Fiberglass body mount heights

I am getting ready to put back on my fiberglass cj5 body. I have the frame and engine all restored, but am not sure what heights the rubber body mounts should be cut at. The rubber tubing mounts that were on there are all different sizes. I just want 1" lift from it.

Are all the mounts the same height? or are they different depending on the location of the mount??

THanks in advance,

D

Depends on the body brand, I know on my 4wd hdw ont you cut the one's under the doors first then then measure and cut the others, I think you start @2 " for the 1st one. Call 4wd harware tech support to be sure

Thanks, I called 4wd hardware, and they said that the 2 and 3 mounts (the ones under the rear seat area) are supposed to be cut to 2 1/8" then cut to fit the rest leaving 1/8" for compression.

I put on a glass body on my CJ5 from 4wd hardware, I didn't like the look of my Jeep with what the company said they should be, looked too much like a body lift, cut mine in half and it looks good....

Yeah, 4wd told me that 2 1/8 would give me about 1" body lift. I didn't want that so I cut them at 1 1/8. It turned out just how I wanted it. It was tricky, take your time and measure a couple of times. I think you do the front mounts last. If you tighten the front down and then the back, the bolts will pull right through the fiberglass in the front.

I have pics if you want to see mine. bhipp@clevelandbrowns.com
