those spacers can definitely shift your axles...so you may need the adjustable track bar if it bothers you. you will most likely need a tcase drop also if you don't have one now.

So today i received my 2" bodylift for my 00 TJ sport 5speed.. the instructions syk... 2 pages with bunch of steps that are just scratching the surface as explanation goes and there are couple of black and white pics that show a screw or two.. the instructions dont even tell which pucks go where it just says install the pucks... yeah duh lol

The BL is from ebay and its a black mountain kit.. ~$80 bucks so ~95 shipped to my house.
The kit it self seems preatty solid except the intructions.

I'm now looking for better installing instructions and writeups so i'll post them as i find them..

so far i've found this one http://performanceaccessories.com/in...ns/972_973.pdf

I'll go on record as recommending no body lift taller than 1". Just too much crap to have to do for a 2". A 3" would be unthinkable.

I'll third that (<-does that make sense? )

I've decided against putting the body lift on, it's been sitting in my room for the past couple of months. like you all said, just way to much stuff to put on for 3/4"(in my case) lift

jeez people it only takes about an hour longer than it would be to install ~1 lift.. i can spare an hour.. i dont have any lift now so for me that would be a big difference.

didi you ever install a 2" or 3" BL? or do you only repeat thinks you heard in forums?
installing my 2" performance accessories BL only took about 2.5 hours. and for a 3" BL nothing more had to be done. only the pucks and relocation brackets and fuel filler hoses are a bit longer there.

I'm beyond just repeating crap. A 2" BL isn't a big job but there's still more to it than a 1". I'd still rather limit any BL to 1". A 3" BL is just stupid to add to a Wrangler. When I need more height, I'll add it to the suspension where it will do some good.

Me either and it's not because of what I've read on a forum or that I've installed one myself. I personally don't care for the way they look.

many people cut their flares or install some tube fenders for enough space for big tires. so why is a 2" or 3" that bad?
it´s cheaper than other fenders and doesn´t look as bad as most people say.

If your not trying to get flex but to just put bigger tires under it, why not just go to a 2" BB, your retain all the stock characteristics with out all the hassles of a BL. Then get some quick disco for some more flex and you've got a great basic Jeep.
I had one under mine until I upgraded and was able to put 33'12.50's under it.

Before


After 3" Lift

bigdogself i'm planing on lifting it as the suspension goes also.. i'm planing on ending up with around 5" of lift.. if i do all 5 for suspension i will need much more things than i would need with a 3" suspension lift and 2" bodylift.. I know 5" suspension would handle better but i currently dont have the money for a long arm kit and sye, cv, longer brake lines and everything else required. That is the reason why i'm adding a 2" BL now instead of BB which will later end up being replaced with a 3" suspension lift anyways and end up costing me more money.

I get what you're saying and i would agree with you but that BL is not the only thing on the plan list.

Ok so i started my 2" ebay BL installation.. so far so good.. unfortunetly an hour and a half in (now) it got interupted by a thundercloud.. thanks a lot Jesus!!!

I got only 1 bloody knuckle so far from the exhaust manifold when trying to unbolt the steering bracket..

I unbolted the radiator and the shroud, i got the shifter bracket all off, unbolted the gas filler screws (mine did not have a canisher in there ) , removed the center console inside. and losened the body mount bolts (the 2 center ones under the doors were pain in the ashhole.. i had to use a torque wrench since thats the longest handle i have.. 600 inch pounds were easily maxed out). That is as far as i got and it got dark and started raining in less than 5 minutes even if it stops everything will still be completely drenched so i will continue my installation tomorrow.
