I believe you would need a body lift for a tummy tuck, but not a motor mount lift. The SYE and CV shaft needs neither.

many TT's are going to require a MML + BL, in addition to the SYE/CV.

Okay, I didn't cover this in your other thread, but I'll go into more detail now. When I started with my Jeep stock, I had a long term plan in place to mod it. Phase 1 was the OME lift, and 33s on new wheels. I bought the Ultimate kit from Dirk at DPG offroad which included the suspension lift, JKS 1.25 BL, and JKS MML spacers. (along with track bars, quick discos, etc, etc.) In retrospect, I wish I had bought the brown dog motor mounts from him instead, but the spacers work fine.
Phase 1 put me on 33s with no rubbing or fender breaking and most importantly, no driveline vibrations with the stock components without having to do a TC skid drop, which was an absolute requirement. This also perfectly positioned me for phase 2.

Phase 2 was a Ford 8.8 rear axle, TT, SYE, regear to 4.56 with lockers.

I did it the way I did because I wanted an OME lift, and because I couldn't afford to do it all at once, so I did it in a way that allowed me to do it in phases. I have no regrets in the way I've set my rig up. It performs very well offroad and is comfortable to drive on road.

Does that help answer you question?

I addition, I know that a BL does not require a MML, but if you don't do it you'll have to modify your fan shroud. Mine ran perfectly with the BL and MML without having to mod it until I did my TT, then I ended up having to enlongate the shroud holes anyway because the fan started hitting the shroud due to the rear of the engine being lifted up.

So in summary, your choices as I see them are.

1) Do the BL, do not do the MML. = modify the shroud.
2) Do the BL & ML. = Maybe have to modify the shroud after the TT.

Either way the MML will help decrease the driveline angle.

Ageless Stranger-Did you have to get a new driveshaft when you did your TT? I thought that was a requirement when you get s SYE?

Yes. I bought a Tom Wood driveshaft. Love it. Smooth as butter.
