I don't know of anywhere to get step by step directions but I've done it and I'm happy to help. What do you use your Jeep for? Rockcrawling, hard core balls to the wall rockcrawling, mud, daily driving, occasional run to work when your tow rig breaks? All these factors will affect the way it's done. Also whats your drive train, budget, and fabrication skills. All these affect the best way to go about it. Let me know and I'll be glad to help. Happy Jeepin'

Ed, a SOA setup with stock springs tends to yield about 5" of lift, plenty for 35's. Add 2.5" to that and you have alot of lift combined with a real short wheelbase. If you truck serves much duty on the street you may want to re-consider the SOA setup in favor of say the new skyjacker mono-leaf lift. I think
they advertise it as a 6" lift or SOA alternative. Some will say the SOA is cheaper than a conventonal spring lift but from what I've seen the cost is about the same just the expense encured in differnt places. Good luck on your project which ever way you choose to go.
