Before anyone else chimes in, I am going to recommend you read about soa until your eyes bleed. I am planning on going that way this winter and I have already exhausted every piece of information I can find.

Alright, I hate to hijack but I have a few questions as well. I have read and read and so on. My original plan was to stay sua and cut, trim, raise and anything else I could do to get 35's but I was talked into a soa so build plans changed.

I've been collecting parts (stock springs, sye, 8.8 already installed, tires and wheels), I need to get or build some things (anti-wrap bar, spring perches, shock mounts, u-bolts and plates) and some things I'm going to get during the swap (driveline, shocks, brake lines, sway bar disconnects). I'm probably missing things in my lists but it's a general list. Feel free to add something if I forgot.

My biggest concern is my steering. I wanted to keep my budget low-er (highly unlikely) so a full high steer kit is in my budget. I saw JB4X4 has there raised steering bracket for a crossover steering, more in my budget but was curious about the crossover. I've also been reading on the WJ knuckle swap but I have warn's dana 30 manual hub conversion and I wasn't sure if it would work with the WJ knuckles and rotors. I've been searching these questions but coming up with conflicting answers so I thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

Not to mention Anti-Wrap, that's a good $250 right there.

I would say let your eyes heal once they bleed and then read till they bleed some more. I want to do this as well I have been researching here and there for a year and probably have atleast another year before I will even be close to ready to do it. I will be doing research on it until I have nightmares about it.

an your already talking about skimping... the comment on teh tcase drop....

said itbefore and I will say it again, skimp or cut corners on a SOA and you end up with a POS jeep that you dont want to drive....

your on the right track mostly, just keep going down the right track...

if your gonna do it ....do it... if your thinking already of saving money and cutting corners STOP now.... stay SUA....

@NICK....

your steering is the ONE place you dont skimp out or cut corners... I went rocky road highster kit... yep its pricey most are, cost of going SOA....

and even with all the reading, once you get it apart you will run into issues that are just cause........ I bet you I spent another $500 bucks opn **** like new ubolts, couple body mount bushing were gone, new brake lines as a couple beokre... etc.... it adds upi fast, the main stuff is the easy stuff usually.... its the other **** you run into

I didnt see anyone post you need a new rear driveshaft to.....
