Default move the engine?

ok so I know the body lift doesnt move the engine but doesnt it make the engine in an okward place with the body. i saw all those wires and tubes today going from the engine into the body. it looked like if you do the body lift all those things will have to be lengthened am i right? if you can understand what im asking.
-thanks

No you don't need to move anything but the radiator and the kit comes with it (or should)

I didn't notice anything tighten or loose slack to the point of looking awkward or stressed when I helped install a BL on a friends truck. I don't think a 3" BL will really really do anything negative in that regard. They give you parts to lengthen all the parts that have to be, in order to function to their potential.

Default Re: move the engine?

Only things that need addressed in the engine bay is the radiator(the kit drops the radiator to be in the same place as stock with the engine), the engine ground next to your window wiper motor(drop bracket included in the kit, or just move it to the lower stud), and possibly the positive wiring harness down to the starter(unbolt off block). You could include the steering extention too. EVERYTHING is covered in the instructions, and links to the instructions are found in the lifting section in a thread called "3" bodylift extravaganza" or something like that. Not to pester or whatever, but everything you post up threads asking about BL's is in that thread.


The body moves up 3"...engine stays in it's stock place.......
