Soa ground to tub measurement

Im just wondering what the measurement is from level ground to the bottom of the tub on a Yj with soa and any spring from stock to 4". please include tire size and picture of the jeep if you have one.

Just for comparisonís sake: 28" to the tub, SOA with RE 1.5" springs, on 33's.




But it's more than just tub height. A body lift changes that (which you didn't specify), and the t-case skid and frame are lower than the tub.

~28" from the rocker to my garage floor with RE 1.5" reverse eye SOA leafs, 1" body lift (to clear the Atlas). Tires are 37" Red Label Krawlers @ ~7.5psi.

Front spring mounts are not stock - they have been raised ~5/8" front and back (which lowers my Jeep ~5/8"). I fabbed and outboarded them myself.




This is what I'm talking about as far as being outboarded. They are not finished in these pics, but you get the idea.

I want to go soa but want the same height that I'm at now which is why I want to know where people are sitting with different springs to see what I need to buy.
