A body lift may sound easy, but once you spin a nut or bust a bolt thats another hour or so to each bolt broke in getting it off or breaking into the body chanle in order to get the block that is in the chanle out so you can some how fish a bolt into it. (i just finnsihed one on a buds CJ). i prefer to do a suspention lift than a body lift any day. whith a 1.5 lift all you need is new springs, shocks and u-bolts. I've also done a shackle lift and its alright except its harde on the pinion angles but it works. the most difficult thing about that is some shackles are narower than the 2 peice stock ones so you need to trim the bushings and realy hammer it on. the rear bolt is also tough to get out near the gas tank. you may need to drop the tank to get at these. basicaly, a spring lift may cost a little more, but its a lot easer to put in.
Its not what you buy...its what you BUILD!!!
