Cutting body lift blocks???

My TJ has a 2.5" body lift on it and I want to remove it, but with the Tummy Tuck and MML I have to have a 1" i think. I want to cut the body lift blocks, but would that be a wise decision? What are the blocks made out of?? Any hints & tips?

I used to put lift kits on fullsize trucks mostly, but all the body lifts I have delt with are plastic. Should be pretty easy to cut with a table saw and a lil skill. If you mess up on it dont stress it, Just get a block of wood and flop that in there and you'll be fine for a while. Hope this helps

Body lifts are usually either a hard ABS like plastic, or a harder poly bushing like plastic/rubber compound. The best thing to do would be to purchase a new body lift, as you will also need new body bolts as well.
