|chitownjp||Cons Table, did you install the BL and MML yet? I'm planning on doing the same thing weekend, Daystar products though but still virtually the same install. I was also curious about the transfer case bracket and if it's needed. Looks like I'll just complete everything and see how it is. Putting the Banks exhaust on too, should be fun.|

|Cons_Table||Thanks for the input guys. It seems like a pretty straight forward project, I was just a little confused on those two parts concerning the linkage bracket and the fan shroud, but it looks like Ive got my answers now. I will let you all know how it goes|

Also neither the MML or the BL has to be used in conjunction with the other.
Just a BL.....you will have to relocate the fan shroud. Most common and better way is to drill holes and rebolt it higher on the radiator ""height drilled will depend on height of bl"
Just a MML...you will need to also relocate the fan shroud higher...and or clearance the shroud by making a cut out in the top of the shroud to accomidate the fan blades.

Install really is not hard at all bud. It you get stuck let us know.
1...install the MML first.
2. when installing the MML, depending on the year of your jeep/and if you have A/C. ....on the passager side motor mount you may need to remove the mount from the engine...""the mount bushing bolt hits the A/C and you cant get it out.""" much easier to just take the whole mount off of the engine block.
3...installing the BL...there are plenty of write ups on installing a JKS bl...read over them.
If you need a link to a write up let us know.

|tiny terror||No, a body lift is not required with a MML, you have to alter the fan shroud however. And no you do not have to remove the fan shroud if you're installing the BL and MML at the same time. Did it myself, didn't touch the shroud.|

|Indy||I guess you can try it. I had to install it even without TC drop. I have 3.25 suspension lift, 1.25 BL and 1 MML.|

BL is REQUIRED for MML though
|04-20-2010 06:48 PM|
|Cons_Table||From what Ive read I do not think it is a must. I think with it, you do not have to modify the fan shroud. Thats what I am looking for an answer to|

1. You will have to remove the fan shroud while you install BL first and then MML. You do not have to move it. It will go in the same place after you are done with BL and MML.
2. You will have to use that bracket because you are not lifting the TC. You are lifting the Body and Motor. Lifting the Motor does not lift the TC enough (it just tilts it little bit for better drive shaft angle) I installed 1.25 BL with 1 MLL and had to install that bracket.

|Sweat it||Do you need to do the MML if you do a BL?|

Body Lifts with Motor Mount Lifts
I just received my new BL and MML by JKS. I will be installing them this weekend but had a few questions concerning the two.
First, since I am installing both the BL and MML together, I probably will not have to move the fan shroud, at least this is my understanding. Is this correct?
Second, with the body lift it comes with a t-case linkage drop plate. Is it right that I will not have to use this since I will have the motor mount lift and no transfercase spacers?
Just trying to clear a few questions up so I dont get stuck having to do things twice. Thanks for any input guys. It is appreciated. Pics to come
