      • Unfortunately, we have yet to test fit this combination and would be unable to verify at this point in time.

      Hi. I have a 04 wrangler x. With this lift will I be able to run 16 rims with 31 or 33s tires. Thanks

      • Yes, with this kit you will be able to run 16" wheels with 31" tires but in order to run 33" tires, you would need at least a 2.5" lift.

      Hello, I have a bone stock 1999 TJ SE 2.5L Wrangler. Will this kit allow me to run 31x10.5R15 tires on 15X8 rims without rubbing etc..... Thanks! 1 answer
      I see this is listed as not working with the 05 and 06 Wranglers with manual transmissions. Is this because the kit doesn't include a manual transmission shifter relocation bracket? Will it work with my 06 manual tranny TJ if I use the rugged ridge 3 piece bracket kit? 1 answer
      I have an '06 Jeep Wrangler. I notice this product says w/o shocks, does that mean I have to buy them separate or will my shocks be fine since it's only 1.25 lift? 1 answer
      What all modification must be done to run this 1.25in body lift kit on a 97 TJ with a 5 speed manual transmission? More specifically what must I do to the shifter? 1 answer
      I currently have a 2.5 suspension lift on my TJ. I wanted a little more lift and was thinking of this instead of buying a whole new lift. Will this work with the current Rough Country 2.5 lift I have? If so would that make it a 3.5 lift? 1 answer

        Great body lift

        Removed a 3 inch body lift and went with this smaller one. The exchange was very easy. Loosen bolts raise up one side and install lift then tighten. Do the other side and you are done. Took about 2 hours b/c I had never done bf and wanted to make sure I didn’t make any mistakes. Otherwise this job only takes about an hour. Y the change you ask? The three inch body lift makes the Jeep a little unstable. Even with beefed up shocks and springs. The smaller body lift gives it just enough lift for my 33s and makes it ride more stable on the highway. Would definitely recommend this lift.

        It was a very solid purchase. It obviously isnt the best body lift available but for the money it gets the job done.

        Body and MML

        I did this with a 1" motor mount lift and it came out great. Only difficult part was getting out the driver side motor mount bolt when doing the mml because of interference with the AC. I ended up using a saws-all and just replacing the bolt from the other direction.

        Great product

        This body lift works great I added it to my 2.5rc lift just so I can get a little bit more flex going down the trails with my 33x12.5r15 Deegan 38s. FAST install and it's pretty simple and easy

        1.25" TJ Body Lift

        Awesome kit that was VERY easy to install. There are a couple of steps I would add to the instructions to make it easier, but it is really straight forward. Just enough body lift to add a little clearance without making the Jeep look bad like larger body lifts do (in my opinion). Would also be REALLY nice if the kit contained some type of shifter extension. It is VERY noticeable that my shifter is now 1.25" lower in the cab!

        Simple and Easy

        I needed an extra inch of clearance to clear some 33x12.5r15 tires. After doing some research i decided to get this product. Overall it took me around 2 hours to install the entire thing, and that was in a parking lot. The instructions are very simple and minimal tools were required.The kit has been on a while now and no problems at all. I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a lil extra room to clear tires or give more flex room. Simple enough someone with little mechanical experience could install.

        Great body lift.

        Very fast and easy installation. From start to finish only took 45 minutes. I did not trim the fan shroud because I put the motor mount lift on. Great lift for that extra little bit of clearance.

        Everything I ordered was great.

        Easy to install and looks great. Makes my 2002 TJ look tough . The only thing that was a minor set back is that one of my items was a windshield sticker , it was wrinkled and would not look right if I were to install it. But was a good experience . They should throw in some free advertising stuff.
