|jherrin215||I wish I would have thought of it, but I didn't think about that. I just took off the fan shroud and took loose the transfer case shifter bracket then jacked it up and tried to get everything lined up. The main thing that was the problem was the passenger side mount got hung in the bracket on the motor. That is why nothing would line up, but i think now that i got the through bolt into the mount everything is lined up good. Now i just have to get the bolt back into the back side.|

|Triple88a||yep loosen the 4 screws on the tranny skid to alow it to move forward since the engine will end up tugging the tranny forward a bit. I asked that in another thread but never saw any one answering it.. does any one have a blueprint of the motor mounts that they can share?|

|activelydying||well hell, that's not bad.|

And yes - just two mounts.
|04-08-2007 11:43 AM|
|activelydying||so it's just two mounts?|

|jherrin215||Yeah there are a couple of different companies that make one piece. I know blkjp runs MORE bombproof, and they are about 140 I think and 4wd hardware sells a one piece set for about 90 I think.|

If your OEM motor mounts are worn out or you don't mind a tad bit more vibrations, get one piece. If they are good and you want to keep the engine noise the same, get the spacers.
Of the three I have done, two were spacers and one was a whole mount. I would say that they are about the same install wise.

|activelydying||i always thought it was just spacers. they make a one piece kit also?|

|jherrin215||If you pieced it together go ahead and spend the extra money and get one piece MML's. I bought the spacers against the advice of some and I really regret it now.|

And the reason why a MML is preferred to a T-Case drop is that the drop sacrifices ground clearance. Just the thing you are trying to gain with the lift.

|activelydying||it seems like a lot of the higher end kits come with a mml, that's why i was wondering.|
|04-08-2007 11:31 AM|
|jherrin215||I think a MML is better but let me tell you it is a pain to install!! It's the worst thing I have tried so far!!|

mml vs transfer case drop
i have seen some lifts kits come with materials to drop the transfer case or some come with a mml. is one beter then the other. or if i skip the whole kit thing and buy everthing in pieces which would be the way to go.
