Help with body lift and new motor mounts
 
Gents, I am new to the forum and appreciate the help. I am putting in a skyjacker low profile skid plate on my jeep to tuck up the drive train. To create space i am also installing a 1" body lift and motor mounts. What order should I intsall in? Also, if you have any random pointers for this let me know, thanks.

I don't know if it makes any difference the order you do it in but for what it's worth I did the BL first.
Random pointers...
Give all 11 body mount bolts and engine mount bolts a good spray with PB Blaster or your preferred spray on product. I gave mine a good spray every day for a week prior to install.
Make sure you have a 18mm socket/spanner for the OEM engine mount 'through-bolt'. I mention this because 18mm is an unusual size and most socket/spanner sets do not have it.
Also an extender bar for your torque wrench will be your best friend especially with the motor mount bolts that need to be accessed from underneath and the 2 body mount bolts up near the rear shockies.

You may find you have driveline vibes after the tummy tuck. You may also need to consider a SYE setup on the transfer case and rear adjustable upper control arms to fully do a tummy tuck properly.

I'm starting to think that's the one thing that wasn't done on mine (I only get vibes between ~50-60MPH)

Who did you order the BL and MML from? And how much was it?

I am tracking on the SYE, have that as well as adjustable arms and a cv driveshaft, as of now no vibes in the driveline at any speed. The new 1" body mounts are Daystar and where 139.00, the motor mounts are currie and where 79.00, both from 4wheel parts. the body mounts should be fine, I have neard both good and bad about the currie motor mounts though.
