Re: 2001 body lift

I have heard this, but not seen it yet. I have a/c on my 2000 with a 2" body lift and no problems. I do have to say, regretfully, that I had my body lift installed when I first got the Jeep so there might be something I don't know. I'm sure they would have said something if they had to move lines though. The only thing that had to be done that they told me about was the shifter linkage for the transfer case needed a little drop down bracket.

Re: 2001 body lift

I'm not sure, but I think it came with the body lift. If not then you can make one very easily with a 3"x3" piece of steel and 2 new bolts. Drill 5 holes (2 top 2 bottom 1 center) The distance between holes depends on how much lift. Bolt the linkage to the bottom 2 and the top 2 bolt into the factory holes. Then slide the linkage rod into the center hole.

Re: 2001 body lift

Here's a pic of the bracket. I guess it's actually 3.5"x2.5" and 2 holes in the top and 3 in the bottom. This is on a 2" lift though. The piece you see bolted on is on your jeep now. You take it off and bolt it to the bottom holes with the new bolts then mount the plate in the old holes and slide the linkage in. And you shouldn't have any change in ride quality with just a body lift. Even if you go with a coil spacer lift you won't notice much. I had 2" body + 2" coil spacer with 35" swampers and you wouldn't believe how nice it rode for a Jeep with 35's.
