Body lift help

Ok, so I've got the 2.5" Rough Country suspension lift on my TJ currently. When I bought the lift I also got a 1.25" body lift and the 1" mml. I haven't installed those two because I haven't needed to with just the 31's I currently have on there now. I understand the BL, it's simple and straight forward. Main concern is don't remove both sides at the same time to keep the tub aligned on the frame. With the mml, I don't know of anyone who's ever done it that could come help. So my main question is, how difficult is the mml? Also, is it really necessary to have it with just the 1.25" BL, or can I just slot the holes in the fan shroud and move it down back to centered with the fan? (noob)

I do not have the proper equipment to remove 1/4" from the mount bolt. Would it be sufficient enough to slot the holes on the fan shroud and move it down for the time being?

Didn't get around to it this weekend. I decided it would be cool to take off my factory side steps to give an illusion of it sitting higher. Well it worked, but I had to cut a bolt from the passenger side one with a hacksaw..... UGH

That's all you need to cut the 1/4" off the motor mount bolts. Exactly what I used.

I'm gonna give it a go this Sunday. Maybe Saturday, since my girlfriend is having her niece's birthday party at the house. I don't know how I'll handle 12 screaming 13 year old girls. So, BL and MML sound like a good compromise.

Not a bad deal at all

One more thng i wish i knew. Make sure you wear glasses and mybe a bandana or mask. Nothing is worse than battling ruat for an hour then have mud and shit fall in your eyes while your workin. Tapping anything will make stuff fall off.

Thanks man! I'll definitely get something over my eyes, nothing is worse than having dirt fall in your eye.
