No, no one was saying you were going to die...they were saying it looks like crap with a huge gap between the body and frame. They were also saying that lifting the body that high is naturally going to cause shift linkage problems.



I'm actually surprised you didn't have more problems. Neutral

The linkage problem was an easy fix, all I had to was spray some liquid wrench and loosen up the bolt holding the linkage right below the 4 wheel drive shifter and slid it out a little and it seems to be working perfectly right now. Ive tested it a couple of times and it works, so hopefully I wont run into any other problems. And the look of it I can deal with until I get a suspension lift into it, which hopefully will be by summer.

My bad, I meant the shifter hitting the console...but yea, the TC linkage is a fairly easy fix...and I think Skyjunker has a kit out now thats called a "Transfer Case Shifter Correction Bracket" for the TJ. It says it's self supported, and removes the linkage from the body where it's originally located....I dunno, sounds like it could work Confused

Transfer Case Shifter Correction Bracket for TJ (It's a Quadratec link.)

I know that but a few people were talking like I was going to die when I drove this thing on the highway.

Wait until you hit something.

Another vehicle, a wall, a jersey barrier, or some other large heavy object that won't push out of your way easily.

The 3" body lift puts a lot more leverage on your body mounts. I can't find the pics right now of the Toyota pick up with a 3" BL where the cab came off the frame.

Ill take the chance. No matter what if I hit something like that my car is going to be totalled or very close to it, especially if I hit something like that on the highway.

actually it will depend upon the speed at which you are traveling, it actually takes a good bit of force to "total" a vehicle, but ehirner is right the body lift will be pretty stressful on things

It's not a car. It's a Jeep. And a high speed impact will increase the leverage on the mounts.
