Nope. Extend fuel filler neck, drop radiator shroud, not to mention possible wiring and shifter modification. Stick with 1".

Though I agree with that choice...

I had to do most of those... even with the 1" BL...

Exception was the fill neck... (which only needed to be spaced out with some washers on the mount bracket)... And the steering extension... (which I installed anyhow)...

Rad. drop really was a must... (Too close to the fan blades for comfort... IMO)... as well as relocating the shifter plate rearward 1/2" and trimming the rearward opening 1/4" (maybe different for autos :dunno: )...

No wiring issue with a 1" BL... But much more possible as you attempt a 2" or better...

I'd also recommend or consider replacement of the OEM Body mounts to the E.S. Body Mounts... Especially on trucks with high mileage or simply older... (Tired OEM stuff just moves to much... IMO)
( I had to do shiat twice when I failed to do this the 1st time :rolleyes: )

Stick to the 1" BL... For ease of installation and durability/reliabilty... and safety... ;)

You can't go wrong with the 4crawler BL. Excellent service and much better than any other kit out there.

What is the best way to jack up the body? On some links it looks like people are using the old bumper jacks to jack up the body.

Just put something soft (like a towel) between the body and the jack. And only lift enough to slide the pucks in.
