Jks 1" mml
 
Does the JKS 1" MML (the red block spacers) require a 1" BL like the bombproof motor mounts?

Yea they kindof go hand in hand, to help clear the fan shroud and fan since it will be at a different angle.

You can always raise and modify the fan shroud so the fan does not hit the shroud

Well I want to put on the MML because I don't want to drop the t-case. I don't have a BL but if the MML requires one I can put on a 1" BL, so in order to do a MML I need a BL correct?

Yea in the long run it's usually best... but you can try moving the shroud up as well to clear fan. You might have to modify the mounting locations

Alright thanks, I'll just put on a BL as well, can't hurt to have another inch of tire clearance right :)

I installed a Performance Accessories 1" BL in less than 45 minutes and I'd never installed one before that; so to say it's easy is an understatement. Then I installed the same MML you're using (JKS 1" blocks) and everything works out very well. No vibes at all and I'm running a 4+" suspension lift. :D

OME suspension kit, JKS 1.25" BL. and M.O.R.E 1" bombproof MML here and it worked out great. Made everything go together perfect! No messing with the fan shroud, no shifter brackets, or T-case drop.

+1 on do them both. Most guys would love an excuse to lift it just a little more anyway. A 1" body lift is cheap, effective, and simple to install.

Nope, just relocate the fan shroud by drilling new holes. Why spend more money if you don't need to.

Agreed. I just wallowed the fan shrowd holes out, maybe 1/2 inch. Just enough to clear the fan blades. 5 minute job at best.

you technacilly dont need a BL with a MML,if you do one or the other by themselves you will just have to adjust the fan shroud

Thanks guys, very helpful. I think I'm going to go with a 1"BL as well, it's pretty cheap and I can always use another inch of tire clearance. I know my options now so thank you.
