Here is a diagram of where all your body mounts are located.

Here you can see the body mount that attaches to the rear crossmember on the driver side is completely gone.

Daystar 1" Body Lift
(1976-1986 Jeep CJ7)

By the time this old CJ made it into my hands, the factory rubber body mounts were all rotten, cracked, falling apart or worse.... non-existant!! Driving it around, the entire tub would bounce and clang with every bump I hit, large or small. Needless to say, all of them needed to be replaced and I decided now was as good a time as any to give my Jeep a 1" body lift while I was at it. That's why I decided to get a Daystar 1" kit as the polyurethane mounts they provide completely replace the existing factory mounts.

What You Will Need
• Daystar 1" Body Lift Kit
• Hi-Lift Jack or bottle Jack with concrete blocks
• 2x4 piece of wood
• PB Blaster
• Standard Socket Set
• Socket Extension

1. If you live in an area where rust is just a part of automotive life, be sure to hit all the body mount with a good amount of PB Blaster a day before you start this project.

2. Start your body lift by parking your Jeep on level ground and block your wheels just to make sure nothing moves. It is very important that the ground is level.

3. If your CJ has one, unbolt your radiator fan shroud and let it hang loose.

4. Loosen but DO NOT remove all the body mount bolts. There are 11 total: (1) up front, (3) on each side of the tub, (2) between the rear tires just in front of the gastank next to the shocks and (2) located at the rear corners of your Jeep.

5. At this point, I went through all my bolts, washers, pucks, etc. and sorted them out. I then placed them around my Jeep where each part would go so that I wouldn't need to leave my tub in the air while I went looking for what I needed.

6. Now, start removing all the body mount bolts on the driver side only and then jack up your tub ever so slightly using a 2x4 piece of wood between the edge of your tub and the jack. I used a Hi-Lift but if you don't have one, you can use the bottle jack that comes with your Jeep but you will most likely need to use a concrete block to help you out. It is very important to jack VERY SLOWLY (especially when using a Hi-Lift) and just enough to remove the existing rubber mounts and install your new taller mounts. Be sure that you assemble/install the new mounts exactly as is described and shown in the instructions provided by Daystar. Thread in the bolts by hand but do not tighten these bolts all the way at this time.

7. Repeat step 6 on the passenger side and then be sure to install the new puck up front. The two body mounts underneath the tub can be a bit tricky to reach and a 12" socket extension comes in real handy here.

8. Tighten all your body mount bolts

9. If you have a fan shroud, you will need to lower it by an inch before you re-install it or else it will be in contact with your fan blades. The best and easiest way to do this is to just drill new holes 1" above the existing ones and use them to mount it back onto the radiator.

That should be it! This is a very simple to do mod and I did it completely by myself in about 45 min. Please let me know if you have any questions.
