As I get into my Baja project, I find things I need to fix, and run across ideas I may want to include,

I'm at the body off stage, and I'm trimming the fat off the girl, and I was thinking about a body lift, I've seen it mentioned,here, and other places, but no real description of how it is actually done.

Any help?

A body lift is really simple. Its just a 3"x1.5" tubing between the body & pan. You can buy the cheap version of the body lift for around $200, we build a much stronger version for $325. The only other thing you have to do is buy a couple of u-joints for the steering shaft (the right way), or cut another hole in the fire wall and drop the column down (it works, but its kind of a hack job way of doing it).

Well, since I am converting an SB to a linkpin front suspension, and doing some major rust repair (for me, I'm new at this) it would not be hard to add this in.

Is it full length along the pan/body interface? Where can I see pics?
