2" RE suspension lift and a 1" body lift?

I just put on a RE suspension puck lift and now am thinking about putting on a 1" BL. I don't have any drivetrain problems now or other problems such as vibes etc, however by adding this extra inch in lift should I expect to have any problems? Or have to do any changes? Any info would be appreciated!

Love And Jeep'n!!!

you will be fine, just dont go over a 1inch body lift. the body lift wont have anything to do with the suspension changes. just make sure you adjust your shiftersbefore you go wheelin

Potential areas your 1" body lift may impact are:
  • Fan shroud - you will have to relocate it by drilling new holes or use a bracket that may have come along with the body lift.
  • Transfer case shifter - you may need to install a realignment bracket on your shifter assembly.

Both steps may be avoided by installing a motor mount lift at the same time (although this is not necessary). A bodylift does not affect drive line angles.

Ditto on the fan shroud and the T-case shifter. While this is not common, I ended up having to replace my rear brake lines for longer ones. Mine were stretching.
