body lift how to, help!

Hey All,
Need some help lifting my 97' Tracker. It's a daily driver, used to haul my kid around, so I've determined a 3" Calmini kit too tall for the moderate off-road use it will see. I like RRO's 2" kit, but like everyone else it took me 2 months to get parts out of them. What will prevent me from buying some fiberglass 1-2" lift blocks and throwing them on. Are the body studs staked or threaded in? Any other issues to contend with? TIA

Re: body lift how to, help!

the stock bolts are welded in. so if you are going to do a budget home-made body-lift you will end up drilling them out and replacing them...

its a lot of work, it took me a day to drill them out, but it can be done, its cheap and you can do it whenever you want...

I bought the calmini 3" body lift for mine (I also have the suspension kit now ) but I think even know for the price I liked the kit for the most part.If you have any other questions just e-mail me [email protected] oh and by the way it took them only like 7-9 days or so to get the body lift kit from them (but everything else took a long time) go to my stuff then to my track pics it shows the tracker with the body lift then suspension......

Re: body lift how to, help!

I put a RRO 2" lift on my 95 tracker. It was pretty easy took a couple of hours. The only problem with it is there are no parts to raise the bumpers. I figured out the front bumper, but I never figured out the back bumper. One brake line on the FT driver side is streched and also you can't use the stock shifter boot. To make a lift seems to be more trouble than its worth. But buying the kit also has some issues.

Just my little bit of knowledge.
