Yj One Ton Lift Options

OK... I currently have a '91 YJ with a SOA lift, sitting on the stock axles and 33's. In the near future, I intend to swap over to 1 ton axles, and larger tires. Still not sure if the rear will be a D60 or a 14 bolt, just depends on availability, and tires will be somewhere between 35 and 38, again depending on availability, and price. (That extra couple of inches sure drives the price up !)

My question is this... regarding use both on road and trail, am I better off putting the new axles back on top of the springs, and lifting as required with a standard lift kit; or keeping the SOA, and maybe using a lift kit to get an extra couple inches if I need it?

Thanks for the opinions...

Skip the rear 60. I twisted a chromo rear 60 FF shaft in one trail. Go to the 14 bolt. Stay spring over and lift from there if needed. It's easier to slide over the tubes than the u-bolts.
