They make a special unibody body lift. It isn't like the pucks on a standard body lift. I had one on my old unibody Cherokee. Call any off-road shop, they can hook you up :thumbup:

If it is that easy why don't you just buy the brackets and build your own from there?

Are you redoing your lower axle mounts? A 3/4 hiem will be too narrow for the factory axle brackets. I personally would go bigger on the frame side. 3/4 is a small joint to take all the stress of the entire axle since there is only 2 per axle that hold it to the frame.
