I keep reading about having to mod a radiator bracket or something if I put on a body life on my 2003 TJ. Anybody ran into this? what did you do... got pics?

Most common brand name BL's come with some sort of spacer to support the radiator itself.

If you install a BL by itself, then you have to modify the plastic shroud around the fan. As you lift the body the shroud lifts also. Its just a matter of drilling new holes in the plastic that equall the BL difference ie:1" or 1-1/4".


If you install 1" MML at the same time then this isnt an issue...nothing to modify.

MORE offers a deal usually when you buy both together. but, if you see major mods in your future then i'd maybe check out JKS's 1 1/4" body lift. it doesn't seem like much of a difference but that 1/4" can help out a lot if you ever attempt putting in a flat belly-up transfer case skidplate.
