    Okay, I realize this could be a dumb question, but from my mistakes I learn /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    Is it possible to move the tranny and transfer case up more for ground clearance, would the engine have to be moved up too? The only thing I could see that would be a bad thing is bad driveshaft angles. Lets here your input /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Maybe a skid plate, would help protect your vitals. I'm going to use a 1/4 inch aluminum. It's cheap and easy to work with, a jigsaw and a drill combined with a little thought and your set up. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    You will run into your floor within 1 inch unless you have a body lift. The motor will have to rise for 2 reasons.
    1. Front crank pulley/balancer will hit the crossmemeber
    2. It wont cool very will if tilted forward

    I think a skit plate would work better for belly protection.
