You know, it makes you wonder why people talk so much crap about just 3" body lift on jeeps with stock motors. But that had 5" body lift and a big block in a drag jeep and still held up?!

Just saying....I still wouldn't run more than a 1" BL though

yes, you are correct, 2 hockey pucks take up 2 inches, but the stock body mount takes up around 1 inch, so without the stock rubber mount it would only be 1 inch of body lift

and thanks for the compliment

nice rig
Yeah, but he said that he was not using the stock body mounts, so one of them pucks would replace the mount and the 2nd one would add about and 1 inch. That means it would be less than 2 inches.
