Daystar body mount lift

I need to to replace my body mounts and was thinking about the daystar kit that replaces the mounts and lifts 1 inch. Anybody running these?

I run it and love it.. Do some searching before buying though. I saved about $20 by getting the kit through Amazon, rather than Qtec or 4WP etc. Also free shipping Part # is KJ04505BK

1" daystar is about the most popular body lift out there. I have quite a few daystar products on my YJ and I would have to say that they are THE best company for polyurethane products on the market today.

And, like it was said above, try looking up some of the parts that you want or need on Amazon.com. As long as you know what you want, because most of their descriptions are very vague on what it is, or what it fits. But the price and cost of shipping cant be beat.

Any tips or tricks on the install or is it pretty straight forward?

Very straight forward as long as your bolts aren't rusted/seized in the body.

Mine are very likely rusted as my jeep has been sitting a few years because of rust problems. I want to get her back on the road this spring so I'm trying to plan my rebuild.

You can drill a very tiny hole (about 1/8") through the top of the tub over each body mount and drip some creeping oil or spray some PB blaster down on the bolts. And do that daily for a few days before you even attempt it. Then when you're done you can seal up those little bitty holes a lot easier than dealing with broken off body bolts I think there's a thread floating around here that describes this process and shows pictures as well.
