    Agreed, your crossmember should be dropped down from the frame.

    Spacers = washers or similar here + and with longer bolts in the trans mount I think will do it.

    The exhaust will not work like that. It will need a bend put in that piece to clear driveline extension. Jack it up and see for yourself. Leave the front tires on the ground...


    That looks scary as hell from here. I thought 4 inch lift was all you could do without driveshaft mod..you simply MUST know how much spline in inside there. Spray paint that connection or mark it some way and disassemble it. Return with those pics. See how much has pulled out? There better be at least that much left in there.

    The bolts you are referring to are the 4 bolts holding the crossmember to the frame correct? As far as the transmission mount it doesn’t look broken to me.

    Yes mine originally had the spacers between the nut and the cross member and I moved the spacers to between the frame and cross member

    Correct, there should be a gap between the crossmember and frame.

    Alright guys am not sure if there is a spacer on the other side of the frame but if so I will swap them to between the frame and the crossmember. Also is 2” of extension on the front drive shaft ok ?

    If you mean there are 2 inches left in that shaft, past the line you marked, then yes, that should be fine. I knoe some people run lots less than that and I knew it was there, but you needed to think about it.
    I would be madder than hell if all you dudes kept posting in MY thread....maybe some kind-hearted MOD will clean this up for you.
