    Default body lift

    I have 97 TJ if I put a 1 inch body lift on will I have to cut the bottom of the fan shroud out and is there any other things that I need to think about.

    Nah, you just un-bolt the fan shroud from the front. Whenever you get the body lift in, you re-drill to raise it up an inch. I think there's 2 screws on each side holding it on.
    You may have to adjust the shifter linkage for the transfercase. The body lift I installed came with a special bracket that adjusted the linkage. If you do a motor mount lift at the same time, you probably don't have to worry about either of these.

    most boy lifts come with radiator relocation brackets to address this.

    Do yourself a favor and do a MML at the same time.
