best 1 " body lift

Hi all,
Plan on going from 31" to 33" tires,want to keep the same fender clearance.Any pros or cons to JKs 1.25 body lift or Daystar 1" ?.Also any issues using a MML in conjunction with my transfer case drop ?.Currently using an OME 2.5 "suspension lift boosted up with poly coil spring spacers to 4.25" front/3.75" rear,on a 97 tj sahara 4.0 6cyl 5 speed.

I have a 2.5" OME HD suspension with 2.5" spacers in the front and 2.25" in the rear. After I installed the 1" MML I could remove the 1" TC drop and I donīz have any vibes.

I would instal a 1.25" BL/1" MML combo. On that way you donīt have to drop the fan shrould.

I personally think that all body lifts are going to be the same thing since all they are is just hockey pucks..Anyone you go with I would upgrade the bolts on them just to be safe..Never hurts to have a high grade bolt on there

Man thats good news,I thought I was the only one using coil spacers with the OME kit LOL.Ive added adjustable track bar,dropped pitman arm,and my own transfer case lowering kit.Setup gives me 4.25" front/3.75 "rear and sits level.Now I want to regear (3.07)to 4.10,run 33/12.5/15 tires and new black steel wheels.The body lift is just to regain my fender to tire clearance that I have now.

Do some body lifts replace the stock rubber mount,and some dont? The JKS looks like it stacks on top of the OEM mount,wondering if one is better than the other?

I still have the stock trackbars and control arms and everything works fine, I only installed some OME long travel shockjs for a beter flexing.
For my 35" tires i installed a 2" bodylift.

The JKS BL is very good. The other ones are only an option if your budy mount bushings are worn out.

Consider 4.56 gears if you are going to the trouble. I don't think you even need a body lift with the set up you described. Does anything rub? Keep you COG low!

While I can't speak for any of the other body lifts, I can say that the Performance Accessories 1" BL that I installed last spring was about as simple as they come. It only took me roughly 45 minutes, from beginning to end...maybe an hour if you include the time it took to put the tools away. The instructions were clear and really, the install was simple. I've heard great things about Daystar and the JKS BLs, but I don't have any personal experience with them. I'd say you're safe with any of these body lifts.

Good luck and make sure we get some pics!!!

And Bigstonz is correct, if you're going to regear, go with the 4.56's.....

4.56,Id have to check a chart to see what I might be taching in 5th on the highway? With my 31" tires I dont use 5th unless Im doing 75-80 mph on level or downhill.I figured the 4.10s would allow me to use 5th with 33" tires.Your right,i dont need the body lift,I have 6 inches in front between the tire and fender,and 6.5 inch in the rear.I just want the same clearance with the 33,s

Daystars 1" body lifts are a hole new mount not a stack mount and come with all hardware..
Have them on my 91Yj, 97TJ and now on my 06 LJ with no issues.

i love the jks bl/mml combo ($180 at redrock4x4 i think), very easy to install and less instructions with the mml like he said.. i also run about 2.5'' of lift on top of my bl and have no vibes and no tc drop spacers (EVER)
