MML seating?

bolts then start the engine so the motor adjusts the mounts to seat them in the
right place now ive never heard of this but kind of makes since but not sure
about starting the motor with out it tight and secure with out damaging something

Don't know about others, but I left the tcase to skid mounting bolts loose after BL/BMML combo, drove it back and forth in drive, then snugged up. I tightened the BMML before starting. (both JKS)

2004 red Jeep...have about 1/2 of my 4" Standard Skyjacker left, with 33's and bits and pieces picked up here and there to fix what ails me...

I have helped install several MMLs and always leave slightly loose and start motor and put in gear to let the motor find its desired place of rest. While installing the MML it is possible to get the motor cocked slightly .

'04 Rubi, 4" RK LA, 1"BL, 1"MML, Warn 8274, Rokmen sliders, PSC flat fenders, PSC Krusher corners, lite dots, Currie AntiRock, etc.

The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
