    Default 1" body lift

    well I got the body lift on.. it was about 3 hours for the install.
    I pulled my fan shroud, but I'll put it back in later. I also did not put in the steering shaft. I figured it will be easier to do without the front axle under there tomorrow or sat.

    Now being that my body mounts are like 23 years old I got about an inch and a half out of this LOL. ALSO I GOT ALL THE BOLTS OUT none were too bad (even the DS rear where I have the cross member bent to crap.

    this was super easy to do and I recomend this for anyone with an older Jeep that needs body mounts
    Here is an overall shot




    Here is one from the front


    Here is the bad one DS rear


    and after


    I've got a lip that covers MOST of the back


    and a side shot

    That is a sweet looking rig!

    Good job on the install. I'll be following in your footsteps soon.

    One question: are those BF Goodrich MT's? If not what are they and what size are the tires?

    Thanks,
    Joel

    They do offer them in Red or Black. Georgia's YJ has the 1" BL by Daystar in Black.

    I guess I should've paid more attention to your signature for the info on the tires. But, hey...they look good. I'm thinking of going with 33's or 35's. BFG's look nice.

    What gears are you looking at going to?

    Looks great. I've been back and forth on doing the hockey puck lift as part of a tummy tuck on the ol' girl.

    I'll be doing the JKS 1.25" lift here in a while.

    84jeepjohn - do you ever find yourself short on overhead clearance when driving through parking garages or what not?

    Well before the BL when we were in San Antonio... I do not remember haveing issues. I can still get in the garage so that's a good thing. I should have like 3" left before I get into troubble LOL Granted it REALLY made a difference when I "tried" to get into it I about busted my @$$ NOW my wife has a thing about hights... she's been fine UP TILL YESTERDAY when I put the BL on... She about FREAKED when she tried to get out of it.
