1.25" BL, 1" MML and had to lose the Tcase drop. DS ok?
 
Installed my 1.25" BL today with no problems along with my 1" Brown Dog MML. Really adds to the look of the Jeep. Ran into a problem. The transmission sits too low now so I can't get it into 2nd, 4th, or reverse Though. Gonna have to take the tcase drop out, I wasn't able to shift into 2nd, 4th, or reverse. Think my drive line angles will be ok? I have no DC shaft.
Edit: Took the drop out. Just took it for a test drive, only got it up to 30, and only felt a little more vibrations than I am used to.
Here are a couple picks.

Well I'm no expert and don't really follow why you would of lifted the motor and left the tcase drop bracket. If it were mine I would pull the tcase drop out and just try it.

Sorry I guess I didn't make that very clear. I already did, the pictures are of it tucked back up in there.
There fixed

You're drive shaft is looking good. Loosen the through bolts one full turn on each side and see if you get less vibrations.

Bulla 07-14-2013 10:28 AM

Do you have adjustable rear uppers? If so you could maybe try rolling the pinion down some. From the diagrams I've seen on a normal ds the two u joints should be at the same degree. Where as a DC drive shaft should be pointed directly at the DC joint itself. If someone has the picture that references this it would help out.
This is just based off of what I see in the pic. Hit other than that it doesn't appear to be at too much of an angle.

Loosened the through bolts just a tad and that did help out. Got it up to 65 and felt just fine. Really like the motor mounts btw. I think I should be good now. Thanks for the help.

If you come clean it for me, I like to rock crawl instead of mudding. Mud destroys bearings, kills electrical components, gets into your frame and helps with the rust process, and this Texas clay does not come off easy. I dont think this jeep was ever ran through mud before I got it and I would like to keep it that way.

OT: here is the new mount in

I used to spend $18 at the car wash years ago.Brown Dog mounts cause vibrations with the poly mounts.That's why I wondered why you didn't do a BMML.

Can you post some pictures of what the BL looks like from the back, front and sides? I may do a 1" BL , but not sure if I'll like the space. Thanks

These aren't the poly mounts they are the rubber ones. And now that I have them adjusted properly they have no more vibrations than the stock mounts. What BMML were you thinking?

bbradUSMC 07-14-2013 01:07 PM

Honestly the back is the only thing I dont like. Can't really tell from the side or the front but you can really see it in the rear.

All BMML blocks are the same.I like Brown Dogg IF your stock rubber mounts are bad.The problem is,most stock MM's last longer than the Jeep and the stock mounts rarely ever wear out.My 98' TJ had great MM stock rubber.
