Body back off, pulling engine.
Want to modify the rear end .... Again!
Lift it another 1.5" and.... While I'm at it make some more clearance room for shifter coupling/rod.

New mounts for transmission.... No urethane stuff for me, just good OEM stuff.
Have u ever driven a high powered turbo diesel with solid mounts?
Not nice!

Decided, with a drop in the roof... The seats should also be chopped to accommodate the soon to be lack of headroom!

Removed 2" from stock 61' seats, changed the pivot , welded in a new base from square tubing then added a universal seat track.
