Body Lift brand differences

Hi All, I've been contemplating adding a 1" body lift to the Jeep, and am hoping you folks can provide some info/feedback on the differences between the various manufacturers kits. I've seen kits from M.O.R.E., JKS, Performance Accessories, Skyjacker, Teraflex and others. The prices vary, and some seem to come with spacers and brackets, and others seem to only include spacers. I'm a little at a loss here, and have a birthday coming up, so any info, reviews, opinions, you all could provide would be greatly appreciated.


'99 TJ Sport, 4.0 I6, 5 speed manual transmission, Hi Lift w/offroad kit, Viair 450C compressor, Garmin GPS, Skid Row Engine/Transmission, steering box & radiator skid plates, Kilby gas tank plate, AtoZ Fab full length rocker guards, Performance Accessories 1" Body Lift, OME 2.5" HD springs & shocks, JKS trackbars front & rear, BFG AT 33x12.5r15, EBC Yellow pads and Centric rotors

You just answered your own question.Some come complete and others don't.Some come with poly spacers,some come with aluminum and some with nylon.Performance Accessories comes with durable nylon spacers and EVERYTHING you need (radiator/tcase shifter relocation brackets)for an easy install.The price is cheaper too.Even Jerry B. says they are good.I've put them on 4 Jeeps now and never had a problem.

JKS all the way.

I had a Daystar, which is the same as the Perf Accessories kit, and it being a all repalcement, poly kit, it transmitted a lot of noise, vibration and harshness (abbreviated as NVH) through to the body and drove me crazy.

The JKS uses poly pucks that work in combination the the stock rubber mounts, to provide factory-like dampening of NVH.

I sell 'em in my store
