Something that I have not been able to find, can you install a MML without a BL?

Yes. You'll have to move the fan shroud though.

I did my 1.25 bl about a month ago with the 1" mm, only took a couple hours easy install and made the perfect height with the 3.5" lift

1998 4.0 5 speed, Superior super 35 rear, Superior super 30 front, yukon air lockers x2. 3" Terra Flex suspension lift, 1.25" BL, 1" MML Engo 9K winch, Dick Cepeck Radial F-C 33/12.5/15.

Novak shift cable for sure when doing bl/mml. The stock shift linkage nightmare is nothing but problems and makes all kinds of noise when not aligned perfectly. Also (speaking from personal experience) the transfer case gets kicked out of 4Low all the time with a bl/mml combo and stock linkage. Which really sucks when you are climbing some hill and the transfer case gets kicked into neutral then you are left scrambling (while stuck on a hill) to get it back into 4low.

1.25" bl w 1" mml is perfect match. No messing with fan shroud, fan etc. I used M.O.R.E. bombproof 1" mml and zone 1.25" bl
Another added benefit of the M.O.R.E. bombproof mml is it really smoothed out engine vibrations

At least 1" bl required for all kinds of neat upgrades like tummy tucks, gas tank skids, etc.

Do it!!!

A 1" BL is not necessarily required to do a TT. I have a UCF ultra high clearance skid and lowpro trans mount. My tcase clears the tub by a good 1.25". I did have the stock trans mount installed with 3/8" clearance but the drive shaft angle was to severe. One thing you don't read much about, if installing a TT with 4" SL, I would recommend an SS SYE. The extra DS length helps a lot with the extreme angle. I may do a 1" MML to further help the angle. At a glance it looks like I can do that without a BL. That being said, the Savvy gas tank skid does look good with an extra inch of departure angle which requires the BL. :P''

This is a great point.
And you don't necessarily need a MML to do a tummy tuck either.
I have a 1.25" JKS BL and the Nth/AEV tummy tuck.
Rubi so no SYE kit needed and no real lift to speak of so no need for longer rear driveshaft.
I do have adjustable rear control arms and have corrected the pinion angle which I'd recommend to keep from burning through u-joints.

Bad pic, but you can see the profile of the tt etc
