1.25" Body lift

Hey guys I just finished installing my Zone 3" SL and I must say I love the kit! The only problems during the install I had was with the removal of some bolts due to minor corrosion.

I purchased the 1.25" and 1"MML and I must say I am a little intimidated about this install. Can anyone give me some advice on what to expect for problems during this BL and MML install, and how much time it should reasonably take to do?

Just finished the JKS 1.25 BL and the 1" MML on my 06 LJ about ten minutes ago! BL was real easy bolts came right off probably took me an hour to do. The MML was more difficult but not too bad, worst part was working in cramped spaces. The only problem I ran into was I DID have to install the Tcase linkage lowering bracket and that was a real PITA!! So hopefully you won't have to do that. Total time, less the time I spent fighting the Tcase bracet, 3.5-4hrs. I wouldn't be nervous about doing it yourself I have very little mechanical skills and was able to do it!! Plus you will feel good knowing you did it yourself

these helped me too

Did you do the MML too? Which position did you use? there should be a "a" and a "b" if it's the JKS lift

The tc bracket does nothing for the trans shifting by the way

^what he said, sorry wasn't thinking. Still did you do a MML? If you didn't I think putting one on should fix the problem with the shifting

I did the MML and im still not able to get it into the bottom gears. Should i grind the tub so the shifter doesnt hit it or is there a better way?
