MML without a body lift?

I have a question - maybe someone has an answer - I have a OME lift - with spacers I got about 3" of lift. Have 11.50x32 BFG AT - Wondering if a MML would help or hurt drive line angle - I have not used a SYE or transfer case spacers - don't have any vibration problems, but I am wondering if I will have any clearance problems with front disconnects off - I might have to go with a 1" BBL also - any comments would be appreciated

The MML would help the drive line angles. If your having no vibes at all and no TC drop I would not bother doing it at this time. You open up a whole new set of problems (none are major) by putting it in now.
#1 You would have to relocate your fan shroud.
#2 You will have a good chance of needing to bend the shifter (if standard).
#3 your going to have to relocate the transfer case linkage.

If you find yourself doing the BL I would definitely do the MML then.

mml with no bl

Thank you all for your information - another question - will I notice more sway or unstability with a body lift on an 06 unlimited - I would not go more than 1" or 1.25" if I did anything - I am just not sure I would gain anything - I am not planning on going any larger than 11.50x32 that I have on there now - I am adding 4.10 gears since my original were 3.73 and adding a selectable locker in front to go with my factory limited slip in the rear - I am only adding 4.10 gears because I sometimes pull my tent trailer and notice when I go to the mountains, my jeep has a hard time in the steep climbs with the trailer attached - otherwise I have plenty of power and gas mileage is acceptable

if I did not pull my trailer - I think I would not do it - put I do notice quite a difference in pulling my trailer now vs when it was stock with 30" tires - Now I will be at what a stock rubicon is from the factory - Also - if I ever did decide to add 33" tires, I could still use the 4.10's - at least thats my logic - so far I have spent alot of money on things I should have researched harder - such as cold air induction, chip, new bumper that doesnt work with my new winch etc - but I guess thats what ebay is for - to sell my mistakes

^X2 If you wanna match a stock rubi with 32's you'd just have to jump all the way down to 4.56's. In that case I think you'd be better off usin the stock 3.73 ratio. If you dont really care about matchin a stock rubi than 4.10's would be pretty close since your tires are only 1" taller. But if you ever go to 33's your gonna want a 4.56 ratio. Just gota think ahead.

Gentlemen, I hate to say it, but you all have to look at the primary use of the vehicle. There are some good, well researched charts out there that will allow you to do some smart comparison. For a daily driver, 33's and 4.10s is the way to go. If you do more wheeling than daily driving, and don't care much about fuel economy, then go all the way to 4.56 or even 4.88 Bottom line is, what is the primary use of the vehicle, and do you care about fuel economy or torque. 4wheel parts has a great chart for figuring out your wheel size, gear ratios, and RPMs at 70mph. Check it out and then make your own decision.

^ x2 But I suppose I am goin to 35" tires and 4.56 gearing when I get a little further down the road. So I cant fully advise against 33's an 4.10 gears. Especially since I had a rig with 33's and a 3.55 ratio...it was pretty gross.

i wouldn't mind going to 4.10's from my 3.07's. but i wouldn't do it if i had 3.73's. too small of a jump.
