need info on 3" body lift

the jeep i just bought has a 3" b/l as well as suspension lift which i believe is 3" also. i am deabting of just buying a 1" or even 1.25" b/l to replace the 3". the main reason for this because i believe it would look better but also when the lift was done theyhad to notch out the hole in the firewall where steering shaft come through and it is really annoying me. was the opening of this hole necesary on the 3" b/l. know the rubber grommet is no longer in there and i dont like that you can just see right through it. i believe i can bend the piece back that was cut to be able to reinstall a new grommet if putting a 1.25" lift on would rectify this problem.

Good call....I'd ditch the 3" BL and go with a 1.25

IMO I don't see a need for such a big BL...
