2.5L idles high after installing body lift

I just got done installing a RC 1.25" body lift on my TJ, also have a 1" MML but not going to be able to get to it tonight.

Anyway, I cranked it up after the lift was done to take a trip down the road and as soon as it cranked, it stayed at 1500-1550rpm. It usually idles at 750-800rpm.

What could make it idle so high after installing a body lift?

Hold your cheeks apart with your hands while you push and scream at the top of your lungs. I also like to put my feet up on the wall and push against the toilet. Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.

You probably pulled a vacuum line loose when doing the body lift.

Check for loose hoses or any open barb fittings on the intake manifold.
