Leveling idea

Ight guys so I'm about to install my body lift along with my motor mount lift, however my jeep's front end sits lower than the back because of my big brush guard. So my idea is when I install the new spacers on the body mounts could I put a few thick metal washers under them on the from body mounts to level out the front end with the back? Let me know what you think and if you think thered be any problems.

That sounds like a very bad idea.

The body mounts should all be unison, if its necessary to level the front then I'd recommend slightly taller springs to offset the back or some spacers/shackles. What year Jeep do you have?

If you are only lifting the body then you don't need a motor mount lift. You could go with a small spring spacer lift on the front coils to level it out but if you do then you might as well go for a 2" budget boost all around, maybe a 2.5" for the front.

Your body lift kit should come with relocation brackets to compensate for the fan, depending on the brand of course...

How much body lift are you going to put on? The only thing I can think that a body lift would actually effect would be your shifter linkage and that can be corrected with a linkage adapter.

Fair enough, I have a 1" BDS BL, I bought a JKS MML with it and ended up not needing it. If you want it I can send it to you, no charge other then the shipping.

I don't have the installation instructions anymore but you can download them from the JKS website. They are these:
