YJ's with 2.5" springs SOA on 35's

As the title says, looking for pics of rigs with a 2.5
' spring SOA on 35's, preferably w/o a body lift, but if you've got a 1" BL post up too. An axle swap is quite possible in the very near future for my rig, so I'm thinking I might go SOA at the same time. And for the price on Qtec, the 2.5" Standard RE springs are hard to beat! Thanks in advance!

Read ALL of what he said! SOA + 2.5" springs = 5.5 to 7 inches of lift (depending on axles used) so yes 35s would fit, he could actually clear 37s.

with a highline kit and some other things you can but besides he said SOA so he would be around 8 inches of lift which i think is more than enough most guys use stock to 1.5" springs for 35s

RE standards are very reasonably priced, which is why I'm thinking about getting them. The SOA Re's are a bit more expensive, but I noticed the OME springs are even cheaper than standard RE's! Even cheaper than stock replacements, which is why I'm considering them. But I think it'd be a little high for 35's, and that's as tall of a tire as I'm going with the 4 cyl...

Then why not just buy some replacement springs. You wont gain any lift except for the (5-6") of the SOA plus your BL and TJ flares, you will have plenty of room for 35s.

More than likely... But my health insurance sort of became my financial responsibility recently, so I've gotta make sure that's covered before I decide what to do with the 9"

Martin- that looks pretty good! Not as tall as I'd thought a rig would be with those springs.

I lifted mine with the 2.5 standard duty lift kit from RE. I'm getting a set of waggy axels this weekend and going SOA in the near future which means Im planning on 35s. My questions were what did you do with your brake lines (i have the braided ones for up to 4" of lift but did you need longer ones or move them under the frame etc), what kind of shocks did you go with, where did you find a good driveshaft for something that tall, and did you do anything to lengthen the wheelbase? sorry for all the questions (I'm kind of a newb at this stuff).
