Please give me the Pro's and cons of Nylon vs Aluminum 1" body lift. I'm considering (for price):
Performance Accessories 1" nylon from Quadratec for $64.95
or
Rusty's aluminum 1" kit for $59.
My initial thought is to go with aluminum for durability, but all thoughts/opinions/suggestion are appreciated.
Thanks,

I've considered the Daystar one piece kit, but am not using it for the following reasons:
I already have a set of newer poly bushings for my CJ-7
AND
i'm putting on a YJ tub, so I was going to buy a YJ 1" body lift (instead of CJ) so I can get the proper bolts to thread into the YJ tub. It sounds a bit complicated, but in order to avoid the largest amount of modification, it's easiest to go with CJ-7 poly body mounts and a 1" body lift from a YJ. YJ poly bushings wont fit in the CJ's frame body mounts, and the CJ-7 bolts won't thread into the YJ tub...whatever...my brain hurts now.

84CJ7,
If you read my post above...I know it's a bit confusing...you'll get this:
If you use the Daystar 1" integrated lift from a CJ, then the bushings will fit into the holes in the body mounts on the frame, BUT the bolts will not thread into the holes in the YJ tub.
If you use the 1" integrated lift for a YJ, then the bushings will not fit in the holes in the body mounts on your frame, BUT the bolts will thread into the YJ tub.
That is why I'm going with separate body mount bushings and 1" lift.
If you get the poly bushing kit for a CJ, they will fit into the holes in the frame body mounts with NO modification, then if you get a 1" body lift for a YJ they will come with the correct bolts to thread into the YJ tub.
So, if you buy separate body mount bushings and 1" lift, they will all fit with NO MODIFICATION...that is the point of my above post.
Hope that clears things up.
