and drove it daily for 3 years, no death wobble, no uneasy feeling at highway speeds.

Dempsey I'd recommend staying sua and going with a yj axle conversion. Old man emu makes a nice spring. Rides very nice.

I have a 2.5" ome spring with a 1" body lift and run 33" tires on my cj7.

What size tire do you have now?

harleydragon spring over allows you to keep your stock springs which usually ride a lot better than aftermarket,lifted springs IMO

Ibuildembig IMO SOA is the only way

Just remember to save some extra cash for high steer and a trac bar. Spring overs always end up costing more in the long run...

aelwero SOA (Spring Over Axle) will greatly reduce the road worthiness, but it's extra cheap and is good for off roading. Most lifts will also reduce road handling to a lesser degree, and ANY means of lifting it will raise the center of gravity making it less safe cornering and such.

35's can cause issues if you got an Iron Duke 4 banger (but it's doable), and on a CJ, can actually make it less capable off roading if you don't have the torque to power that much weight over obstacles.

Nobody can really answer that question for you, because it's really a personal preference sort of thing, and based on what you have now, how much you want to spend, and most importantly, how you plan to use your jeep.

Make some jeep friends, go on a few trail runs, and you should figure out pretty quickly what the right way to go is.
