denisbaldwin 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

Its the only way to get more than 4" of lift without sacrificing ride quality. Anythin over 4" requires most of what is needed for a soa anyway.

Done right, its the best there is.

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.
I'm waitin on my driveline now. I'm runnin soa plus 2.5 inch springs gonna do sye and cv shaft. Switched to crossover steering f-350 shocks I also added a hijack lift tube fenders 35's and rims to the build

What's necessary for the soa?

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

Spring over?

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
