    could make a kit to mount it custom. some just make a 4 bolt square frame and bolt to frame . then use small polly bushings to mount the tcase to some custom made plates then small polly bushings again to the square frame .

    did you search in the garage ? i think there is pics posted of others doing this.

    here ya go buddy. http://www.coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=183444&highlight=divorced+205

    i my self dont care for the dodge crossmember. i have one and its real flimsy i think. its got cracks all over it. i just need to toss it realy.

    YES:bow: YES:bow: YES:bow: SweetK30 told he about the frames being the same.:bow: You the man!:bow:
    But there is one still in the I.H. truck laying on it's side, at the junkyard. So if pics are needed or I gotta grab it for someone just let me know.

    you think the mount would work good as far as angles for a k5 with around 15 inches of suspension lift if so how much would you want to grab that mount

    I'll try to go at lunch tommorrow to get pics and price. But Sweetk30 might know off hand how good it would work. What trans? I would just be scared of having too short rear drive shaft on a K5

    Well went to the junkyard today to get the pics and the DM 205. It's gone. The IH was flipped back, so I looked under it, just empty space. At lease I scored two XJ shafts.

    I didn't find it, I bought it with a rebuilt 205, for $350 when i wanted to use it in my van conversion. (when I moved I put parts in all my vehicles to save trips and didn't remember to empty my corvair)
    I parted the van so now it's for sale.
    I was asking $300 for the 205 and the cross member.
    Do you already have a 205?
