I don't think it will be a problem. I have a CJ8 with a 4" with a SOA and there is all kinds of room. Suspension travel with 37" will probably do a little fender well damage if you don't put in some bump stops in.

I'm about 2.5" and SOA and with 37s and there's actually room for 40s. A 4" on top of spring over is going to be way high and really raise your center of gravity more than it needs to be.

I agree. I owned a Jeep that the PO put a 4" lift SOA and it was stupid tall. It cleared 40's no problem, but was not very stable and a pita to get in and out!

I have also used Rubicon Express's soa springs on a CJ before and with a 1" body lift was able to fit 36 SX's on it with only a minor bit of rear fender triming. I'd look at triming before I would look at any additonal lift.

Thanx for not telling everybody that POS is mine.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
