Right, because those of us who don't hit the rock gardens every weekend and opt for an SUA lift whose performance suits our needs must never get off the pavement.
You looked past the part where he said it was dangerous with stock NT axles
.....which isn't a stretch of the imagination.D
Thanks, Jeepwhore. It wasn't important enough for me to argue about it, but I appreciate your support.
More specifically, a SOA raises the center of gravity considerably...especially on a NT Jeep. We already know these Jeeps are prone to tipping over, even in their stock configuration. Raising the COG only enhances that. It's simple physics. But, hey, it looks cool...
Obviously, a SOA makes a better rock-crawler, assuming it's done correctly. But those same attributes will do you little, or no, good in an evasive maneuver on the road.
Apparently, he also looked past my second reason for choosing SUA. My setup basically involved removing the old springs and shocks, and bolting on the new ones. After an alignment, I was rolling again with a profoundly improved ride.
I didn't have to touch any steering, nor driveline components. The t-case didn't need to be dropped, and the brake lines didn't require modification. I'm sure there are other issues involved in a SOA that I successfully avoided, as well.
There is no right or wrong answer. It just depends on your needs and goals for your rig.
