I drive my SOA YJ 50 miles roundtrip everyday. YJs were meant to be SOA!
Axle wrap can be an issue, but that's usually only off road and on steps or when the Jeep is pretty near verticle. With 33s, I had some wheel hop which I'm sure was mostly axle wrap but not enough to even bother fixing. Picking a slightly different line would always get me thru. With 35s I've had to add traction bars and I have no axle wrap, but I still have some wheel hop. Wheel hop is a strange beast. I plan to add shocks, but as we all know, that's treating the symptom, not the cause.
