It's taking me a while because i cant just get any time to work on it.. yesterday i started and an hour and a half in it started raining like I'm in a waterfall, today i started working on it.. ended up having hard time with the grill pucks which took a while to fix.. so i got like 2 hrs of time to work on it today.. tomorrow i should get it done.. even though its a 2" of BL and stock tires i still love it my little baby is growing up

That's hot. Gotta love a woman up to her armpits installing Jeep junk.

The Jeep looks great too! Great work Tiny!

I probably should have cleaned of the underside before I started...



Wouldn't have eaten as much dirt as I did laying under it. But it looks a little bigger from this angle (learned that from Scout) and the tires don't look so small at least.



But it was a good time even though I had to crowbar the motor to the left



See? Smiling. And by the way I printed some instructions off the net and they sucked. I ended up using the vague ones from JKS and kinda winging it.

The motor mount lift and the body lift should be done together, just because the t-case shifter linkages, fan shroud and a few other things that are attatched to the body and somehow/someway attatch to the engine trans need to be moved together. Dont do the body lift without the Motor Mount lift. You WILL have issues. The t-case shifter will feel weird, and possibly pop out of range, and you will hear the fan hit the shroud on hard wheeling when the motor mounts flex. Dont be afraid of the Body lift, its pretty easy if you have 1 or 2 floor jacks, a couple blocks of wood and some patience. But you will have to do them both before you try to drive it. Good luck, and remember, we do this for FUN, so dont get mad at it!!!!

if you relocate the fan shroud with brackets then it should have the same clearance as before the BL right?

and i did the BL and did have to cut a little piece for a hose that was in the way...if i didn't trim it the fan shroud wouldn't go all the way down and over the bolt...so there would only be 3 nuts holding the fan shroud on.

you relocate the radiator not the shroud.. otherwise you wouldnt need 6 brackets (so i didnt get it wrong-good) .

I gues you just unbolt the shroud and ur done if you're doing bl and mml at the same time. The brackts are the same lenght as the the height of the pucks so yes the clearance remains stock. I'm estimating around 3/4" clearance around the fan and the shroud so you can get away with installing a .5" bl and not messing with the brackets but thats about it.

Actually I am pretty sure Bigjeep is right with a 1 in BL you relocate the fan shroud, not the radiator. The only reason you will have to relocate it is so that the fan doesn't hit it.

You don't have to relocate anything if you are doing a 1" body lift AND a 1" motor mount lift at the same time.

Yeah, I did both. Like I said, I'm not a big fan of body lifts. I really don't want to spend any cash on anything that doesn't add to trail value. The jeep was tall enough for my tastes. The bottom of the door is about at my hip now, which means I can no longer drive my mom to the store in it because she can't get in, which means I have to drive her car which I'm not a fan of.

The body lift was a necessary evil so that I could lift the motor and get rid of the vibes. And I'm so glad they're gone. They bugged me more than I thought.

I was talking about Bigjeep and triple88a both doing just BL's. I know tiny did both or it wouldn't have gotten rid of any vibes.

Gotcha, I was talking about Tiny's situation, since it was her thread.

Looks great. From the looks of the space in your fender flares, I would say 32's or 33's.

Good job Tiny.
I have a question, did you remove the T-case spacers or do they stay? It looks like they are still in place in the above pic.

I realized that I hadn't dropped the T-Case enough to do anything, so I'm going to take them out even though everything is fine. I'd only put in two washers and got frustrated because the nutcerts kept letting loose. After yesterday and the crowbar, I wasn't ready to take care of that. Next weekend they come out.

tiny, the pic of your jeep on the first page looks huge!

it looks so dang high because of those 31's...you could prolly go 32's with no rubbing.

i tested mine out on a flex hill with the BL and didn't have any rubbing where i did before...i gotta disco and try it...but i didn't rub before the BL when i was disconnected.

no, you relocate the fan shroud.

thats the only way i see it working. i installed 4 (don't know why it came with 6) brackets for the fan shroud and im positive its right. it wouldn't work another way and i've had zero problems...plus i looked at the write up by 4x4xplor

Yep as JHerrin said for ~1" you relocate the shroud and for anything above you relocate the radiator there are 6 screws that hold the radiator and the fan shroud is held by 4 screws to the radiator

See...I told you you could do it..... Just for discussion sake, What body lift is that??? I always do the Daystar lift and with those, you toss all of the stock Mount parts. Looking at the pics, I was wondering if you should have done the same.....It LOOKS a bit higher than 1".....
