Body Lift

Looking for a 1" body lift for my TJ. The Daystar product looks pretty good, but I have no idea who makes a good one. I usually don't like cutting corners on parts for my toy... And if you are all wondering "Why only a 1" body lift??", I have a 5'4" wife that still needs to be able to climb into the Jeep!!

Re: Body Lift

It could be worse mines only 5'0". That's what steps and nerf bars are for!

Re: Body Lift

Think twice about a body lift. Is it really worth it? They overstress your body mounts and look rather crappy.
You might want to wait until you can do a suspension lift

Re: Body Lift

If you want you can make one, just get a sheet of extruded aluminu and use a buddy's drill press, and a hole saw, make a nice lift just like more's but for a lot less, then head down the the hardware store and get some grade 5 or 8 bolts. As for the urathane lifts they are said to offer too much flex and really tax the body mounts. if you want in the range of 2" of lift look at some of the spacer lifts out there like, day star's, tera flexe's, rubicon express, rusty's and I'm sure there are more.

Re: Body Lift

Another way to make your own lift-pucks is to use long boat rollers. They are polyurethane but with a long stainless steel or aluminum shaft down the middle of them that is the perfect size for your bolts. Just cut down to the desired hieght as many as you need.
There is a comany that makes 1" and 2" body lifts, and a drivetrain lift as well. It will raise the engine up and (if you use the 2" body-lift) let you run a flat skidplate that they make. You can get a little more tire clearance, and a whole lot more undercarriage clearance.
