    How will the shifter work with a 3 inch body lift? Still ok?

    i have a 2" body lift and its at its limits, by that i mean, i had to bend them a little to come up thru the stock hole, and i had to adjust it perfectly to get it to work without enlarging the hole, it just about hitting the edges front and back, witha 3" it would be worse, you could either enlarge the hole , or i thought about making a plate to mount the shifters a little higher so the pivot is closer to the bottom of the floor, the linkage should still work, Thats what i found, hope it works for you.

    Previous reply pretty much lined it out, you will probaly run into throw problems with a 3". An offset plate to raise the pivot up may be possible. The linkage should work out OK, we may need a bend in one of the rods where it drops under the 203 shifter pivot.
    We designed it around a 1" so we could cover stock to 2" lift, a 3" body is a bit outside of the parameters we used but not a problem that can't be overcome.
