I am about to do a SOA conversion on my 95 YJ and am also about to order tires. I would really like to put 35x12.5s on her but don't know if they will fit any advice would be great!

They should but rims are another factor to think about because of the width. Your rims need atleast 3.5-3.75" back spacing. And how worn are your stock springs? If they are to worn 35"s may rub.

Yeah you will rub them offroad. I have 33's with about +1.5" on SOA and almost rub mine at full flex. I would only put them on if you are going to add maybe 1.5" of lift to it. Maybe the Rubicon SOA leafs.

Can't see them. Maybe you can post a better one later. If not no big deal. Those springs look like they have a little arch to them....what are they?

First post here guys, I just got a 95 yj jeep I've been slowly working on. Might be a stupid question but how much does an SOA conversion cost?

Planning on doing it my self I'm looking at around 3-350 plus a lot of welding..... I think
Thats how I did mine. Good luck with that. Lol

I don't see how it is possible for less than $1000 unless you cut some corners. Springs, sye, steering solution, rear driveshaft, shocks, brake lines, and traction bar. Im sure I'm forgetting something too.
