Quick question on a YJ version. Are most people doing SUA or SOA? It'll definitely make a difference in Truss width.
i would love to see a kit setup for SUA. i think most people doing the 8.8 keep it SUA but i have seen them SOA.

Good to know cuz I would have thought SOA was more popular. now I know which to make first. What about for XJ guys, SOA or SUA?

I'm trying to determine if the rear ZJ axle brackets are the same as the TJ's. I doubt they are exactly the same but if anyone can tell me the differences, it would help with a ZJ version too.

Ive never measured but this is what Ive heard.

- the lower control arm mounts are the same
- the upper control arm mounts are 2" outward
- the TB mount is different, but will bolt up if you have an adjustable bar
- the spring perches will need to be chopped to allow for shock clearance.

That should give you an idea at least.

Looks like I'll need to find a rear ZJ axle to do this right.

It'll likely be a month or two. My plate is stacked high with projects and I wasn't planning on a ZJ version until we got requests here. Once I find an axle and have some good time to get all the dimensions accurately, then I can just modify my files for the ZJ version.

Is it too late to get this set up at the intro price? I just found a 8.8 with 3.73LS.
