Body Lift Question

I am going to be installing a 1 inch performance Accessories Body lift this weekend as well as a JKS motor mount lift. I was wondering if anyone knew where there was a good write up about a similar installation that i could look at. The body lift has instructions and the MML has instructions but I know there will be some steps on the BL I don't have to do using the MML. I found this---> http://www.4x4xplor.com/bl.html and it uses a LOT less steps than the instructions with the BL but doesn't use a MML. Is it as simple as what he says or do I need to go through all the steps that they show in the BL instruction booklet?? Thanks

Doing the motor mount lift you are going to be able to skip moving the fan shroud and more than likely the linkage. Just add in your MML and then you BL and see how the linkage feels. Everything else you won't need.

yeah the fan shroud is really the only thing you HAVE to do when installing only a 1"BL. And with the MML, you can skip it.

i believe although you are installing mml and bl you still have to disconnect the fan shroud unless you are doing the bl and the mml at the same second 4th by 4th lol

Thanks, that's what I was hoping. I was going to do the MML 1st then do the BL as soon as I got done. So the only things I should really have to do are, Do the MML, Then Just loosen the Body mounts on both side, remove one side, jack it up, put in the blocks, hand tighten 1st side, then jack up 2nd put in pucks and then tighten all the bolts right?? If it is like I think should be easy enough!!

Yes. The order you have is good just don't start the engine until both are completed as the fan will hit the shroud. Leave enough slack in the "hand tightend" side to allow for movement when doing the other side.

That's about the jist of it. They come with stud extenders and bolts and that's it. Pretty simple setup really.
