Post Body Lift??? (Hockey Puck)

Has anybody used Hockey pucks for a 1" body lift?...I read somewhere that you can drill a hole in the center and pick up some bolts to do a body lift...what are the dangers of this?

Never heard of that but I don't see why you couldn't. All a body lift is are blocks of plastic. I would think that hockey pucks would be more expensive though. How much do they run?

Yes it works -- I did that on a 76 Chevy Blazer I had years ago. Drill the hole large enough to fit your bolt through, I had one split on me soon after I did it. Otherwise it held up fine - truck went to the junkyard 4 years later with the lift still there. When I did my lift I think I paid about $2 per puck. Dont but the NHL team pucks, buy the cheapest you can find, they're all the same.

I'm replacing the body of my CJ now, and the new body mount kit I'm using the stock mounts are the same thickness as a hockey puck, so I don't think you will gain anything.

1979 CJ7 (YJ tub) full cage, Currie 9inch rear with Warn full float kit, detroit locker, 456 gears both ends, Lockrite in front, T 18 trans, 360, 040 over, Isky cam, 2 into 1 Flowmaster exhaust

I'm not as good as I once was....but I'm good once as I ever was.

Hockey pucks run @ $1.99 a piece plus bolts, there are 11 points between the body and the frame so $22.00 plus bolts, (how much does a grade 8 bolt, about 3" run?)...I think it'll be less than a "name brand" body lift. Crash&Burn...You put the puck between the body mount and the body...on top of the stock rubber.

Now that I read more...It says, for bolts, I need

6 bolts @ 4-3/4"x1/2"
5 bolts @ 3-5/8"x7/16"

Here's the link, It's a great site with a lot of info on mod installations... http://www.bc4x4.com/faqs/yj.cfm?cat=2&faqid=8
