I just finished a 2 inch body lift and it looks great! The only problem is that the radiator shroud doesn't have enough clearance over the fan. when the jeep is off it can spin freely but as soon as I turn the engine on it starts hittin. any suggestions on how to fix this or get some more clearance?
Yeah it happens alot when I am at work open a thread up it sits for an hour. Then you post to it just to see that now 10 others have posted what you were gonna say. But atleast I can surf the forum from work.

You missed option 4. And this one is a favorite on the forum. Get rid of the 2.5 for a SBC350.
I can say I had an 86 with the 350. Awesome on the highway it passed everything but a gas station. Off road I didnt see much of a difference since we are all going 2 MPH enjoying the ride anyway.
oh, I hear ya on that... I've been collecting parts as I could afford it and "freshening up" a 5.7 TBI.... finally ready for the swap to begin, waiting for my scheduled time off from work.... 3 weeks til the fun begins

Back on topic, I had the same problem when I redid my body lift from 3" to 1.5". Also ran into the problem when I pulled the tc drop. The fan shroud and radiator need to stay centered on the fan for multiple reasons. Move it and have a happy life.

is your t-case skid plate dropped any? that would cause the motor to be slightly leaned back putting the fan closer to the top of the shroud
did you measure the drop brackets? they might just be a little to long? i hate the drop brackets that come with body lifts, i just took the ones off the wife's mudding jeep with a 3" bl to move it back up to the stock location with dual e-fans to get away from the mechanical one
