Motor Mount Lifts?

I'm still relatively new to Jeep ownership and I'm going to lift my stock height 97 TJ. Could somebody please help me understand what exactly it is that motor mount lifts do for your Jeep and will I need one if I'm going to lift mine 4"?
Thanks

Motor mount lifts (MML) do any of two things:
  1. Correct driveline angles when lifted and not using a SYE. Tilting the motor up points the output shaft of the transfer case down lessening the angle between it and the driveshaft.
  2. Used along with a body lift (BL) to create room for tummy tucking the transfer case up into the body to gain more clearance of the stock skid.
Side effects of the MML is eliminating the need for relocating the fan shroud when doing a BL. If you do either a BL or a MML I'd recommend just doing both because of this.
