Do I have to do a MML with Daystar 1" Body lift?

Is it necessary to do a MML with just a 1" body lift? If so, which one should I get to go with the above?
Thanks

No you do not have to . I did a 1" MML and Bl on my YJ and TJ just so I could do a Belly up skid plate

You don't have to but I would recommend it. If your currently mounts are in good shape (which they should be on a 2006) then just go with a JKS MML. If they are not in good shape, replace them with some Brown Dogs. I replaced mine with Brown Dogs and it was super easy.

If you have the time and money i would recommend doing a mml, it will help a ton if you ever decide to further mod your jeep.

You dont HAVE to, but it will make your life easier. you wont have to mess with transfer case linkage, or your radiator fan shroud. plus a MML will slightly improve your driveline angles and slightly help out with any vibes you may have. do you run any other lift?

I installed a 1" BL on my LJ and the only thing I did was move the fan shroud...didn't even have to mess with the tc linkage. MML is nice, but not necessary for the BL.

I'm just running a 2" Skyjacker BB. Currently on 31X10.5 MTR with stock 15" Ravines. Going to be going to 33X12.5s so I was looking for a little more clearance.

I know this thread is old but I just ordered this exact set up for my '06 LJ.

2" skyjacker and 1" bl so i can fit 33's.

Did you have any issues? My buddy is trying to convince me that i need a mml and that i will have problems slipping out of 2nd gear and rev.

Thanks

the slipping would be caused by the shift lever against the floor console. i have the 1" Daystar BL, the JKS MML, and AEV TT - mine popped out of 1st from a stop twice and i could see my console also move when shifting into 3rd and 5th. after a few days of driving, i just pulled the shift boot and looked at the ring that held it in. where there was contact, i saw indentations - i just trimmed it out a little at a time until it didn't rub. without an MML or TT, you can unbolt the shifter shaft and put a slight bend in the shaft.

No, a MML is absolutely not necessary simply because you have installed a body lift.

I dunno why some always insist on pushing a MML for a body lift. #1 a MML is overkill, not inexpensive, and not such an easy thing to install. #2 a MML can alter drivetrain angles in a direction that is not always a good thing. The only thing I'd recommend is simply lowering the fan shroud down an inch to compensate for the radiator, which is mounted to the body, now being 1" higher than is optimal for the engine fan.

When you have a choice, buy American.
