Hard plastic body lift

I have 3 inch body lift that is hard plastic is this homemade?
Has the hard plastic between the frame and the body loose to have the factory rubber frame washer and nut.
I would take it off but with the v8 swap I know i got to run 2 inch body..

Most body lifts are manufactured from urethane, which resembles plastic.

When we were teenagers, my buddy lifted his CJ with doubled up hockey pucks at each body bolt. What a deathtrap!

Sorry, thats zero help but your post jogged a fun memory.

Does this look right ? I think the lowers might need to be replaced. This is yj so I might put this in the wrong forum.

yup, this is the JK forum, but I have seen body lifts that look just like those on YJs in the past if it helps...

Man....Those have to ride rough especially on a leaf spring set up. I had some on my TJ and thought I was gonna have to see a chiropractor.

That's messed up.
Definitely jump on the YJ forum, or maybe a mod can move this for you.
You should have a stock rubber or polyurethane body mount, on top of the frame, then a shorter spacer on top of that.
Makes me wonder what else they messed up. Look carefully at your steering shaft, shift linkages, fuel tank filler neck, etc..

I've seen this kind of stupidity done on tall spacers because of body shift, but it's wrong.
The YJ guys can get you straightened out. Lot of experience in there.
A new body mount kit isn't too much, so it shouldn't cost much to resolve this correctly. Prothane makes a nice body mount kit. Zone has good prices on body spacers if you decide to keep the body lifted.

Good luck! :beer:
