Hi all, I recently got a new (to me) 2002 sport, and plan on doing some modifications to it:

OME 2.5"lift
1" body lift
1"MM lift
Jeeperman/Poison Spyder (or something) rocker protection.
(among other things)

Two questions.

1. Does it matter the order in which I do things? For example, would installing the rocker guards make doing the body lift harder? I assume doing the MM lift and the body lift at the same time is a good idea?

2. Installing the MM lift may eliminate the need for me to do a transfer case drop correct? (Stress on may; I understand it will completely depend on my jeep, but in general it helps, right?)

Thanks!

Do the BL and MML together. The only way I see the rockers making a BL install more difficult is if the rockers tie into the body mounts. Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, doing the rockers first may actually be a better idea. You'll have an easier time jacking up the body with good solid rockers installed. Take a look at Rokmen.com.

Correct. It may eliminate the need for the t-case drop.

Wow, that list looks incredibly famliar Cool

The order I did those things were
1. BL/MML
2. PS rocker gaurds
3. OME Lift

The PS rocker gaurds do tie into the body mounts, but they simply slide in, you just have to loosen the body mount bolts.

I would definitely put the BL/MML before the lift kit, that way you can deal with one issue at a time and you shouldn't have to worry about driveline issues. I didn't have any problems and didn't have to lower the TC.
