Ignore the drop pitmann arm for now. If you are Spring Over Axle (A type of lift, the long arm of the yj world) you need cross over steering.
No Ifs Ands Or Butts About It.
Better pictures would be helpful.

Yj's carry alot of traits over from the cj's, the last of the old style jeeps. It feels like a jeep, rides like a jeep and even smells like a jeep. The yj was the first wrangler, and it had square headlights, so it set the standard, all wranglers are supost to have square headlights, the rest are pos ha ha!! Good trade!!!

The new pic sheds some light. I thought it was SOA. For now I would put drp ptm but the cross over is deff way to go if you have the dough.

Very nice btw.

i would agree with the crossover steering bc your drag link wil hit the spring when you flex the suspension. im thinking about doing it when i do a soa conversion and i was looking at the one that rustys offroad has. ive gotten a few things from him and liked it

Not only cross over steering but it would be a good choice to swap out that d35 for something like the 8.8

Are you saying it has been swapped or your planning to swap it out? If it has been swapped your profile doesn't show it.

Finishing a 4.0 Cyl.head swap, Just got an AX-15 NP231J combo to replace the busted t-case and craptacular BA10/5. Adding Nutter bypass. Probably more to come before it is back as a DD!
