Guys we have a ton of pics on our site (rebelrockrunners.org) about SOAs. mine's on there and we also have done Joe's as well. Look under "Andrew's Shop" for them.

Me and Andrew can crank out an SOA out in two days. It's not hard so any questions feel free to ask. My AIM name is orangecherokee (big surprise) or drop a PM.

Ummmm....how much $$ you got? I am closer, and could be persuaded...you do realize that you will need:
-new brake lines
-extended driveline
-New u-bolts
-New perches
-Some form of hi-steering (new knuckles, hi-steer arm, spacer block, new drag link

Don't tempt me Jode, i'd have to start collecting what i need over time, to much to buy at once i think, or what the gal would allow. sure wish i had a list of exatcly what to collect so i could get a start. after playin in the mud yesterday i saw the deep stuff and now i want at least 34's on my jeep or bigger? i,m gettin good at draging the diferentials in the mud lol, and since i no longer have any fluid leaks,its on the other things i wana do to my jeep. maybe a tad rack? gal likes em'!

I'll sell you my roof rack

The list:
$100-$200 for that extended driveline
$80 for extended brake lines
$20 for new U-bolts
$20 for new perches
$60-80 for a hi steer arm
$100 for a new draglink
$15-20??? New steering arm spacer
$180 for Todds rear shackle inversion
$560 for some 35" tires
$500-1,000 for a shop to regear your axles
$50-100 welding shop's fee - or find a friend
Free - fender trimming

All prices EXTREMELY approximate - I just threw out numbers off the top of my head. ANyway, that puts you right around $1,000-1,200 before you get regeared.

So there's the list - start buying parts with that tax return!

good call on the shocks - you might could make your existing rims work - especially if you get 34X9.5 LTBs or something

Steering modification parts are easily shopped for on Ebay.

$320 Complet SOA/Flip Kit from TTs

$110 Extended Brake lines from BJ's

$135 ES3000 Procomp shocks and ES2000 stabilizer from 4wheelparts

Full high-steer $341 Shipped Includes:
2 Reconditioned Chevy flat-tops, 2 1" spacers, 2 sets of 4" studs with all hardware, 2 1" cold rolled steering arms. Would cost half that if you just go with cross-over steering.

$175 Extended and balanced front drive shaft. Subtract $50 if you dont need it balanced. Or, find someone with a shaft they want to give up off a FSJ w/6 cyl. that shaft is 2 or 3 inches longer and bolts on (I have been told) Not everyone needs this either, I did, but others have been fine. Rear shaft should be fine.

Wheels $? your call. You can safely go with a tire +4" over your wheel size, so if you have 8" wheels you can get a 12" tire and be fine..

Tire's $? again your call. $100 for used or $1200 expensive new ones

I dont think that I forgot anything... If so someone will for sure tell me

Grand total with X-over steering and no drive shaft..... only $735

With Full high-steer and balanced drive shaft.... $1080

Plus tires and wheels if you need them...
