The B1 Body Lift by JKS offers an economical solution to tire clearance problems, without affecting center of gravity, spring rate or steering geometry like suspension modifications. Unlike universal designs commonly used by our competitors, JKS B1 Body Lifts are specifically designed to work in conjunction with the OE body mounts.
Our B1 Body Lifts actually provide 1.25" of additional tire clearance, as opposed to the standard 1" provided by other manufacturers. The Jeep® specialists at JKS have found this to provide the ideal amount of tire clearance without exceeding the safe working parameters for severe off-road use. Furthermore, no modifications are required to the fuel tank, air conditioning, radiator, or brakes, unlike taller body and suspension lifts.
Manufactured from premium Dura-Thane™ poly material with a hardness of 94 durometer, JKS B1 Body Lifts are designed to easily exceed the demands of four wheeling.

Price: $125.00
Pros: Good quality, Improves looks and clearance
Cons: A bitch to install without a Motor Mount Lift!!!!! <--- Seriously get one!!!!!!!!!!!!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My jeep alread had a 3.5 Inch lift but I decided I wanted a little more. I went with JKS because I have installed a few of their products and liked the quality.

Pros; The Pucks go in nice and smooth, no issues getting them on.

Cons; The Radiator bumpers are an absolute nightmare, at least they were for me. I spent 4 hours trying to get them to fit into the stock holes, pulling on them with vice grips, twisting, turning and forcing them to go in place. I ended up taking a dremel and cutting away some material to get them to go in and stay in. They arent as "squishy" as the original rubber but still maintain the same measurments making them seemingy impossible to get installed.

If you didnt get the motor mount kit - SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF TIME AND GET IT!!!! IM BEGGING YOU!I decided not to, what a mistake! I spent another few hours dicking around with the fan shroud and transfer case shifting bracket. Only to find its not shifting properly... which will need adjusting.

Overall : If you get the MML in conjunction with the body lift you will be fine. The 1.25 inches really dramatically changed the look of the Jeep. Now my jeep looks nice and aggressive, best of all, I dont have to worry about tearing my fender flares off - I have plenty of room to flex.

Price: $125.00
Pros: relatively quick and easy to install.
Cons: Installed at same time as JKS 1" MML, and still had t-case linkage issues. Had to shim entire transmission and t-case to fix issue. Doesn't use grade 8 bolts.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These seem pretty good, so far.

Installed at same time as JKS 1" MML, and still had t-case linkage issues. Had to shim entire transmission and t-case to fix issue. That was mildly annoying. I also wish the kit came with grade 8 bolts, and used the same size head for ALL of the bolts like the factory bolts do.

Price: $125.00
Pros: Cupped pucks mount securely onto the existing body mounts. Bolts are thick stainless, high quality poly.
Cons: Instructions are a bit lacking.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Couldn't be happier. All the hardware and pucks are of high quality, the pucks actually cup the mounts so it makes for an easier install. I had gotten these as a gift, I wanted the currie lift but I am glad I got theses instead.

Pros: easy install
Cons: smallish pucks, could be larger round;
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Actually it is an RC BL. The instructions should discuss the need to adjust the fuel filler neck. Other than that it was straight forward.

Price: $100.00
Pros: Cheap, easy, durable.
Cons: Body mount bolts can be a PITA to remove.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The pucks in this body lift are contoured to fit exactly over the existing rubber mounts. The kit comes with grade 5 bolts which is probably waaay more than plenty strong enough, but I replaced mine with grade 8. I love Fastenal.

There isn't much else you can say about a BL. It's a bunch of spacers and some bolts. This one gives you 1/4" more lift than most. Installation depends on the condition of your Jeep.

Pros: great workmanship
Cons: can't really think of any
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My only complaint is that I had a bear of a time getting the BL spacer on the body mount under the radiator to match up. Might have just been me, but I love the way the spacers conform to the OE body spacers.
