How tall is your body lift? I would think a body shop, or fab shop should be able to weld in reinforcement and repair the rip.

Get rid of the 3" and go with a 1.25" bl, or it will likely happen again. This is one of many reasons I always advise against a bl over 1.25". The added leverage and stress under flex added by a taller bl will rip mounts, snap bolts and twist metal.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a 1" to 1.25" body lift . The advantages are many and the disadvantage is a 1" gap that is hardly noticeable.

Isnt a prob of any body lift that with a harder jump or not intended hit somewhere that the body could shift because of the body lift?

Not with a cupped block, or a daystar full replacement bushing. They stay where they are put. I have seen plenty of taller bl's do it, but have yet to see this happen with a 1".

Coool good info. I was plannig on one to accompany my 4 inch lift but was a bit hesitant when i heard on a harder bump or jump the body can shift. And stuff like that happen while offroading.

If you're jumping your Jeep the body mounts are going to be the LAST things you should worry about.

Iam not jumping my jeep but since we do alot of sand sometimes we build up a bit of speed and with rough ground it can get some air and it gets rough. And when people told me that with small parking bumps the body can shift with a body lift soo for sure with the roughness of the terrain the body can shift too.

You don't need to worry about body shift. Many, many, many people run body lifts with out problems and put there Jeep through a lot more abuse. 1" BL and you'll be fine, get one that keeps the factory bushings because rubber allows for more body FLEX and doesn't transmit vibes as much.

You can buy new factory rubbers if they still have any in stock at the dealership and add the blocks to those, or buy the daystar one piece like the ones I have. I run in the sand also! The daystar does transfer more viberation doe to being a polly mount rather then a rubber mount, but I stuffed a 5.9 in my jeep so I was going to have vibes anyway. And most of the twisting I have to do is because the moron in his way cool chevy with those 40" boggers and a open diff just dug two huge trenches on the trail I'm running.

Tell me about it. The wprst part os when he tries to go up 5 times and digs up the whole place, making it undrivable. I would to have no vibrations actually, soo i will look for srock or a non polyurethene boot.
