--The fuel filler tube- anyone running into problems with it being stretched too much?
I didn't.

--Difficulties with shifting the T-case, or did you just trim the plastic housing a bit?
I didn't have to trim or install the provided bracket as I did the MML & BL.

--How come with some Mfg's, the 1" requires moving A/C lines but not with the others? It seems not at all with any of the 1.25" ones.
This wasn't an issue, and I do have A/C.

--How many of you all just run no fan shroud vs. cutting and/or relocating mounting holes?
The MML eliminates this step, however I do believe the relocation brackets may be purchased on the net.

--Anyone cut any BL's down to smaller than 1"? (not sure why, just asking)
Nope, kept mine at 1.25".

dbbd1 The AA linkage bracket?

I already did this, yes, under any circumstances.

dbbd1 I have a few questions about BL's, specifically the 1.25".

Thanks in advance.

Triple88a When you get a body lift kit, it should come with a linkage drop bracket.
02-18-2008 09:38 PM
rthdtj Is the sole reason for the motor mount the radiator fan? I am considering an electric radiator fan & will do the raised motor mounts if they necessary, I just want to keep it simple if thats possible. Oh BTW, any opinions on the transfer case shift linkage, is the one that moves the linkage from the body worth the expense & trouble ?
02-18-2008 04:38 PM
orange05tj Do the mml. You'll be happy with it in the end. You won't need the drop bracket for the linkage with the 1.25 BL. I was going to do the fan shroud at first until I realized the mml was easier.I have a little 2" BB right now with the BL and mml and no tcase drop. No vibes. Until next week.....
02-18-2008 04:28 PM
MoA yah.. i am running like 3.5'' and i have 2 washers in as a tc drop.. the mml is the way to go instead of a tc drop for sure..

at first i didnt want a bl because i thought they were ugly... but thats the first mod id do to any jeep now that i did mine.. i love the jks bl

i have 4.5" of lift and with the 1" MML i only need 4 washers to lower the TC.
02-18-2008 11:51 AM
distortedtj maybe every jeep is different. you may still need only 1 or 2 washers still

Triple88a nope after BL ur suspension remains the same as it was before the bl.
02-18-2008 12:35 AM
Jonny15 oh i know it doesnt have anything to do with the suspension, iv'e just heard a few things about vibes under acceleration/going over bumps ect...
02-18-2008 12:33 AM
Triple88a Doing both at the same time will save you time all together as if you do both at the same time you will not need to mess with the fan shroud at all which means no drilling holes. You might not even need to use a drop bracket for the tcase shift linkage.

Two, with just the 1.25" lift what are my chances of getting vibes?
yes you can just move the fan shroud down

your chances are 100% ok just kidding. a bodylift moves the body away from the frame. not the axle down so your chance of gettin vibes from a body lift is ....... 0%. body lift has nothing to do with the suspension of your vehicle.

orange05tj Oh yeah, I forgot about the stops. I used wd40, worked fine, just a little messy.
02-17-2008 11:36 PM
tazmann910 I did my body lift in about 1 hour with a high lift jack.
Lifted my buddy's TJ in about 1 Hour with a high lift jack
Lifted my buddy's JK in about 1 hour with a high lift jack..

I think you get the idea. And here is a little trick for the front stops, run some fishing line thru the hole, hook up the new stops and then used the fishing line to pull the stops up tight. (hope this part makes sense, easy to do, hard to expain. Also if you spray Windex on the stops before trying to force it into the hole, it will slide in nice and easy and then it evaporates.

If you want more details, just send me a message and I can try to explain better.

Triple88a I bought a dremel tool 2-3 years ago and i'd say its worth it. I've used it many times. I'd buy it again if i need to.
02-17-2008 11:23 PM
orange05tj you remember that day with the mml.
02-17-2008 11:22 PM
nycom96 buy one
02-17-2008 11:21 PM
orange05tj yeah, but I don't own a Dremel
02-17-2008 11:19 PM
Triple88a Jeez, careful man, you should have gone to home depot or ace or some hardware store and gotten few grinding wheels for those dremmel tools. 5 bucks and they work on regular hand drills..
02-17-2008 11:10 PM
orange05tj tried a sawzall first and almost took my fingers off.
02-17-2008 11:10 PM
Triple88a so 1.25" MML would be perfect then?
02-17-2008 11:08 PM
orange05tj the studs on the stock motor mount. 1/4" off
02-17-2008 11:06 PM
Triple88a what did u need to cut orange?
02-17-2008 10:43 PM
orange05tj I installed my BL in about 1 hour with half ass tools from WalMart and a rusted out floor jack that sits outside all year. The mml wasn't to bad except the passenger side because I couldn't get my hands down far enough, the bolts were rusted, and my eyes were swelling shut, and that was the day my glasses were at Lenscrafter. Oh yeah, if you do a mml, make sure you have a grinder available. You'll need it. Unless you want to dull out 7 hacksaw blades like I did.

No you had to cut a piece of the brackets that hold the radiator to the body to clear the AC lines

yes it´s true that you´ll gonna break your fingers when you lower the fan shrould.
my BL kit came with some fan shrould lowering brackets. i didn´t have to drill new holes. but i had to cut a piece out t the fan shrould for the A/C lines.

distortedtj it's only 50 bones for the jks mml

do you have a drill and are you flexable? without the mml you will have to drill new holes into the radiator support to lower the fan shroud.
