    Anyone know who makes one? Everywhere I look says 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton except for ORD but their kit is only for 1 in. Anyone with an actual 1 ton used one of the 1/2-3/4 ton body lifts? Any insight would be appreciated as I need the clearance to fit the 44's I just got. :p: Thanks

    I found some 3" bodylift spacers at the boneyard. I cut them down to 2" and put them in my 1-ton. ;)

    I had to notch the floor maybe 1/2" for the 205 shifter.

    The only real problem was the rad shroud. I ended up removing it, and as a result, it would overheat when crawling around on uphill stretches. I suspect this would be a problem for diesels.... I'm sure losing the shroud (on that monster radiator) would impact the cooling much more than on a gasser.
