Re: Body lift, which vendor?

North Coast Offroad, Rocky Road Outfitters, & Calmini all sell 3 inch body lifts.

Most folks recommend not going over 2 inches with a body lift on Zuks. That extra inch causes more problems than it's worth.(shifter, gas filler hose, etc) If you NEED 3 inches you could make up the one inch difference with longer shackles if you don't already have them. But it's your rig.

We've got 'em for $99. Comes with instructions and takes about 2-4 hours to install. We've done quite a few so I can give you some install tips if you get hung up.

Re: Body lift, which vendor?

Besides the filler hose needing stretched, shifter clearance, and the steering needing slid down a bit, are their any other negatives? Im puting a toyo engine and tranny in, and need a bit of room in the tranny hump, and a little bit more clearance to clear my 33's.

Re: Body lift, which vendor?

I've got a 3" Body lift in my Zuk! The only thing I had to do to mine was the filler hose for the gas (might come with kit), heater hose needs to be longer (might come with kit), the steering rod needs to slide down a bit, when you try to shift into 4wheel low it will hit the body, just notch a little square where it hits and it will fall in, or you can bend the shifter rod. That is about it, make sure you take all the little clamps off that hold the wires in the back of the Zuk. I forgot them and had to replace them all! What a pain in the ASS! Later

Re: Body lift, which vendor?

this may sound stupid but it worked for my dad putting a turbo 350 tranny in his. he did a 1" body lift but he widened the tunnel by using the scissor jack out of the family wagon. jst started in the front and workd his way t the back. it came out lookin godd and about 1 1/2 to 2 " wider tunnel with no cuttin. also, i don't mean to bash anyone but i tried last year for 45 days to get a 2" lift from rro and never got it and ended up making my own. maybe they have fixed the problem since then.

Re: Body lift, which vendor?

I made my own, but the cheapest I could make it for was $50, and it took me 14 hours to install it. So far so good though.

I bought the 3" from Calmini and the only thing I had to do was drill the shaft pins.

All the kits come with all the pieces you need to make a 3" body lift work.

We also have 1" and 2" (as well as the 3") body lifts in stock. Feel free to call and ask for me if you have questions about the body lifts. I've worked with several of them in the past.
