why the body lift? JKs dont need body lifts. you can fit 35's with pretty much no mods, and properly with 2inch suspension lift and rims......

What size lift are you running? Body lift on a JK is not necessary unless you need to run 40" plus tyres.
Go taller suspension lift before even thinking of body lift.

Dumb move...... everything that attaches to the body and chassis is going to be stretched... steering, brakes, wiring,fuel lines etc etc..... and if its a manual the shifter will also be lowered in relationship to the console, bigger gaps between bumpers etc.......

Its the sort of "solution" used on vehicles where doing the job properly isn't an option.
