I did a 1" daystar last fall. It was pretty simple. Haven't done a MML. I did have to legthen my filler hose. a short piece of I believe it was exhaust tubing and two hose clamps. the vent hose still fit some how.

I'll be there thursday as well, although my weekends are pretty full for the next few weeks. Work and building bumpers and body armor on a friends geo tracker, then serious brake work on my truck...

Geo tracker? Lol.

I would just go with the body lift if I could but seems the MML is important from what I read. My jeeps over 10 yrs old so in going to start spraying down the bolts and see if I can loosen them first. If they all crack loose then I'll order up the JKS 1.25 BL and MML. I'd like to have a hand but I should be ok. I did my spacer lift like 7 yrs ago when there was no YouTube or the forums available to me then.

what your jeep look like? I'll look out for you. I'm leaving to go there from work so I'll be there early.

Yeah... about that... we did a 3" body lift on it and with the same size tires my jeep is still a hair taller...

My jeep is a 98... and I only had one bolt spin now that I think about it... I had to cut into the body and weld the nut back into place. If I was thinking at the time I might have done the MML and a tummy tuck, but I'm to lazy to tear out my 4x4 shifter after the problems we had trying to put it in...

Ehhh, thats why I'm a little afraid to tackle this in my own. If something go's wrong, I'm screwed. I don't have or no how to weld either. My jeep is pretty rusty underneath so I am expecting something to go wrong

Edit: nice jeep by the way!!

Thank you... My welding consists of getting two pieces to not fall apart... If it has to look nice I get a friend to do it...

If you think of it on thursday, ask some one while were at cabelas. I'm sure people are basically going to be crawling over each others jeeps there any ways. Sometimes you can just look at something and say yup... thats going to be a problem...
