You need a body mount bushing kit. And there are 11 mounting points of the body to the frame. I know I did it last fall/winter (93 YJ). About 100 bucks and up for a kit. I got the urethane ones, They are stiffer and last eons. You should drill a small hole above them and soak the livin hell out of them with something like WD-40 for a couple weeks before. YOU WILL PROBABLY SNAP MOST OF THE BOLTS OFF. Unless you have one with little rust. You will need a torch, a body panel saw, a friend or two, and someone to MIG weld the body steel you'll have to cut and peel up to access the top nuts. I had access to a hoist which really really helped. Oh and be prepared to use a tap or die to clean the threads up you don't snap off. Figure a couple days so you can take your time and do it right cause you won't wish to do it for awhile after. Good luck.

You're in Wisconsin, OP is in California.

You story's invalid.

EDIT: Also, you're read poorly. Who uses WD-40? PB Blaster, fool.

Welcome to the forum, Fouse.

You will find that many people on here will be very glad to help you. I am pretty sure there is a thread on here, maybe on FAQ that shows photos etc on how to replace your body mount bushings, either with stock, or with a body mount lift kit. I'll look for it and link it in shortly if I can find it.
PB blaster is the Jeepers friend, most of us use it as cologne as well. It comes in a spray can with a little red spray straw and can be purchased at most quality auto parts stores, and I have also seen it in places like Wallyworld. Don't expect a quick spurt to be enough, you need to soak the bolt threads a few times over a few days for best results. PB is "penetrating fluid." To access some of the 11 body mount bolts, you may have to drill a straw sized hole thru a body panel, the tub floor or the side of the frame to be able to get the straw in the right place and apply PB magic.

Here is the link from the FAQ: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/b...-w-pix-705291/

Most complete body mount kits or body lift kits contain all the new hardware, etc. They should since the bolts are longer in the body lift kits. You can purchase these from places like Quadratec, etc. I am sure that numerous people will chime in with further recommendations/sources. As with all things Jeep, don't be in a hurry, and when you reassemble, consider applying a dab of grease or antiseize in the appropriate places. Blue threadlocker as well will help to keep out rust from freezing fasteners as well, believe it or not.
