Jeep Wrangler 1″ Body Lift Installation Instructions

March 31st, 2010 · No Comments

1. PLASTIC RADIATOR FAN SHROUD: The fan will hit the lower portion of the fan shroud. Before starting installation, Remove the 4 screws that hold the fan shroud to the radiator allowing the fan shroud to be lowered once body lift is completed. Make sure fan is clear of fan shroud before beginning. See instruction No. 12.
2. Loosen body mount bolts on one side of vehicle and remove bolts from opposite side using a 5/8” socket for positions 1,5 and 6 (ref. Fig.1 on page 2) and a ū” socket for positions 2, 3 and 4. Use a long extension to remove mounts next to gas tank. Place 2×4 between jack and body to spread out load and jack up body on the side you have removed the bolts from just far enough to remove mounts. The bolts on the opposite side will help ensure that the body does not shift. CAUTION: Open Hood while jacking up the body to make sure that the fan doesn’t hit the shroud. Also, watch that hoses and wires are not stretched. The dip-stick head can be pinched so remove dipstick while doing installation. When lifting the side of the vehicle that the fuel filler is on, keep a close eye not to stretch, tear or pull too far on the hose connection.)
