That's what I've read as well, just wondering if there are people that have done it. After wheeling in the mountains this weekend. The jku's seemed to do better than the LJ and CJ7 due to wheelbase.

So maybe not what you are looking for but my '98 was stretched by MCE Fenders; the rear tub is from an LJ and sports a stock LJ top. The wheel base is a little less than 5" over an LJ at just over 108" . Tires are 35" KM2's. Clayton 4-link rear (3-lin front), 4" lift and 1" BL. For street driving the wheel base is a huge improvement in 'comfort', in terms of comfort in a Jeep. Off road the Jeep feels more stable for ascents and decents plus is seems to take stair-step type features more eaily than my SWB buddies. The LCA do scrape and rub but that is likely on me. Mid-arms or a good short arm could work better there. Try to find a good side shot. I hope it is helpful to you.

I like the look of that. If I do it, it'll be either mid or short arm.
