Jks or daystar bl

I'm looking for a good body lift no taller then 1 1/2" at the most. Something full replacement.

I eventually want a belly tuck and gas tank lift.

Do u think I should lift the motor as well?

We don't have your jeep specs but usually when you do a belly tuck it raises the rear transfer case output shaft, which changes the rear driveshaft angles so you might end up with vibes. Lift motor mounts will help put the angles back to stock. you can try the tuck and see how it goes.

Currently it has a gehy 3" bl only. I plan on 1" h&r springs and a 1" bl with tube flares (on there way assembled from ccfab)
I'm planning 33 10.50 15s, with a 4cyl auto I'm thinking the lack of width might help power.

So are daystar and jks about equal? I'm ordering one or the other tommorow. Can't take the big pucks I got.

The Daystar supposed to be full replacement poly body mounts which raise the body 1" over stock.

The JKS BL is a set of poly pucks which get mounted on top of the OE rubber mounts. So they need to be a) still there and b) in good condition as well.
Advantage here ... less vibrations get transferred to the body and you still have some flexibility instead of the more rigid Daystar poly mounts.

But both are good ... as are Aluminium Currie BL pucks and Aluminium Savvy BL pucks which get added to the OE rubber as well!

( and even some use non tapered poly pucks as well )
