Question bl advice

Im looking around for a 1" bl and not really sure what im looking for. I hav my eye on the JKS 1.25" TJ Body Lift and comes with free shipping from northridge4x4.com. Or should I just go for an aluminum kit? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

personally i would go with the nylon vs aluminum for just 1 reason steel and aluminum dont get along they fight each other and with a little moisture they carode the aluminum and rust steel faster than the nylon would . i see this (steel vs alum.) alot at work.

I run the JKS on another jeep a few years back..no issues, I like it as it replaced the whole bushing not just sticking one on top of the other.

I would agree with Jeeperx2 on the dissimilar metal issue. I use the 1" Daystar. They completely replace the whole mount rather than just ad height to the existing ones. I was going to get the color red but some of my Jeep buddies suggested that I get black. They are easier to keep clean and don't look out of place.

For a stock quality ride you can't go wrong with the JKS BL BMML.

I'm running the daystar 1" BL and I agree with the full replacement pucks and not just spacers.
