Body lift

Well, I found a Performance Accessories 1" BL on craigslist for $50 so I bought it. Actually the fella even brought it to my shop, musta needed $50 worse than me. Install took longer than I had anticipated but the kit was a good kit I think. Alm the hardware, the pucks were good quality and it came with T-case lowering bracket and radiator lowering brackets. Im quite happy with the overall look. Will be doing a MML in the near future.

See sig, I still needed the bracket to be able to have a chance at sliding it into 4lo. Maybe he'll have better luck since its 1" to 1". But novack is on my list now since the last couple times i tried to use 4lo it popped out and made bad noises

I went back and forth for a year on the BL. The FEDEX man just dropped it off yesterday ZONE 1.25 BL with radiator lowering brackets. I will be installing it this weekend. Is the MML 100% needed. one I found was $70 for 2 blocks o' metal. Any advise before I start this project would be helpful. thanks

I went with the RC MML ($50), hard to screw up a block of metal. Probably coming from the same factory. PB blaster, heat and a big ass breaker bar.

I didnt need one but its on my list. Be careful on the puck 2nd from last on the back of the frame, you have to reach yer hand between the frame and pinch weld, one slip and its sianara to rosy palm

the ones behind the gas tank? I bought a 12 in extension to go with my 6in just for those two little guys. I made sure I could get all the bolts loose before I bought the kit.

directions said something about having to remove the whole mount if the jeep has AC cause the compressor is in the way. that's why I didn't get the MML. how much of a PITA is that, or not necessary ?

Yes, but to install you need to stick yer mitt between the rail and the pinchweld. Just be extra cautious

Not as bad as it seems. 3 bolts hold the mount itself to the block. They are torqued down pretty good, but not rusted in. The oil all over probably helped that. I removed with no heat or PB. The through-bolt connecting the mount on the block to the one on the frame is harder. But back on task...

3 bolts on the block, then take off the two or three on the frame mount. Once its off you can take out that through bolt. Make sure you put it back in the other way in ase ya gotta do it again
