Easy.
Pointless with such a massive bodylift. Go with no or only 1" bodylift.

+3" Trail Master. Fox 8.0" R/R shocks. ORA HD winchbumper. Warn M8274 Ox-motor + Hellfire gears, Delta-Tek mainshaft and freespool, overvolted. 33/9.5 R16 Silverstone Extreme. 5.14:1 ratio SJ transferbox in RW cradle. OMP rollcage.

I'm not aware of a bolt-on solution to extend the shfter(s)... easiest way is to cut it and weld in a suitable sized piece of bar, and you may have to bend it a bit as well to account for the new position of the transmission tunnel...

he fitting different axles and 31s so some reason that means he needs a massive lift when a 3" suspension lift will do and he will have the added benefit if he sets up right on the new axle to have plenty of room, I bet hes one of these ones that thinks a massive lift is cool and can show if off down the pub then wonders y its on its roof at a pay and play day lol

Id remove my bodylift if it wasn't for my 6 point external rollcage. I lowered my suspension from 4.5" to 3" as it was stupid high on 31" tyres. I think just a 3" lift is perfect.

mine were 29.5 when new and theres plenty of room for bigger at very most I would do a 1" lift if really needed after the tyres went on but a hammer to the arches would be first thing done before

Why fit a 3" bodylift.
Mine currently has a 2" bodylift on 32" tyres and I'm currently thinking of removing it.


Better make your mind up if you're adding that external cage soon ;)

Most upgraded and best looking.. ?? seriously.

Putting on Y60 axles on a Jimny is not an upgrade, it's a downgrade. You add tons of unsprung weight to what's supposed to be a light and narrow vehicle. Of course it's your choice, it just doesn't make much sense, and it does not make it better offroad. But perhaps better looking down by the pub? ;)

You could easily sell those axles on devon4x4 forum and have money for uprated internals for the Jimny axles.

Ladies ladies ... Play nice.

If OP wants to upgrade his truck in whatever way he wants, then give him constructive criticism but do you really need to put him down ?

Personally though, unless you "Need" to go for a +3", I would stick with a +2" lift as the amount of modifications that need to be done are a lot less. Infact little Ooky never had any when she went +2". the only thing I had to do was bend and extend the transfer lever
