I put in a 1" Daystar BL with a 3.5" rubicon Superflex. 35" tires fit with no problems. I did experience the transfer case popping out of gear after the BL. I installed the Teraflex linkage adapter and it cured the problem.

The amount of metal removed is trivial. mines still well covered by the boot. Either way works. Obviously

Same linkage up through '03
TJs from '04 to '06 are different though.

I'm sure there is more but anything over 1" will start to apply a little more stress to the mounts.
Reviving an old thread...

I'm putting in a 1" Daystar soon...Anticanman, what gas tank skid did you use? Gen Right or something else? Any hints or tips on installation?

Thanks,

Stan

I used the gen right crawler skid. It wasn't cheap but it takes a beating like Rihanna.

I had it installed well before the body lift though. Its tight but it fits.

Ditto! I love my body lift.

I went with the PUREJEEP gas tank skid plate. There a dimple in the bottom like the factory plate for the fuel pump well.

Sorry. I missed the question about hits and tips. Was that about the body lift or the gas tank skid? The body lift went easy for me so I can't talk about any snags but the gas tank skid took some finesse to remove.

PureJeep doesn't have any love for YJs...

Anyone know of other sources for YJ gas tank lifts other than Gen Right?
