need some help please??? BL/MML/TC???

So i just installed my JKS BL, and going to install a M.O.R.E 1"MML tomorrow. My jeep currently has a 4" Sus. lift, however i bought the jeep with it, have no clue what brand it is, and/or wheather it came with a transfer case drop. So my ? is do all 4" sus. lifts come with a TC drop kit?
Is it possible to get some pics of a TC without the spacers so i can see if mine looks different?

The next ? is with my 4" sus lift, 1.25BL and 1" MML should i even need the TC drop if its there? Hopefully all this makes sense.. pics would be awesome

here are some pics of how mine looks currently im guessing that it is dropped, but not 110% sure, does it need to stay this way, pro's / con's etc.... thanks in advance

With 4.5" lift and a 1" MML I didn´t ned a TC drop. But every Jeep is different.

I would remove the ugly TC drop and if there are no vibes the it´s ok. Otherwise install a small TJ drop with some washers until the vibes are gone.

vibes

the hard part for me is, knowing what is causing what. I have some vibes now around the 50-60 mph area, even with the huge TC drop, but not sure if its my pro comp M/T's causing it or what.. is there a for sure way to tell vibes and no vibes from the drive shaft, transfer case drop?

the driveshaft would make a low growling noise.

do you mean that your steering wheel shakes a bit at 50-60 mph?

shake

I do have alittle movement in the steering wheel, but not an ungodly amount, what i have is like movement, or vibes coming from under my seat, rear of the jeep area, like either tire Vib or drive shaft vibe.. what i plan to do is put the MML in and drive it.. then i will cut the spacers in half with washers and drive it and see what kind of difference i get, i would think i should be able to atleast cut the TCD in half??? It would almost seem as if i shouldnt need it all?? I will also take pics of my drive line angle tomorrow or after the MML is installed and see what others say...

Sye

it does not have a SYE on it as of yet, but thats on the list to do, just not at the moment, i really dont see why i should need one as i only have a 4" lift, but i still plan to do it, just building up the balls to tear into the transfer case

With the SYE I would install a belly-up skid at the same time for more ground clearance.

I understand you have a TC drop on it but most people will say anything over 3" SL should have a SYE in it. Now with this MML it should lower the drive shaft angle. Put the MML on it and see if the vibes go away.
