Question 2" Bl + 2"mml

I need opinions of first a 2" bl, and secondly a 2" MML.
What exactly is required for 2"? filler extension, TC drop, shifter bracket relocation? I just havent looked into anything past 1" before. As for the 2" MML, Brown Dog makes one. Is a 2"MML gunna be safe? What about my new driveline angles?

i posted this in the other thread but will post the same thing here too...

I dont have the MML so i have no idea on it. Never seen or heard of a 2" MML either so...

OK 2" BL... No complaints man. As Derek said i have a "black mountain" 2" body lift that i found at ebay for 80 bucks + ~15 to ship so 95 bucks.

i have AC so i did need to cut a little piece of the radiator bracket on the passenger side. Nuthing hard but you still need to have a cutting tool of some sort, i used a dremmel cut off tool.

The TC drop.. Everything was supplied with it. The drop brackets was binding with the linkages underneath so i removed the rubber bushings from it and adjust it after wards but that was simple stuff altough you do need 2 people to do this. (blue) http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/b...14_48_full.jpg

Gas filler extensions... it all came with the lift. They gave me 2 pipes. At first they only send me 2 clamps instead of the 4 but i called them and they shipped me the missing clamps using express mail so i got them really fast. Simply you cut the hose in 2 and you put the pipe in between and extend it and then clamp it down. You can probably weld in a bracket in that pipe so people cant get a hose down the hose so people cant steal gas from your rig.

Next the problem i had was when shifting to the rear gears.. 2nd 4th and reverse it would bind with the center console so here is my write up for fixing that. http://wranglerforum.com/showthread.php?t=10900

Yes it was that simple. You get the 11 bolts loose. Then completely unbolt the front bolt under the radiator and the bolts on one side of the body. Then lift up the side with out any bolts on (i used factory jack and it worked perfectly) Slide in the pucks, lower the jack a bit just so the body is softly resting on the pucks and start the bolts. Front radiator puck goes in last. Then after i tighten the bolts a bit remove the other side bolts and do the same thing and at that point slide in the front puck as well. Nice and simple. Remove bolts, lift up body, slide in the pucks lower jack and then tighten the bolts a bit. After you lower the body on the second side then just tighten the bolts just till the stock body pucks (yes they stay) bulge out like they were before you untightened them.

Steering bracket.. simply undo 2-3 bolts slide in the new bracket and use the new longer bolts to tighten it down.

on my 00 the evap canisher is in the engine compartment. Some rigs its in the passenger rear wheel wel just the opposite of where the filler hose is on the drivers side. I believe its the black box right behind the window washer fluid bottle. http://memimage.cardomain.net/member...31_70_full.jpg

The only complaints i have from that lift kit i got from ebay was it doesnt come with any locktite and also the instructions SUKC!!!

i didnt say it would be hard, but for only .75" ill stick w/ the jks 1.25". besides i see myself getting the RE SF 4.5 lift in a few years, i'll have 35's and id rather have 5.5" than 6.5" (personal prefrence) and i think 2" starts getting noticeable (not a HUGE bl fan) but i do appreciate your opinion

cool luckily when i flipped the bracket on my stock steps they lifted the steps exactly 2.25" so all the gap that was there is now gone so its hard to tell i have a bl if you look at it from the front .

Stock
