Motor mount lift??

I have an 06 wrangler with 4" of suspension lift, I also have the transfer case lowered, this is causing awkward shifter placement, and it is really getting on my nerves, my question is if I installed this http://www.quadratec.com/products/16066_00.htm would this allow me to undo the t-case drop, and restore close to original drive angle, or am I gonna need to go ahead and do an SYE and replace drive shafts????? I know sye would be best, but I would like to save the money and regear. I know you guys will have lots of good answers, TIA

Well.... the motor mount lift did not completely fix my vibes (with a two inch BB). When I installed it, I forgot to take out the slight t-case drop I had. The vibes were completely gone, but I thought I had better take out the drop and when I did, the vibes were back.

I know it's not the same, your 4 inch is way more than my little 2 inch, but the point is all jeeps seem to be different. I'm sure someone else will know better, but this is my personal experience. And by the way..... the whole thing was maddening.

Lifting the motor doesn't give you enough of an angle alone for a 4" lift... it helps, but with the MML and the tcase drop you should be ok untill you drop the coin on an SYE and new rear driveshaft.

you will need a BL to make room for the MML, and it should help your vibes greatly, and you should only need one or two washers to eliminate them

Motor Mount Lift - spacers between the motor mount and fram to lift the engine up an inch for better drive line angles.

Thanks guys, I have done a little more research and decided that since I wasn't getting any bad vibrations ( it was just putting my shifter in a bind ) that I am going to wait and do an SYE, and new drive shaft, prolly around the same time I do an axle swap. Until then I am going to see if I can order a shifter arm from a 04 or older tj, and maybe tweak it a little bit so that I won't keep busting my knuckles on the dash.

"they" make a bracket to adjust for your shifter bind after a moderate lift. I personally don't know much about it, other than it's supposed to be very easy and inexpensive. I know one person that has done it and resolved everything. I've seen them in 4WD magazine.

I think that bracket is for the transfer case shifter.. Which shifter are you talking about? Transmission shifter (manual vs auto) or Tcase shifter (2wd/4wd)?

MML should help you so you will be able to remove some of the tcase skid drop

Yeah I went back and read that more closely and figured out it was for the t-case, just one of my many daily oversights, :chair: lol. But I am referring to the gear shift, everytime I shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th, I bust my knuckles on the dash if I am not careful.

Yup, that is the plan right now. Should be a really easy fix. Knock on wood.

maybe a short shifter might do the job too.

For sure. Get the B&M short throw or the Hurst shifter. There both a good option to fix that problem. They shorten shifter throw up to 30%.

I dont think B&M will fit your rig since you already have binding in the dash..
