need advice on suspension setup

i have a 98 TJ Sport. I installed at 2.25" (it actually measures 2.25") spacer lift, with RE Monotube shocks, 32x11.5 BFG TAs and 15x10" Soft 8 wheels...i had some driveline vibes right away so i dropped the transfer case by about 1/2" (4 washers).

i still get some vibes when accelerating in 1st and 2nd. I just bought a 1" body lift with 1" motor mount lift. Can I install the motor mount without the body lift? I really don't care about the body lift to be honest. My 32's fit fine and don't rub. I don't want to lift the engine to fix the drive line vibes, and then bind up something else.

thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, but you have to relocate your fan shroud.
