Landcruiser Advanced Handling in Albany Oregon used to sell a 2 1/2 inch body lift.

I made my own which has been on my cruiser since 1994 (cost = $40 approximately).

PS I welded the body lift to the frame for extra security <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

hockey pucks work too ..
just stack two on each attaching point and bam you got a body lift ..
i will say i dont like body lifts your better off doing suspension lift or cutting to fit ..
keep it low and cut it to fit <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0">

LC4WD in Albany Oregon still has them for sale. I got mine from Ross years ago and have never had a problem with it. Putting the body lift on gave me more room to tuck the exhaust up away from everything. I would save the money and make your own though. The kit I got years ago was $125. You can use aluminum tubing or steel tubing and grade 8 bolts and cut your cost to about $40 bucks.

i made mine out of 50x50 millimetre square steel tube, which i just cut into blocks and drilled a hole through - cheap and effective. Those two go together so well in my eyes <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I used 2x2x1/4" square tubing. Drilled a hole through the middle, used longer better grade bolts, and then welded them to the frame.
I would box the ends if I ever did it again or actually had the time.
I used steel plates to lift the fenders.

Sorry no pics, I looked but couldn't find any in digital format.
