where is the selection for SOA, that is the only lift you should be thinking about, the others are just a waste of money

Do brand new stock waggies or find boneyard ones. I am using waggys from the boneyard up front and brand new ones from Jc whitney in the rear with a 1 inch body. The jeep is high, the 37s fit no problem and the 38.5 should also clear with ease. I think 4044s would give to much lift. I almost wanna go down in lift alittle since I can barely get in the thing and Im 6 foot. Just my opinion but get the extra wheel base if you can. Im rocking a smooth 100.25.........

35s are probably the biggest I can afford until I finish college.

hell, if that's the case, jsut go JC whitney HD YJ packs on all 4 corners SOA.....you'll clear 35's with ease. (with a little trimming plus the body lift you are set to run 37's...)

run that, take the body lift off and sell it on JU to make up for your new drivelines. the HD springs and tj flares and you'll be set.
