SOA vs. lift

Another rookie question - SOA vs. lift (kit). Please consider: safety concerns, if daily driver, if mostly/only offroad vehicle, cost, etc. I'm asking b/c all 5 of my tires will need to be replaced pretty soon, and if I'm going to take the plunge (bigger tires, lift, SOA, etc) now's the time to do it.

Run a search in this one, it comes up a lot, and I believe pros/ cons were gone over a month or so ago.

Re: SOA vs. lift

What size tires do you want to run?? If you want to keep it in the 32-33" rage spring under will clear em. But if you want to go bigger I'd say d44's sprung over would be the way to go if you are keeping it in the 35" range and then if you are going for the big leagues sprung over d60's/9"/14bolt/ford 10.5 if you are looking to build it beefe the 1st tiem and run 38's or larger w/ some lift springs. This is very involved in requires a lot of work but even sua lifts do, keep in the budget that lockers and gears and new axles will most likely be needed.
