You may be able to contact daystar directly and see if they would be willing to sell you a.single. Also, you can try asking in the yj section. Someone may have stock mounts.floating around their parts pile they would be willing to let go of.

Cheers

I pulled my 3" BL last year. Missed the two under the middle of the body at first. DOH! I put mine on a band saw and cut them in half to make a 1.5" lift. As for the radiator. The "radiator relocation kit" that was on mine was basically two pieces of flat steel with holes drilled into them and pinch bolts (that's what I call the bolts with the teeth below the head). I put a nut on the end of the bolt, tapped each bolt out and drilled new holes exactly between the existing holes. Since I was going from 3" to 1.5", the math was easy. Drilled the new holes, pushed the bolts into the new holes and remounted the relocation "brackets". Relocated the radiator exactly 1.5", which is where it needs to be in relation to the fan. Stock height would have been off center of the fan.

The only problem, other than my stupidity of missing two locations, was the steering shaft. Mine was frozen and I didn't realize it until it shoved itself into the steering gear box and blew all the seals causing me to get a new box.

I actually did that today drilled them at 1.5" too. It drives really good, goes in all gears and 4 wheel drive. What happened to your steering shaft was that something that happened from lowering it?

Took the Jeep out today to make sure everything worked good and nothing was wrong, took it on a little trail behind my parents neighborhood. Here is a Pic

Also was the first time i took it off road handled really well, reminded me of what I've been missing since I sold my last YJ.
