You don't need a MML to do a BL.

No MML required. Even if you did a 1" MML, you'd still need to drop the radiator shroud a little bit.

2 inch MML is pretty extreme and chances are if you are asking you don't need one.

Not trying to talk to you out of the MML... I'm about to install one myself. I'm just saying 2" is fairly rare... check out the FAQ on the brown dog website at

NEVER use a 2" MML on a Jeep.The 2" BL will come with the brackets to relocate the fan shroud and NO MML is needed for any BL.

Well, I have to ask...If you are doing a 2" BL, why wouldn't you do as much MML as you can get away with so that you can tuck everything up and run a flat skid?

I put electric fan in because the clown I bought it from just cut the shroud and put in a smaller fan. With that said. Do I need the mml? Does it help with function or reduce wear n tear? Thinking more for driveshaft tyranny etcetera.

You are lifting the body, the motor. trans. tc, axles do not move.

The only advantage you would gain with a mml is clearance under the oil pan and to a certain extent the tranny, and change the drive shaft angles.

But you are moving the radiator and shroud.

With more than 1" of motor lift your going to start having issues with the fan angled in the shroud which will poorly effect cooling abilities.
