4cl manual jeep with 1 inch body lift and 31s

ok so i want to get a 1 inch body lift and put 31s under it. I just want the cool factor. the reason im just doing 31s and 1 inch is because i only have a 4cl. so when i put a 1 inch lift on will i have to move the shift knob up and the 4wd knob? also what is a good brand for the lift... *let me know what yall think*
thanks,
viken

I have a four cylinder with 33's and four inch rough country lift I would go with that you won't regret it! The only con I would have to say is its a lot slower now and will have to regear the axles to 4.88 gears for the lost of power cause of the bigger tires

both JKS and Savvy Off-Road make nice 1.25" BL's.

viken,
I would consider a 2" budget boost instead. Cost about the same and easy to install.

Something like this...but lots of kits on the market:

I've got a 2.5L with a manual tranny...currently running a 3" suspension lift and 32x11.5's but just ordered a 1.25" body lift, 1" motor mount lift (so i can get rid of my tcase drop) and when these tires are spent ill be running a set of 33x12.5's and will regear to 4.56 most likely (still debating about 4.88's)

How much does it cost to regear?

Anywhere from $1000-2000 for a straight regear including parts and labor. If you add lockers then it's more. I paid $1200 for my regear.

Daystar makes the best 1" lift. Around 150$ , I waited for a sale on amazon and purchased it for 125$ shipped. I would go with 32" If you plan to regear.
