Body Lift

Im trying to decide whether to do a body lift or not. what all lines/cables/wires/hoses/ and seperate parts have to be changed...or taken off to do a bl? i already figured the tow hooks in the front and maybe the radiator shroud or sumthin.
thanks

most things will not have to be takin off, only the old factory body bolts. But you will get new brackets to lower the radiator to be square with the fan again, tow hooks can be modded to work in the factory location fro factory strength. Everything else really is left alone, except for the 3 body grounds, and the bumpers, and steering extension. all of which is in your kit.

there is no relocation for the tow hook, or at least ive not heard of one. You can either cut your valance to make them work, or jsut remove your valence all together.

I got my kit from a local off road shop

4wp has them for $160 http://www.4wheelparts.com/4wp/produ...pension&man=PA (scroll to bottom)

And naturally your center of gravity will be higher so, yes you will get a lil more of that tipsy feeling going around curves.

as for the slow, the kit itself will do nothing to slow it down, but the bigger tires you put on will obviously
