Even if you went SOA you still have the diff and the shock mounts down there. less axle wrap helps eliminate some wheel hop which in turn aids in longer axle life. SOA is also nearly 5.5-6 inches of lift which is just rediculous if he's trying to stay within the LCG concept/relm. A 1" BL, 2.5 inches in the rear, and 3 inches up front along with TJ flares and proper trimming within those flares will provide room for 35's. however, the benefit of using stock springs on a SOA is the price difference obviously and the fact that the stock springs will like flex better than any aftermarket lift springs just due to the fact that they are broken in/not as stiff...

I feel mine is border line about this. It has 3.25 inches of lift and on 35's. I think its a little too much for some one here but the 1.25 BL helps keep the 35s off the fenders with out a bump stop extension. So I will throw it in anyway

the 3.55's aren't too bad, its bearable but im going to put 4.10's in it soon. the welded rear on the road definitely isn't for a daily driver, its fun as hell though in gravel/dirt/wet road lol. the tires chirping in parking lots and such is pretty funny to see peoples reactions

i've read up on u bolt flips to get those out of the way and i like the look of the "pizza cutter" tires either 33x9.5 BFG A/T or 34x9.5 narrow super swampers. so i don't plan on going bigger than that but i may go with ground pounder fab's 1" boomerangs. would that keep it low?

Huh?

FYI, SOA gives ≈5" of lift even with your flat YJ springs, which is not low COG. Now, if you're gonna french the spring hangers you might be getting down there, but I don't think the OP college kid wants to go to that trouble.

Here's LCG leaf style. TJ converted to XJ 2" lift springpacks SUA with 37's: (edit updated pic 2/4/10)

HOLY****, I found my jeeps clone.....

Looks good I trimmed the front the exact same way....I'm still working on the rear....

Only diff is that I'm on 3" and only 31's right now....I'm building my 8.8 and thinking about 35's....

Nice ride though...

That is all the action it's seen. He's still building. He's got a thread on pirate though. Definately worth reading. It's full of surprises.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.
