Body lift VS A.C.
 
I've been looking at maybe a 1 inch body lift and notice most kits say "Not for AC". I just popped the hood, and seems like the lines would be long enuf. Anybody had a problem with body lifts, or had to change the AC hoses? I'm in Florida, gotta keep AC.

I had a 99 tj 6cyl and now a 2004 tj 6cyl both with a 1" body lift. I didnt have any issues with AC lines during the installations

No problems with body lift and ac.. i have 2" bl and all i had to do was cut the plastic and metal radiator holder a bit. You wont need to do anything.. maybe cut the plastic shroud that goes by the fan but again i dont think so. Here is what i needed to cut. Look at the passenger side where you see the aluminum pipes going on the side of the radiator.. When i did my bodylift i had to cut a bit off of the bracket on the side of the radiator otherwise it would be in the way of the aluminum AC pipes. Yes the hoses are long enough.

Cool, I'll get the suspension in first, then see how it sits. Decide on 1 or 2 inch, seems silly, but I gotta sit a little higher. Can't do a wjole lot with tires till I lose the 3.07 gears. Might try some 33's to see if it'll pull em.

I have an 03 with AC and a 1 in BL. I didn't have any trouble. I would suggest staying with the 1 in BL and not going any higher with the BL!!

I have an 03 as well with a 1 inch body lift and a 1 inch motor mount lift and I did not have any problems with AC lines. I would stick with 1" body lift. Here is a pic of a 3" suspension and 1" body lift with 33's...plenty of room
