wich style MML is better

did some quick searching of the world wide web and found that I can get a MML that completely replaces the originals but with poly bushings...but may create unnecessary vibes from motor.

Or I could use the motor mount spacers from JKS.

any thoughts.

JKS TJ / YJ 1" Budget Motor Mount Lift - JKS8100

Spacers from JKS work though my personal preference are the 1" taller rubber torsion "Bombproof" motor mounts from M.O.R.E. (Mountain Off Road Enterprises). Once you see and hold one of them, you understand why they're called Bombproof.

You're right to not want polyurethane mounts, they do transmit engine vibration into the passenger compartment far more readily. Before swapping in my MORE mounts because one of my previous motor mounts broke, I was running poly engine mounts and the added vibrations were definitely there.

Didn't help mine, but I have the JKS budget mml.

Why don't you add the body lift so you can run 35's also? That means you wont have to modify the fan shroud or anything.

well the whole reason Im doing the MML and not the SYE right now is because I really need to focus most of my $$ on replacing the transmission.

So you say that the JKS motor mount spacers didnt do anything, along with the TC drop?
I was thinking if I have to I could add a washer or 2 to the TC drop also.

It didnt help me out at all. That is the set-up that I used when you saw me at RC though.

do you think a regular MML would work better rather than the spacer?

It depends on your motor mounts. I have the same year as you with more miles, but still went with the JKS. A one inch lift is a one inch lift.

I would do it cause it does get your motor one inch away from rocks, but I did the BL at the same time so I didnt have to worry about the fan shroud or anything.

yea thats a good thought, it will complement the body lift when i get around to saving for those new tires.
Have you had any problems with your gearing vs tire size. You have 3.55 right?

Define problems. I can't use 5th gear anymore because of the lack of power, but I can still cruise in 4th gear at 70 at 2500 rpms.

Yea, I have 3.55s.

i mean problems as far as added stress on you drivetrain because of the gearing. Kind of sluggish too, no?

Braking will take longer, and I am pretty sure my alignment has a tendency to get out of spec easier. There is a better chance that you will bend a tie rod etc, but I havent noticed anything that bad. I have put about 13000 miles on them already cause of my 60 mile a day commute.

Come to think of it the steering makes some noise, like its under stress when turning in a parking lot and such. I think I am gonna go with AT's next time around for mpg's.

what is your mpg like?
I've been contemplating between 33 and 35.

35's , tubed fenders, and no body lift seems like a ideal setup for me.
But I also need to drive my jeep everyday so 33's might be morepractical
