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.

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.

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

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.

Northwest4x4 I refuse to use body lift.

rda616 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.

BRINDLE99SAHARA Its a 3 inch and i also have a lift rancho rock crawler and just bought 35's for it ill take a pic

rda616 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.
