pretty sure there isn't anything else to change for the body lift. i think you're safe up to 2 inches for a suspension lift before you have to start changing things.

Line shoould be fine with just a 1" body. I think you will have to move the radiator shroud but nothing major..and I can't recall but I think you may need or the kit may come with a t-case bracket of some kind. Been a long time since I did one.

You will have to relocate the fan shroud, and adjust drive linkages, but the parts to do so sometimes come with the body lift. Personally, it is easier and often more beneficial to do a motor mount lift simultaneously. This will compensate for the body lift so you don't have to relocate the fan shroud or adjust linkages. It will also lower the output on the t-case to compensate for up to 3 in lift down the road to prevent vibrations from drive shaft angle.

There's a pretty good chance you won't have to mess with the linkage with just a 1" BL. It's been awhile since I've done one also. The biggest b*tch I ever have with them is those two rear crossmember bolts. I think it's just because I have fat hands.

Just the fan shroud. I'm running a 1" body lift and that was ALL that was necessary. Took an hour to install, piece of cake.

Thanks for all the replys

I dont think I would have to do anything with my consol cause its and auto

For adjusting the fan shrou whats involved in that?
Is it something I have to put on or is it somehow adjustable and as soon as you look at it you'll know how to do that haha

I would go out and just look but my jeeps in back home in NY....I miss it

As for the fuel filler hose, with my JKS 1.25" it got a bit tight, but I was able to deal with that. Anything bigger will be a potential problem.

To avoid the fan shroud relocation, you could always do a motor lift at the same time. That will also help to reduce your chances of driveline vibrations when you do your suspension lift later.
