      Description: The 1.25 TJ Body Lift by Rough Country is the most complete and economical solution to tire clearance problems that does not affect the center of gravity, the spring rate or the steering geometry of the TJ.

      This Rough Country Body Lift provides a full 1.25" of additional tire clearance, as opposed to the standard 1" provided by most other manufacturers. The 1.25 body lift can be used to gain needed clearance for high clearance skid plates (tummy tucks). It requires no modifications to the fuel tank, air conditioning, radiator, and brakes.



      • Does NOT fit 05-06 6-speed manual transmissions.
      • Only fits 97-06 Jeep TJ.
      • Install Time: 1 - 3 hours

          Somewhat easy install

          I wish the rad supports were extended rubber pieces instead of blocks where you have to drill into the frame. I didnt install them.

          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.

          Great for the money

          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.

          The 1.25 body lift was easy to installed. Looks great and went along well with the 3.25 lift kit I also installed.

          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

          Great kit

          Very affordable kit, just enough lift to separate the tub from frame, makes it easy to keep your frame washed off after a day in the mud!!

        Would the 2006 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) Skyjacker Rock Ready Shifter Bracket - JSRB231A make this lift compatable with a 06 manual TJ?

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

        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
