Tracker body lift Q\'s

92 Tracker.
I'm doing a body lift right now. There's 8 regular mounts with bolts through them. Plus there's another biscuit under the seats between the frame and body. I don't see a way to remove those - no bolt through the floor, and none through the frame - is it just held in by a pin? How?

Anything else I'm going to hit a snag on?

I've already got the 33 12.50 to clear without any lift by cutting and repositioning the inner fenders/floor - and modifying the clutch pedal.
But as insurance I was thinking a 2" body lift would help.

Next - near full skid plates, dual ARB's and maybe a dual t-case.

Just want to make it driveable - anywhere I want.

Thanks, Rich

Re: Tracker body lift Q\'s

Wish I could help. Body lift is on my list of stuff to do. I really want to stuff a set of boggers under my kick. In the middle of making cv shaft spacers. Like I said I wish I could help.

Re: Tracker body lift Q\'s

those 'biscuits' are just pad only attached to the body, not attached to the frame, if you got the 8 bolts you got all the real mounts.

Re: Tracker body lift Q\'s

Thanks, I found that out by removing the 8 then lifting it up.

Is there an easy way of extending the 8 studs? Can't find metric couplers, so I'm going to have to make some by welding metric nuts together. Using 1.75" tube 2" long with big washers welded on the ends as the spacers.

In Calmini's body lift kit, rather than extending the studs, they use square tubing - bolt the tubing onto the stud, then add another bolt on the other side of the square tubing.

Re: Tracker body lift Q\'s

Duh, I should have thought of that, --- It's too easy!

Thanks, Rich

Re: Tracker body lift Q\'s

Find a way to fill the gap between the non bolted pads and the frame. Its their to minimize body deflection. you wouldn't want to be developing stress cracks.
