    Just curious if there are any negative reprocussions to running a NP205 clocked up a bolt notch or two on the adapter. I know the front driveline angles will be affected and I'll need to modify the shifter, but is there anything else I'm missing?

    Thanks for any input.

    Mine is clocked on the end of my Doubler. The 2 thing to look out for are interference with the body and filling the case with oil.
    I used a 1" body lift to move the body away but a few whacks with a BFH will worrk too.
    You have to nosedown the truck and overfill the case a bit. I forget exactly which part this is done for but if you call ans ask James or Stephen at ORD they can tell you.

    You mean clock it on the tranny side? Dealing with the angle on the crossmember might be interesting.

    Actually yes thats what I meant. I was more or less just thinking w/o thinking. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I have yet to even take a look at it myself to see what the options are, or if it is even feasible.
