Your info is accurate. I have a Zone 1.25" BL and it came with the transfer case linkage drop bracket - VERY easy install. If you won't be doing the MML than the Zone BL kit also comes with the radiator brackets so you are set. The install is easy with basic hand tools.

X2 unless you go with 1 inch BL along with a proper suspension lift. I went with a 4 inch suspension an 1 inch BL. The only reason I did a BL is to help in cleaning the frame area after off road

Jerry Bransford Just make sure to avoid the temptation to go with a body lift taller than 1-1.25". And I would not pay big $$$ for a body lift from companies that replace the OE rubber body mount with a polyurethane replacement. First, the OE rubber mounts don't wear out like the poly mount manufacturers want us to believe. Next, polyurethane mounts transmit vibrations into the passenger compartment far more readily.

Wattapunk Most 1.25" kits such as JKS comes with the bracket.(lift carpet, drivers side next to shifter to access bolts) Installed here:

GoldenSahara00 Install isn't hard, linkage might get screwy. Those are your issues.

school me on body lifts

I have a 97 tj (2.5L 5 speed stick) with a 2"bb lift and 31's. I want more but am not ready to go to a proper suspension lift. Its my DD and i dont do anything crazy when im offroad (i do go off road but its mainly mud and rutts around here until snow) I am thinkin of adding a 1.25" BL but i dont want to spend too much or do anything too difficult. I also dont want to mess around with linkages or DW or anything. What are the cons of a small BL and what involved.

please forgive my ignorance lol
