I purchased one but didn't install it.... Jeep forum claimed that a 1" body lift and 1" MML were absolutely required. Jackasses.... My motor still has a very healthy lean to the rear.

Things that happened due to no MML

1. fan contacts fan shroud and doesn't spin (I cut the bottom of the shroud off Works great!)
2. T Case yoke is REALLY high and results in a terrible angle at the DC. (I have no vibes)
3. You cut your tub clearance work in half/dont need body lift. The trans is VERY close to the tub (.75") so if you do a MML you need a body lift or a new tunnel. If you have more than a 2.5" lift without stretch I doubt you could make it work.

The fan shroud could have been moved down by simply making new holes, but that wouldnt be any fun.

I have no drive line vibes.

So all is well without an mml, just be prepared to modify more stuff.
