Here the thread that has the similar setup as the above link, this is how I did my setup. It's pretty cheap around $6 for the setup.

Cheap Body Lift

Looking for a 1" Body lift that you can make/do youself for that little extra tire clearance. Not quite sure it will work on the jeep(due to diameter clearances), But a buddy of mine did it on a late 70's Chevy Pick up.

Hockey pucks(3" diameter, 1" thick). Drill out the center, buy longer bolts, I think there are 11 connecting the body to the frame on a TJ. I think pucks run about $1.00 last I saw.

Jeep Wave

'99 TJ Sport 4.0L 5 Speed, Soft Top Only(usually down) Full doors(usually off) Currently running nearly stock, with 31" Oversized tires, Poison Spyder 3" Steel Fenders, and a Jeeperman 46" Front bumper, ARB Safari Snorkel, CB, Sirius, CJ turn signals.


Awating installation: Borla header and complete exhaust system. Saving for: 4.5" lift, 35" tires, Jeeperman Rear Bumper/Swing-a-way tire carrier, and rock rails

talking about a body lift... it could be possible, but squeaking and creaking will almost assuradly be everpresent if you dont do it with the proper equipment. Also, a hockey puck is 3 inches wide, where a jeeps body lift bushings are around 1.5 - 2 inches, so they dont stick out past the body and frame.

This might not qualify as a "mod" but today I figured out how to clean the dirt out of the heater vents. They pop right out. You can remove them and clean em in the sink.

I created a page with pictures on how to do it. HERE IT IS

Cheers, Steve

Shift knob

Bad *** shift knob I made from an old dirt bike piston I had laying around



I'm thinking of using a lawn mower or trimmer piston for the transfer case shifter

My FM antenna was chipping my paint from vibrating at highway speeds so I took off the antenna, cut it down to about 6", painted it black and screwed it back in. You won't get good reception but it looks nice. I solved that problem by getting xm radio.

Made a shifter knob out of a baseball.

Put baseball in a vice and bored out a hole halfway through with a spade bit in a hand drill.

Matched the stock shifter knob capture nut at the hardware store to get a couple more - 3 total and threaded them all onto the bare shifter. Once all were stacked on, cover in duct tape to keep them from changing their relative position to each other.

Put JBweld into hole in baseball and jammed the ball onto the stack of nuts.

After drying I had a very nice looking shifter knob. Best part is that I can rotate it to hold four seam, two seam, curveball, slider, split finger, etc. grips while driving. Great mindless entertainment.

I'd post pictures but - I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW!

2" lift

I thought it would be fun....but not this much!

Meat, can you post some info about that Instant Power? Is that a power inverter to run things on AC?

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

It is a Schumacher 750 watt DC to AC power Inverter. I hardwired the positive to the battery with 4gage wire and grounded it to the seatbelt bolt in front of it. I got it at Fleet farm, but an not sure how much it was anymore. I have not really used it for anything yet, just played around a bit. It is a modifed sine wave, so supposidly it is safe for most electronics.
