One inch body lift and auto Trans ?

I put a 1.25 inch body lift and 1 inch mml on my TJ and MML was a pita due to A/C. I didn't need to mess with transfer case linkage or fan shroud.

On my LJ I want to put on a one inch body lift but NO MML. Will I need to mess with transfer case linkage with one inch? I figure I will need to mess with fan shroud. If so on the transfer case linkage, it is difficult?

Get under there and look at how the linkage attaches to the body.. its part of the shaft pivot. The body lift should come with a lowering bracket you put on to lower that pivot down a little.

The tcase shifter mechanism is normally ok with a 1" or 1.25" body lift. I've run two TJs with 1" body lifts without the tcase shifter binding.

Thanks Jerry, I think you answered that one for me before, but it keeps eluding me every time I see it.

When you install the body lift be sure to place the transfer case shift lever in neutral and you'll probably need to adjust it when you're done... HTH
