soa postal jeep

Got a question for you guys- I have a postal jeep that I'm working on. One of my projects is to lift the beast along with putting a live axle in front. Any comments or ideas on the route I should take? The rear is soa from the factory. Should I convert the front with a soa also? How would I raise the rear, just get some stock yj springs? The springs on right now are shot, so they'll need to be replaced. I've seen them replaced with stock springs and lift obtained from blocks, but it doesn't seem like that would help with anything other than clearance for larger tires. Thanks for the ideas.

A friend of mine put a DJ5 body on a CJ5 frame and running gear. Might make your life a bit simpler. Or at least get the running gear from one.

Re: soa postal jeep

the dj5a frame is a early cj5a frame, everything you need will bolt up to the frame. mainly the only different is the straight axle up front. Even the outer hubs are the same as the cj2a and early model cj5a.
