    The ORD aluminum pucks have been around for quite a while now. The metal vs. AL. is not an issue. I also think the way they stack in that they may not even touck steel? I am not sure.

    I say no problem go with them.

    well

    i just ordered the steering box brace and the shackle flip hanger and there new shackles...THOSE ARE BAD ASS and i opted to wait on the body lift...but if yall think its fine i just thought the polyurathane mounts let the body "adjust" better than a piece of aluminum..Anyone know of any changes to be made to the rest of the truck such as transfer case linkage or any adjustments needed anywhere else..its only a inch..but i know on my wrangler 2'' threw a LOT of stuff off..thanks again.

    the chilton manuel helped me alot when i adjusted my tranny after i put on the new body mounts. all i had to do for the tranny is loosen the nut on the end of the rod and tap the rod out some more, tighten it back up and its good as new.

    After installing the ORD 1" body lift I had to adjust the transmission linkage as stated above, adjust the transfer case shifter, and do major surgery on the bottom half of the fan shroud. The aluminum to steel is a non issue.
