I logged most of my 8.8 install and SOA install (did at the same time) with pictures (and costs) here:

|JOEDOG223||I've been wondering too and I know I'd need a SYE and cv shaft. I'm on a 2.5 now with a 3 inch body. I found this kit/setup that I'd probably use to get me started. http://www.rocky-road.com/yj-soa.html|

My set up consisted of 3" lift spring on top of axle, hi steer, sye, cv drive line, brake lines, shocks.
It performed great. But it cost me more than the jeep did in the first place.
Would I do it again? Yes. But after axle swaps.

|Allen512||Very expensive lift if done the right way. I love mine, I can't wait to get the driveshaft and sye in so I can actually drive it.|

|1st87yj||that's almost word for word what he told me. Thanks!|

yes.. is about axle wrap not power.. a traction bar/ladder bar is a good idea with a SOA lift.

|1st87yj||I have been wondering the same thing. that step by step thread is great. someone told me that you should install arms/brackets on rear axle for strength. not sure if its needed with my 2.5. correct me if im wrong|

Thinking about doing a soa on my yj, is there anything I should know?
What are the downsides of doing this vs a regular lift
