  • Body Lift

    I thought I might go ahead and install a body lift on my CJ 5 while I'm doing all this other stuff with it.

    Anyone ever use mine belt for a body lift.

    For those of you not from WV, mine belt is conveyor belt.

    I have a bunch of samples from a load I hauled.

    It's about 1/2 inch thick.

    I was going to cut it into squares and stack it on each other to get me about 1 or 1 1/2 in of lift.

    I've seen it done back when I was a kid. I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work.

    i say go ahead and go with a kit. one that replaces the body mounts. that way you get all the brackets and stuff and the piece of mind that you know it's safe.

        I personally would not make a body lift out of non-automotive items like that for an on-road vehicle. It'd probably work fine, but if you were ever in an accident, the lawyers would have a field day with you.

        Also, by the time you buy grade 8 bolts & other brackets, you're going to be almost half the cost of a body lift anyway.

        Seems to be a good kit out there. You will need new hardware if you do it yourself without a kit. I think JC witney has one cheaper, or try ebay.
        Don't post links to other suppliers! That's just plain disrespectful as this forum is provided by

        Here's a listing of body lifts 4wd Hardware sells for CJ's.

          I like the kit that I put on from 4wd. It totaly replaces the stock mounts with ones of the same design, only they are one inch taller. clean install.
