Get the MML with the BL. That will save you some work and also may save your from having to drop your xfercase.

so who's installing the lift?

Almost ordered the MML when i got the BL, but wasn't sure if i needed it. Me and a friend will be installing it. Also got a mechanic friend on stand-by if needed.

Hey man!! I am sure that will be fine! But I just want to correct you on something, the rear axle on your jeep is actualy a dana 44! Check it, if it has a rubber drain plug (or is oval then it is a D35), but if it has a metal draain plug then it is a d44.

Might save you some trouble in the long run!!

I wish it was a D44. But unfortunatly its not. Rubber train plug. a lot of people have the misconception that the sahara's all have d44.
