Spring over axle. It's mostly for the YJ guys who's leafs normally mount below the axle. By relocating the mounts to the top side, a YJ can achieve a near 5" lift with few other parts.

AW.

Charlie is not seeing if he can do the Spring over axle. Don't confuse him like that.

Airborne, XJ's and KJ's are still considered SWB's.

XJ's require an SYE when lifting just as much as a YJ or TJ do.

KJ's don't run SYE's much because most don't lift higher than 1-2" thanks to IFS.

Geez!
