Well after the carnage of the last comp I decided I needed a flat bottom. I called BudBuilt and he shipped me out this beauty:
The install is pretty straight forward.
You will need to drill out the threading on holes 1-3. You will also need to remove the hole pin below hole 4 and above hole 8.
It came with all the hardware including a new seal for the transmission. Install this with the metal side facing the front of the transmission.
Here is where the new seal goes.
It did create a problem in the cab that I had to cut out a lot.
Here is where the tcase shifter ends up.
Here is what it looks like now, with 37 tires, running chevy 63 in the rear and 44044s with two leafs removed it sits at 28 from the bottom of the tcase to the floor. I can not find where I wrote down what the distance was before. The steel across the bottom of the picture is where the bottom of the frame rails are located.
I am saving now for a set of PRP seats to install.
Here is the truck as it sits now. While doing this I also shortened the wheel base by about a foot while replacing the rear most part of the frame that was bent. The passenger side frame was about 3 higher than the driver side.
For more random pics of the work you can go here:
The install went very smoothly, I still need to cut the hole for the tcase shifters, bend the shifter and finish welding up the tcase/crossmember.
