Thanks for the write-up. I spent a pleasant afternoon drilling and spraying...my plan is to keep spraying until something breaks loose....

I'm replacing a 3" BL with a Daystar 1". With all the bushings in, the front bushing has a 1/2" gap at the top. The old 3" bushing are all the same height but Daystar front bushing is a 1/2" shorter than the others. Am I missing something?

Finished replacing my stock body mounts with a prothane 1" body lift. Didn't have any problem with any bolts except the back two. Had to use my cutoff and peel the metal back like a can opener. I loosened my fan shroud per the instructions, but I checked after I lifted it, and the fan shroud didn't have to be moved, so I bolted it back up.

The only problem I am having is my jeep will not go in 2nd gear and wants to jump out of 4th. I read before that this was because the angles had changed but I am having trouble finding the thread now. I currently have a 2.5 inch skyjacker lift and a lowered transfer case. I'm thinking that I might need to raise my transfer case back up now, but the jeep rides much better with it lowered. I would think about a SYE but I would have to redo that if I switch axles unless I am mistaken, so I would like to hold off until I install a larger rear axle.

Anybody have any thoughts about the best way to regain 2nd?

It might save grief and a few large holes in the floor.
Daryl, did this work for all locations, or did you just do the one?

I just did the one. I did end up cutting the floor on 2 of them and I have 1 nut pocket in the rear I have yet to deal with.

I bought a set of canyon wheels with 31x10.5" mud terrains, not realizing that the stock suspension will not clear the tires. Now I'm getting ready to install a Prothane 1" body lift and have sprayed the bolts with PB Blaster (via drilled holes) for the last 6 days. I'm not looking forward trying the first bolt...

Yesterday afternoon, I attempted to loosen some of them. On the p-side, the bolt broke on the one behind the front seat, the others came out ok. On the d-side, the rear bumper and the one behind driver's seat broke; the others came out. I haven't attempted the ones near the gas tank on either side yet...will try today and report back.

UPDATE: The ones by the gas tank came out with little effort. I cut a flap on each side of the floor to get the two caged nuts behind the front seats out. I also cut a flap behind the d-side rear tire to get that caged nut out.

I'm not sure if my '95 is the same, but the grill has metal piece that the body mount bolts to (is this the lip you're referring to?). This piece is heavy gauge

- it sticks out and draws the piece of metal supporting tbrake lines upward. Even without the protective piece in place, the "Jeep" labled plastic cover bows up in the center.

Frame bolt sizes.

does anyone know the bolt sizes for the two rearmost mounts. I managed to get the first 9 bolts out but snapped the back two. I ended up drilling out the spot welds on the rear box channel, cutting a section of the back of the channel and folding the metal up and out of the way to get access to the square captive nut. The nuts were loose and just litfted out. I removed the stub of bolts, welded the square nut back in place, folded the metal back down and welded it all back up. Not sure if this is the best method but it worked for me. Now I just need two replacement bolts but what size?

This thread saved my bacon! I've been dreading doing this. As a matter of fact, I think I bought the replacement prothane kit last October!

Snapped the two most rear bolts. Front mount was easy. Only had the drill spray holes for the two under the cargo area and the passenger side near the seat bracket. Whole job still took 8 hours. The two rear were the biggest pain as I needed to get the capture nuts out to drill the broken stud. I went through the side box frame under the mud flap panel. Replaced all the hardware with grade 8, 1/2" x 3.5" #13 bolts. Made my own sleeves out of some stock tubing I found at home depot. Cut them to 2" lengths.

Overall, not a bad project.

I started loading the nut pockets with grease now. Never want to do that again.
