removing body lift, possible motor mount lift poblem.
 
im removing the bodylift from my jeep tomarow and i just thought about the 1 inch motor mount that i have installed. I currently have a 3 inch. Will i have problems with 1 inch motor mount lift i have. If it is a problem, how much bodylift do i need to make it work? i can always cutt the 3 inch down as much as possible to make it work.

I would buy a 2" bl as it comes with everything needed such as steering bolts and radiator brackets and fuel filler pipe and all that while a 1" bl does not include those since it uses the stockers.

If I remember right you need a 1" body lift for the 1" motor mount lift

Cut the 3" down to 1" and get some new bolts..should be good to go. Actually be different and do a 1 1/2 inch body lift...:rofl:

a 1 inch bl works... its what I use with my 1 inch mml

you prob have a fuel filler hose extension ... you'll need to remove that or shorten it.

daystar makes a great 1" bl kit... replaces the stock bushings completely instead of stacking.

if you cut your existing bl down to a 1" then you obviously will need to buy new bolts too. the current 3" bl bolts wouldn't have enough threads remaining if you were to cut them down

again besides the pucks you need to shorten fuel hose extension, also need to shorten the rear axle breather pipe extension, you need to remove steering bracket, you need to remove the 3" tcase drop bracket that comes with the bl, you need to remove the radiator drop brackets and from memory you have cover up so that needs to go too, i think thats about it but i might be missing something..
