I want to take off my Tcase drop soon, so would taking that off and putting on an SYE cut it alone or do I need a MML too? It looks like the PO might have put a lift on it but I can't tell how much, would measuring the Tcase drop spacers show me how much lift I have?

If you are using your stock skid plate no MML or BL is required with a SYE. If you want to do the belly up skid then the BL is required and the MML is highly recommended.

Thanks, and what is a BL?

For the vast majority of Jeepers who don't install bellyup skid plates, you don't need a MML once you install a SYE and CV driveshaft. A SYE and CV driveshaft eliminate the need for a t-case drop and/or MML.

Thanks, so do I need to pull the Tcase from the vehicle in order to remove the drop and install SYE? How hard is it to find the right driveshaft?

The drop is easily removed when the t-case skid plate is dropped. No need to remove the t-case to install a SYE. Many, me included, feel it's a faster and easier job if you leave it bolted to the transmission and just remove the rear half of its case to install the SYE. That's how I did mine and how I would do another.

I also did my SYE with the tcase still in the jeep. I had a hell of a time removing the lock rings. Go get yourself a good set if lock ring pliers. Not the snap ring pliers with the nipples but for the lock rings. It will make it way easier.

I left my MML in after the DS change to a CV type just to keep the DS angle less which helps the coil spring mount flatter which keeps the rear springs straighter .
