1 inch bl

Can anyone recommend a cheaper 1 inch bl? I've been looking around the web but most seem to be around 150? Also can't find a write up for the install on a yj with only 1 inch

I really liked the prothane one I had on my 95 YJ but it was $150 I considered it to be priced great considering it was not a spacer it was a 1" taller mount with all the hardware

I installed the prothane 1" body lift. it was nice because it replaced all the old parts...it $145 but well worth it over the puck versions.

I did need to get a different bolt for the front center bushing. was .5" to long and could not be tightened without pushing up into the grill.

no real need for a write up to do the install. it will take a couple hours if you are by yourself.

replace all the bolts, pb blast a needed, with the longer bolts in the kit. install them enough to hold body in place but allow you to lift body off frame.

then lift body off frame about 1.5" on one side, replace bushings and repeat on other side. leave all bolt loose until al bushins are swapped.

you will need to do a motor lift at the same time or relocating the fan shroud.

I never needed to to a MML with my 95. But I was not running a tc drop either I did add a 1" Mml to mine when I did a flat belly pan

So if I do the 1 inch bl without mml. I need to relocate fan shroud lower, do they sell relocation brackets or something? Or do I need to create new holes?

Do a eletric fan conversion and you won't need a fan shroud

I just used some self tappers. No biggie.

However I'm lookin at doing a writeup on a $30 body lift that takes a little work to put together.

Are shackle lifts worth doing? I've seen some things people say regarding them as dangerous? Are they easy to install as well?

Now if I did a 1.75 inch boomerang shackle lift with 1" body lift would I need to extend or swap out anything else?
