Questions on lift.

I have a 92 YJ with a 4" rough country lift and 33" M/T's. My question is - if I installed a 1" body lift what would I have to change?

You may have to trim your fan shroud a bit. may have to adjust your shift linkage.

I didn't have to do anything except trim 1/2 off the bottom of fan shroud. with 1-1/4" body lift.

I would think the linkage to the transfer may have to be altered due to the body being raised. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Well assuming you buy a complete kit from someone it will most likely have instructions, follow them. If your buying a puck kit you may want to buy some new bushings as well. Daystar makes a real nice 1 1/4" kit comes with everything you need. Need to watch for harness stretch, linkage if you have an auto, radiator shroud, maybe shifter extensions if you dont like how far down they drop. I am also assuming you already have a t-case drop with your 4" lift. T-case shifter drops real low with a t-case drop and body lift. May also have to adjust the shifter cowls a little.

I did a 1" lift and I just had to cut a little gap in the shroud for the bottom radiator hose. Didnt have to fully trim it.

Also, the powersteering resevoir was really tight, so mine is only held on with one bolt instead of two. I just moved it down so the top hole is where the bottom hole would have went. I may have had to trim something there because of how it's molded to fit ... I vaugly recall.

This was with the 1" daystar kit.

you know a 1" shackle lift is way eaiser and works just fine. I fit 35's with a 4" suspension lift, 1.25" shackle lift and cut the rear to fit tj flares.
