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.

As I posted on your Facebook discussion, I'm running my 8.8 SUA. Think most peeps go that route but I'm sure there are plenty of SOA guys too

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.
