you will probably be fine with the t case drop.
the MML is normally what is used with body lifts to keep the fan lined up with the fan shroud. it can be used in place of a t case drop, but you will need a body lift or have to modify your fan shroud if you get a motor mount lift and dont have a bl.

now every jeep is different, so even with a t case drop or a MML, you may still have vibes and need a SYE.
you could awlays just take the 3/4 inch spacers off the rear. this would give you a more level stance, and make the drive line angle in the rear a bit better if you do experience vibes with the t case drop.

I would research what lift you want, do it right the first time.... the RC kit has a bad rap.
Check out Teraflex, OME or Rubicon Express

As stated no need for MML unless your doing the BL... and since you'll have a t-case drop, it's pointless.

Now if you did that lift and wanted a 1" BL then a MML would help.

thanks guys. good info. im torn between 32's and 33's. i like the look of both but hate to spend good money and then end up wishing i went bigger. ive tried to read up on this topic and i cant believe how many diff setups there are. snwchris, this is the 1st time ive heard that rc had bad rap. a guy locally told me a 3" bds lift w transfer drop would be all i need to fit 33 x 12.5 15 w 4" bs with no issues pertaining to rubbing, vibe, regearing, etc. so if thats the case it might be the route to take for me. thanks to any and all for input

Well, that's not all true. Re-gearing pertains to the power loss of larger tires. The lift clears you from rubbing, given the right backspacing on your wheels. Read the lift thread, I've also heard negative from the RC set-up. There's alot to consider when modifying But boy is it fun and expensive

X2 on that. There's a ton of info on this forum about various lift options and what combos work better than others. Check it out before you buy.
