Body Mount Replacement - YJ

In the process of installing the new rockers and the tub mounting hadware is showing its age.

Option #1
Install the 1" body lift kit that I bought two years ago and never installed.

Option #2
Energy Suspension body mount kit $59.99

Option #3
Any other suggestion?

Hmmm, sounds like the decision is easy. You already have a body lift so option 1 wouldn't cost you any money and would give you the added benefit of the 1".

As much I hate to say it, I am with him^^^^ on this one. One inch body lifts are much more subtle than taller lifts, most of the time you have to look twice to tell. Just remember, lots of PB Blaster, and lots of Pics!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

The body lift is a Performance Accessories kit. The mounts are pretty solid donuts. Kit talks about cutting the transfer case shifter and welding in their extension plus all the radiator relocations brackets.

Is the better route for ride to go with urethane bushings or the lifts solid donuts?

We're already sitting on a 2-1/2" RE lift and running 31's. Light to moderate trail work (not just a mall rat).

If the bushings are bad, then the BL won't fix the problem. If you are putting on a body lift then you might as well put in bushings anyway.

OK, that's the piece I was missing. If my end goal was replacement of the bushings, I still need to do that whether I install the BL or not.

Is it typical to cut the transfer case lever to install a BL on a YJ? Then what about the trans shifter?

What other challenges do I get to look forward to with the BL?

So is your PA BL full replacement mounts or just the pucks that go under your stock mounts?

As I remember, the box had the six large pucks for the tub and a few others (rear bumber & ??), longer bolts, radiator relo brackets, and the transfer case shifter entension (cut the handle and weld in).

Pretty sure that PA makes them both ways. Pucks and full replacements. You are right that if it's only the pucks having rotten stock mounts on top of them aren't going to do you any good.

That it is....So the Energy Suspension kit arrives Friday. We'll pick the install up from there. I have the tub jacked up but the sleeve running through the stock bushings appears attached to the flat washer/cup on toip of the bushing. Either I've got to go a bunch higher or the sawsall is gonna come out. I'll be curious to see how the new bushing parts are.

The Energy Suspsension body mount kit arrived today. From the diameter of the center hole it looks like I need to re-use the stock top metal piece and the center sleeve.

Dumb question, but does this sound right?
