By the time you do the high steer setup with all the tie rod ends ( go one ton) DOM tubeing, Knuckle machining, Steering Arms you will be looking at close to $700-$900

A SYE and CV Drive shaft can run you any where from $450-800

New Spring Perches/Shocks/Extended Brake Lines/U-Bolts/ect. can run you between $300 - up

Then after all that and you want bigger tires you'll need to regear, gear setups run between $600-$1000 for front and rear.

Will have to something with the rear axle because it wont hold up to the bigger rubbers. 8.8 or Dana 44 - $200 up

Not trying to steer you away but just letting you know that if you want everything done correctly and safely look at realisticaly spending upwards of $2000. It really is the little things that get you and you have to decide if it is practical for you.

Good Luck

Search the FAQ section for a compiled list of items to consider for an SOA..

I agree and I am running the same springs SOA.

I came across these two Wranglers about 25 yards apart on the same trail in Moab and left me worrying about my rear axle for the rest of the trip and was enough for me to swap in a D44. As you can see they are not huge tires by any means.. Dana35

In other words it will cost you a ton of money. i was planning on doing this with a ford 9" and D44 front but i decided it was too much money for me. i got the axle and tires and was on my way but my budget was 3000 for all of the following-
-gears. alone they are 200-400 per axle. then they need to be installed. thats usually about 100-200 each and thats if you dont need a different carrier.
-axles (and rebuilding them piece by piece if you want them to be nice and less maintenance) maybe 200 for an axle but plan about 500 for brake lines, brakes u joins, seals and bearings, paint, perches and more stuff.
-the high steer that ive heard good things about is JB4x4 bracket and drag link. 220
-JB super short SYE (ordered mine 10 mins ago) 325
-Tom woods drive shaft. 200
Thats about 2500 if you dont include wheels and tires. i got 36's 50% used off craigslist for 275 and just sold them for 350. bargin for used stuff you'll save money on axles and maybe tires

Since a ride that tall is on the more extreme end of lifting a Jeep and the OP gave no indication of why he chose to do that other than he already had the springs, offering concern is appropriate. He also never came back in subsequent replies to indicate he was already aware of the concerns. TMI is better than rolling over.
if you didnt read before you clicked this is a technical forum. not a "well i think its going to be too ..." forum. thats wat general discussion is for. no matter how stupid you think this is, its technical.
