Preparing for Medics skid.

Figure the M.O.R.E. (JM600L) mml would be the best…

Trying to make a decision between Teraflex 1” aluminum or JKS 1.25” Durathane lift.

Personally I like the teraflex w/ aluminum, but will I regret not getting the extra .25” of lift later?

Any opinions, comments or suggestions?

Thanks

I would go with the JKS personally. I am not a fan of metal anything BL's. Less vibrations coming through the cab.

I have the JKS on mine, no issues with it. Do I think there is a big difference between 1' and 1 1/4" inch, not really until you start looking at tight clearances. Then that extra 1/4" may matter. I got the JKS because it fits over the stock mounts (has a recess for them). They are really solid under the body, feels like it is on the stock mounts as far as stability.

Go with the aluminum. You will not have any vib issues and they look good! JMHO

Body Lift

Doesn't the Rubi have some sort of BL on it stock? And will replacing the rubber on it now with 1" new BL help a great deal?

whatroc?!, Jeeps come with Rubber Bushings stock, when you add a 1" BL you put them on top of the bushings. A body lift does nothing other than help you gain clearance. It allows you to go up a size in tire, put new belly up skids on, raise your gas tank somewhat, and has a few other benefits. The downside to them is they raise you COG (center of gravity) and anything over a 1" BL looks bad, IMO.

Body Lifts

What confused me was reading the directions from Daystar - I have seen pics showing the aluminum spacers on top of the bushings, then reading a set of instructions from Daystar it calls for removing the bushings and replacing the bushings with their BL poly spacers. Guess it sounded like a stupid question to begin with but figured my brain was dead today:)

There are a few BL that require you remove the factory bushings. Daystar may very well be one of them.

although a bodylift raises the COG, raising the body alone is only a fraction of the weight of the equivilent raise in suspension lift.
