Body lift question..... *updated*

I installed what i assumed to be a Daystar 1" body lift a year ago but with the recent threads and picture regarding body lift heights I'm starting to think I may have ended up with more than I wanted.



My question is, does anyone know off hand the thickness of the stock body mounts or could someone with a true 1" BL measure their frame to body gap so I can verify what I actually have? The gap annoys me to no end and I want to fix it asap. Thanks!

I measured the stock mounts at the back of my jeep and they are 3/4" tall. You must have a 1 1/4" lift.
How do you like the Daystar lift? I was thinking of getting the same lift soon.

that looks like it has a rocker guard sitting on top of your body mount.

After looking at it and scratching my head I'm just going to raise the rear bumper I'm building to compensate for the BL and cover a big chunk of the gap if not all of it.

Jealousdad; thanks for the measurement! I am very satisfied with the body lift as I never liked the "puck under the stock body mount" configuration and prefer the one piece style BL's, thats just my opinion tho. The kit went on super easy and was complete with everything I needed including extra bolts and washers. I have no experience with the transfer case shifter bracket lowering piece tho as I bought an AdvanceAdapters transfer case relocation bracket to get rid of the stock setup.

Misfit; Not sure what you mean, the gold colored piece on top of the mount is a washer that came with the kit and every one of the mounts has one.

let me reassure you, you have a 1" body lift.
the tub has dimples for the body pucks to sit against. it looks like you have rocker guards, and the pucks are not sitting in the divots.
if you are building a swing out tire carrier bumper, dont worry about lifting it to cover the gap. the swing out will cover it.
if you are not building a swing out, dont raise it too much. it is there to keep you safe if you get rear ended.

My brother had a gap guard made for his by a welding shop.

Nope, no rocker guards and I did check to make sure the mounts were sitting in the divots properly. I am building a swing out tire carrier for the bumper but I still flipped the lower brackets over a bit to see what it would look like and it raised the bumper up a 1/2" so I think I'll go with that and let the swing out cover the rest.

Thats a good idea your bro had Boogie, covers the gap up and finishes it off nicely!
