What to expect with a body lift install:
There are a few issues to be dealt with when installing a body lift. The biggest thing is that the radiator must be relocated. Relocation brackets for the radiator can be as simple as a piece of metal with two holes drilled in them:
Radiator Relocation Bracket

This must be done because the body moves up, but the fan stays put, if you don't move the shroud/radiator the fan will chew it to pieces. In some cases it may be necessary to trim the floorboard around the shifter some to allow full movement between gears. Normally less than 1/8" of material needs to be removed, sometimes none. The other thing to watch is the vacuum hose to the brake booster, in some cases the current line is not long enough. TJs sometimes require adjustment of the shift linkage to the transfer case.
