so at this point Im thinking of doing a 1" body lift and 1" motor mount lift cause in the future I'd like to do a transfercase skid lift and a gas tank skid lift so If I had to replace the mount now,id go with a bl and mml



what needs to be done besides adding the bl and mml?
Extending lines/wires/hoses?
Fan shroud?

Sure would, that's a great upgrade. I'd recommend BD's rubber mounts.

could I get away with welding the broken one for now
It may have been cracked for the last 200k miles

that or these, be sure to get rubber mounts, not the polyurathane.
