    Does anyone know if this will work?

    I've got the "double hump" crossmember used on the later trucks with the "short" transfercase adapter, and the 205.

    I know I don't *really* need it, but I actually drug the old plate last year hunting, so I figure I'd rather have the plate dragging than the case. Comes off easier. :)

    Just not sure if that "V" design of the later plate will clear the 205. Not sure that one tons came with skid plates at that late of a date, but I haven't seen many K30's to know for sure.

    By the way, anyone happen to know how much, if any, clearance was lost when the crossmember went from being flat to "humped" '81+? My friend seems to think you lose a couple of inches, I guess my eyes aren't keen enough to notice that difference.
