The body lift looks like it was done only a year or 2 ago so the bolts shouldn't be that bad. Just wondering about any linkages or any thing like that i should keep a look out for thanks

Loosen the bolts all the way around the Jeep, Then jack up one entire side, replace all of the mounts on that side, then move to the other side.

The whole task should only take you about 30-45 minutes.

Glad to hear of another person removing a huge body lift......hopefully it ends up in the garbage and isn't passed on to another forum member.....*hint hint*.

If the PO installed it correctly there should also be some brackets on the rad to remove. With an auto there isn't a whole lot more to consider I don't think. Just watch your brake lines off the master cylinder when you raise the tub to remove the blocks and also when you lower it to the new height.

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D

I did a little more research on the body lift, and passed on the lift. Newbie mistake, and jumped the gun a bit. So JW, don't worry.

You may have to check ALL your body to frame linkages as the body lift removal will lessen your frame to body distance. (clutch linkage, radiator hoses, shifters etc...)

For all you looking to ditch the body lift, I have a brand new set of Poly stock size mounts I'd let go for cheap if wanted. I bought a full bushing set and ended up only using a few because I went with a fiberglass tub.
