Best Body Lift for TJ?

Never really paid attention to body lifts before so here's the question:

What is the best 1" body lift for an '03 TJ? Looking for one that won't squeek, is solid, has decent bolts, can accommodate the manual shifter, etc, etc. (actually tempted to run to Toy's R Us and pick up a bunch of hockey pucks...)

Not concerned about:
- fan shroud since I'm running an electric fan
- 4wd shifter since I've replaced the 231 w/ a STaK
- fuel filler upper nozzle since I'm comp cutting and have to relocate anyway

Reason for the lift is because it is recommended / required for the Gen-Right Comp tank I'm putting in.

Any suggestions?

I will only speak to what I use and why. I run the Daystar 1" BL. I bought it because they are full replacement 1" taller mounts. I didn't want to deal with pucks under my stock mounts for the reasons you mentioned above.

pucks will do fine, its the hardware you need to make sure is right, right size/thread /grade bolts DO NOT want to mess that up!

any BL will do fine if you're only worried about the pucks and harware

That may be, but I'd bet money that your pucks and stock mounts will wear out before my replacement mounts do.

X2...
But follow the instructions on 4x4explor and make sure you get some plastic spacers for the raidator drop ( I didn't) because when you tighten the shroud back, it pull the brackets away from the radiator..

But I'm the guy who drilled a hole in his radiator trying to make the holes line up, so take that for what it is
