Motor Mount Lift question

I have been doing a bit of reading and just wanted to make sure what I read was correct.

Sitting in my living room I have an OME 2.5-3" suspension and a JKS 1.25" body lift.

Now if I pic up a 1" Motor mount lift do I not have to worry about the Tcase drop plus I can leave the fan shroud and shifter linkage alone? Is this a better route to take than the Tcase drop adapter? Any pros/cons.


If so here are my options....are the more expensive worth it?

Motor Mount Lift by Rubicon Express and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

1" Motor Mount Lift by Currie Enterprises and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

Torsion Rubber Style BombProof Motor Mounts by Mountain Off-Road Enterprises and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware


Once again thanks for the feedback!

A 1" MML might be enough by itself to eliminate the need for the t-case skidplate drop but no guarantees. Yes you could likely leave the fan shroud in place too even though you're installing a body lift, there are a few nice benefits to a MML.

Of the MMLs you list, my previous Currie MML broke at the weld (too bad I didn't learn to weld sooner!) so I replaced it with MORE's rubber "Bombproof" mounts which are awesome and a truly heavy-duty mount that is well worth the $$$. Do avoid the polyurethane version which only transmits vibrations. My MORE mounts have been fine for probably 7 years now.

You may or may not need the T-case drop. The motor mount lift should help, but every Wrangler is different.

Thanks for the responses so far.


Now I would prefer not to do a Tcase drop since the idea kills me of spending the $ to go a few inches up just to loose 1" by dropping the Tcase. Now risking sounding like a complete moron. If I do the MML and still get some bad vibes....can I just toss on the T-case drop in addition to the MML?

Yes you can. But you may be able to just use a couple washers instead of the 1'' drop.

I have the 2.5 (ish)/ JKS 1.25bl with the 1'' jks mml. I didn't need a t=case drop at all but as stated every jeep is different.

I've been with many jeepers with the kit and no t-case drop. Good luck.

So....If i do a RE 3.5" standard Lift i will still need to use the 1" T-case drop regardless of a 1" MML correct? Also would it benefit me to do a 1"MML?

I have a 1" BL on the Jeep idk if that matters.

An RE 3.5" lift is closer to 4 to 4.5" in reality so I strongly doubt if even both a 1" t-case drop and a 1" MML is going to be enough to keep the vibes away. That height is really where you should be also installing a SYE kit and longer CV driveshaft.
