Very tall! I would imagine not many guys in here have that setup, but hey you're from Burlington! Small world. If you bet see an orange YJ around town that's me.

The SOA alone will give you 5" of lift.

Actually 5.5" on stock sagged springs. I went soa on waggy fronts, stock replacement rear with ask, and redrilled center pin and ran 38's. Long shackles look like ***. Make up for it somewhere else

Real small world, your the fourth member I know of on here from burlington. Anyway I think it will be hard to find a pic of that setup, being no one uses it.

Not my Jeep....I repeat, not my Jeep. Poor set-up IMO.

IIRC this belongs/belonged to a guy named Rob. He was not happy with several things about it and was asking for advice. It's SOA on stock saggy leafs & ~1-2" lift shackles depending on which lower bolt hole of the day was being used.








Typically, shackles with that amount of lift will contribute to this:

So I'll chime in, but my shackles are a bit shorter.

SOA, stock YJ springs, extra main leaf in the rear.
1" longer-than-stock heavy-duty shackles, 5" center-to center, so 1/2" lift.
1" body lift, TJ flares, 35s.

I think it's the perfect combo. She flexes great and doesn't rub the body too bad when flexed. I suppose you could run longer shackles, but the rear driveshaft angle is pretty tight as it is, and longer shackles up front will hurt your approach angle.

Good luck,
Pete
