Never heard of one but most people with that hi a lift install something called a Hi-Steer system. I'm not sure exactly what that is because I've had no need to look into it but I imagine it's components from another vehicle that you adapt to you CJ for that large a lift.

you will not find an aftermarket dropped arm that long because if you lift your vehicle that much you gonna have big tires and the force needed to turn them would bend/break the arm.

we are talking bout 4-6"s of suspension lift right? not 3 of suspension and 3 of body or something like that? since you are in the CJ forum asking this i will assume you have done a spring over because unless you have had custom springs made there is no lift kit over 4"s for cjs. you need to do some searches with yahoo or google for "jeep SOA steering", "jeep spring over axle steering", "jeep hi-steer", "jeep cross-over steering", etc. there are hundreds of do-it-yourselfers sites out there that have information regarding this on them. i think even jeeptech.com has an article on this.
