Nope. All straight forward. Due to the passenger side lean, you'll find that the passenger side link probably needs to be slightly shorter. This is normal. You want the links to be able to slide on and off....no forcing should be needed.

BL = super easy.
Discos = easy, but you need a drill and tap (forgot size).
MML = sucks bad, get a friend, get a floor jack, don't be a puss when jacking up the engine, have at least 12 beers on hand.

The MML was almost as easy as the BL just follow the Rokmen video and you will be fine, I did by myself with no problems. Other than I did cut my hand when I tried to get my gorilla hands up to grab the motor mount, I now have a permanent scare, the jeep was just trying to tell me that I am hers I guess.

Body lift = Easy
MML = Easy (make sure you only do one side at a time.)

All of the above plus.......

MML: I could not get the long bolt to slide out on the driver's side due to the AC pump. I unbolted the whole mount from the motor, then it was a piece of cake.
JKS instructions say that you do not have to use the included TC shifter bracket if you install both the BL and MML. With my Jeep, I needed it. Even after adjusting the slide thingy, it would still pop out of 4lo when off road. Others have not had this problem. Must be an individual Jeep thing.

Advice, the MML install blows.

Prepare for a long weekend with lots of bloody knuckles and lots of frustration.

Oh, and dont do it in the rain. That doesnt help the situation

Same for my jeep. Stupid jeeps all have to be different from each other! To the OP, body lift is super easy to do, mml a little difficult but not too bad, and i've never done disconnects but they're on my to do list! This poor high school student needs a job again... once my hand heals up
