    Hey dude, I was only kidding! /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Anyway, I dont think I have ever checked out your rig, but after viewing your site - im very impressed. Well Built. I currently run 38s which is probably the max tire size for my 1/2 ton drivetrain - but after going 1 ton I would like to run 40-42 inch tires. Seems you have good tire clearance with 42's and 6" lift and 2" body. I am going with the 2" body lift (currently have 6" suspension lift too) to clear my Dual Case setup from WMS. I had them clock the NP203 upside down so there will be major tranny tunnel clearance problems. I also had them clock the NP205 up to flat. I am curious as to how the NP205 will fit between the frame rails. I have dual 2.5" exhaust running in the frame and wonder if this will clear. Keep us posted on install pics. What will you do about shifters? Going twinstick on the NP205?

    The 205 will fit between the frame rails with no prob. Depending on how your dual pipes run, you may have to modify them though...maybe only on one side. But you'll definately need to modify the your tunnel since you're going for the flat belly.
    I have a 1" body lift and only have .75" of clearance from the 205 and the floorboard. (my 205 is clocked up 2" as well). I left the 203 normal and did not go for the flat.

    This pic here kinda shows how far mine is sticking down below the frame.

    Pic is taken at an angle so it looks like a lot is hanging down below, then there really is, if you know what I mean.

    Anyhow, I'm still in the middle of doing this (working on my custom rear springs now)...so I have not driven with this yet.

    THE 205 WILL FIT FINE BEWTEEM THE FRAME RAILS. I THINK MY EXH. IS UP AND OUT OF THE WAY ENOUGH. THE SHIFTER WILL BE A TRIPLE STICK SET UP. THAT GIVES MORE SHIFTING OPTIONS. GUYS I WILL BE POSTING MORE PICS THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
