    I just installed a WMS doubler in a 1978 Chevy Truck. It seems that the tail portion of the 205 is hitting the tub and I have had to reinstall the 3" body lift for clearance. This is not clocked, both tcases are in their stock locations. The vehicle has a bench seat and I may scrap it and go with buckets so I can modify the trans tunnel but I am wondering if anyone else has this problem?

    FYI...the wms doubler is very nice as is the Northwest Fab shifters. Quality products.

    Not clocked with a 3" bodly lift and its still hitting doesn't sound right.

    But I would modify the tunnel as you probably are doing right now.

    I will be cutting and clocking mine so I can flat belly this beast as much as possible.

    Here's mine, just cut a huge hole in the floor and it will fit. I have no body lift, hate body lifts.

    It looks like my doubler adapter is hitting right behind the cut out for the shifters so I will hack the tub before I put in a BL. Thanks for the pics.
