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.
