Have been running this for quite a while and have had zero problems with it. Pleanty of clearance for my 33's and flat fenders. No need for SYE. MML gives me no drive line vibs or anything.

Now don't take me not having vibes as gospel. There have been others who said the MML did not work for them and they either had to do the TC drop or both. Each Jeep is different.

You wont "NEED" and adjustable tracbar since the destructions say to drill a hole in the axle mount to relocate the OEM bar. I opted for a RE Adjustable one and welded a washer over the original mounting hole because I thought where the hole needs to be drilled would create another point of failure. The bolt for the new TB is smaller in diameter than OEM so by welding the washer there I was able to reuse the stock mounting hole.



Only difference between then and now is new tires (same Truxxs AT's) and now have an AntiRock on it.

I just put zone 4.25" lift on this week. Instructions were pretty straight forward but did take longer then expected, good thing I had a lot of time on my hands since my power was out and my school was closed because of sandy. So far I've taken a couple of test drives with it, it drives great on highways and back roads. I can't wait to test it offroading.

Nice! I'm debating wether to get the zone 4.25" combo lift or the zone 4" suspension lift. I know I will need a SYE to run the 4" suspension lift but I believe I can get away with a transfer case drop bracket until I get a SYE.

Just wondering because i have an 05 unlimited and i have had this same lift sitting in my garage for about 6 months now. I just installed new 31's (actually measure closer to 32) last week and i was considering just installing the SL without the BL for now until i wear out the 31's. I already bought the new 4:88 gear sets so I could throw the BL, gears and a set of 33's on once i wear down the 31's. I dont think it will look to out of proportion since my current tires measure closer to 32.

I just put the 4 inch zone on my 98 sahara and it rides pretty good for the price I guess. A little better than the old 2 inch spring lift that was on it when I bought it 2 weeks ago. I didnt want to get the 4.25 cuz I didnt want to mess with the body mounts.

Did you install a SYE? Or did you just run with the transfer case drop bracket? I'm interested in going that route too..

I had no trouble with the body lift. It was just lifting one side of the body and adding spacer then doing the other side.

i have a 4.25" combo lift and i did not need an sye. So far it has performed very well in my local trails. Especially at hollister hills, i went through almost all the obsticles from frame twister to stair climb.
see my build below on my signiture area for the exact details

The standard shocks. They work fine I didn't opt for the hydros...Might be going to a totally different shock all together.

No disco's either. Couldn't see spending the extra money for them when I was going to the Anti Rock. I did make my own discos though out of old hood pins. They worked fine for the 3 weeks I had them on. :whistling:
Passenger


Driver


I had lost the original bar bin for the driver side so I used what you see. Held fine and was like $8. Only thing I should have done with them was put one nut on the inside of the lower bracket and the other on the outside with a lock washer. That way when I did disconnect the mounting pin did not come out. :facepalm:
