YJ Body Lift Instructions write up.

Hey guys!

I recently bought the Rough Country 1.25" body lift for my 95 YJ. I kept searching and searching for a write up on it and found nothing. So here it is.

1. The instructions that come with the RC lift are very vague. So that said, first thing is to chauk your wheels, you don't want that thing rolling away, then take the negative battery cable loose.

2. Take the front plastic "Jeep" cover off the front bumper in front of the grill. The center body mount is under it, just under the grill. Go ahead and lossen that mount with a 5/8 socket.

3. Loosen all body mounts. 3 under the door on each side.

Then loosen the 2 on the rear corners just before the bumper.

4. Take a floor Jack with a 10" block of wood and lift the drivers side up first. And then remove the 3 mount bolts under the door. Then put the body lift puck on top of the OEM body mount bushing. Insert the new longer bolt and hand tighten (but do not over tight right now). Repeat the same steps for the rear mounts and also the passenger side.

5. Remove the radiator fan shroud bolts and replace with the given bolt relocation mount. Make sure the fan doesn't hit it.

6. Install the new provided radiator bump stop under the rubber mounts.

7. Tighten all body mounts, and check your brake lines.

That is pretty much it guys. Hope this helps! God Bless, and Jesus Saves!

Bottom is before, top is after.

@JD95YJ I looked all under there and didn't see those. From what I could figure that is only on the TJ models 97 and later.

That's weird. I crawled under there and couldn't find them. I called Harley Dragon, he's an admin on the forums here, and I called a dealership everyone said just those under the doors and rear corners. Ill have to look further into its

Hahaha. I'm about 30 minutes south of Atlanta, but try to get up to the mountains whenever I can. I usually go to Blueridge but have been wanting to check out Helen.

I live about 15 minutes from Helen. Whenever you get your rig rolling let me know and we will go up Tray Mountain.
