JKS body/motor mount lift

I got me some new meats over the weekend and need to order a body lift for the jeep hopefully it will give me the clearance I need for these 33" mudders. I currently have 2" fatbob spacers in the rear and zj springs in the frontt. I will be ordering the jks 1.25 body lift and motor mount lift here in the next few days and I am curious as to what was easiest to do first will doing the body lift first make it easier to get the lifted motor mounts in or does it not matter. thanks

thats pretty good info I've did a lot of body lifts just not on jeeps and I noticed one of the motor mounts might be a " PITA " to deal with, thats pretty much all I was worried about.

i did my bodylift first, then the mml second.. you cant start your jeep until you get the mml installed because you will tear your fan up..

check out redrock4x4.com i think thats where i got the best deal on my kit.. 180 shipped for the 2

what kind of tires did you get? remind you if your running stock rims, a 12.5'' wide tire will rub when turning.. cheap solution is wheel spacers or steelies..

I have A/C and I had a heck of a time getting the drivers side motor mount off of the engine ( rust ). If I had to do it all over again I'd get the regular MML and not the Budget MML due to having to cut the original equipment bolt.

The driver's side is a little bit more difficult, but not too bad. I removed the actual mount from the engine. It's held on by three bolts. Check them for torque after a few days, they'll loosen up.
