the hoses of this part are long enough for 2" or 3" BLs.

BUT:
to put in the pucks yoi have to lift the body a bit more. if you lift it more than 3.5" to put in the pucks the hoses can be to short and get damaged.
if you take much care when you lift the body you don´t need to remove it.

one more thing.

losssen all body mount bolts, but don´t remove them. then remove them only on one side, put in the BL pucks on this side and then put in the new longer bolts. then do the same on the other side.

thats what i did.. i loosened all 11 bolts.. removed the rear 4 bolts.. 2 on bumper/2 by the gas tank, then removed the front one by the radiator and the passenger 3 and then just started 2new longer bolts one in front (radiator) and one in rear drivers bumper just in case it needs some more support.. the 3 bolts under the drivers door i left just little loose. i lifted the passenger side first (using the stock jack and a cinder [spelling?] block and a piece of wood above it not to harm the body finish) installed the 3 pucks under the door and started the bolts then i installed the back 2 pucks (bumper and gas tank) and started those.. then i lowered the jack and tighetend the 5 bolts just enough there is some force there. Then i removed the bolts on the drivers side and lifted the drivers side and slid the pucks in there and then lowered the jack a bit and installed the bolts.. i installed the front puck and the grill lift pucks at that point before i lowered it all the way (one of my grill pucks had unfinished thread on there so i had to run the screw in and out couple of times which was pain in the a..it worked but lost quite a bit of time there. I gotta set up for my bday party so i cleaned up..


preatty much all i have to do next is install the steering bracket.. 2-3 screws, install the transfer case bracket.. 8 screws (4 inside the tub), and then cut the radiator holder a bit since i have AC and install that and the shroud.. 16 screws, install the front jeep cover plastic 4 screws, the headlight covers 6 screws, install the gas tank extenders and the cover thingy 8 screws, and then inside the car i gotta install the center console 5 screws.. (didnt need to remove it since i'm not lengtening the shifter but it said in the instructions so i did anyways) and at last tighten the body bolts, adjust the 2-4wd lever if needed and check if i missed anything else. Basically now i know what i have to do.. BL is preatty simple lol

i finished my bl earlier..
only had 1 problem... i had to remove the 4 rubber pieces from the transfer case bracket (that bolts on to the tub) otherwise it would hit the transfer case linkages. I removed the rubbers and just used washers on top of the holes and it worked. I had some hard time tightening them by my self since one end of the screw is inside the tub while i'm on the other side, i did it though, I installed the entire 2" BL by my self and no one helped with anything at all (besides instructions from THIS forum!!!

As you can see the gaps are there lol i'm thinking of using that steel pattern sheet metal and making little slices of it and just bolting it on there to cover the gaps, i will rise the door steps a bit too to close up that gap as well.

i want to modify the sidestep mounts because the gap between the steps and the body is to big in my opinion.
it´s very comfortable to enter the tj now, the foot can go between the steps and the mounts. but it looks a bit ugly.

any ideas?

get a flat 1/4" ~ 8-10mm thick metal sheet and drill some holes in it and move them up.. that was my alternative if the flip of the brackets didnt work but since it did i didnt do it...

I did remove the steps on my tj for a day.. i nearly fell off face first on my way out since i forgot i removed them and my hands were full lol

Nicolas-Eric something like this...

you can see the 4 screws on the bottom of the plate bolt on to the stock 4 bolt location while the other 2 will bolt on to your step.. in front there are 4 bolts while the rear there were 3.

pretty much you drill the holes on the spot and use a screw on there with a nut on the other side to hold it in place... 1/4" thick should be plenty stiff and strong to hold you and the step

@Triple88a:
hey thanks, thats a good idea...!
i will see if i have these 4 holes in the front and 3 in the rear on my frame. but i think they must be there.
do you know it there is a thread in the frame? or do i have to use some nuts?
1/4" metal should be enough?

yes they are threaded (the wrench was 10mm... no info on the thread size).. there are 4 screws in an even pattern and for the rear there are 3 in a right triangle shape..

i think 1/4" should be enough but if you want you can allways go bigger to be safe, looking at the size of the metal used on your steps 1/4th should be pretty good

After you get done tweaking everything to make a 2" BL bearable, you could have just done a 3" BB.

Every one says that stuff but no one is looking down the road... i'm looking at ~5" lift... how much will i need to spend to get a 5" suspension lift with driveline angles of a 3" lift?

one more problem. i "only" have a 2" BL. i can lift the sidesteps only about 2.5".

then the plate would look more like this:



the lower bolt of the sidestep would be where the frame is. i think i must find somone who can weld me my sidesteps to this metal plate because i don´t want to drill the frame...

with a 3" BL it would fit...should i change to a 3" BL?

i thought that would be in the way.. use something like this for the bottom bolt so the nut would be on the ouside.. so for one the nut will be on one side and for the top the nut will be on the inside...

in some days my 2.5" HD OME lift will be (i hope so) on the way from the US to germany.
actually i have a 2" BB with the 2"BL.
but i need more room for the tires. that´s why i installed a 2" BB.
here in germany we have some funny laws. it´s nearly impossible to get a susp. lifts over 3" legal over here.
they always make many driving tests and material tests so that will be very expensive. and i´m not a very rich person...
