A shop lift would be the ideal situation.

Another option would be to build a gantry. If I had a spot to keep one I would build one. Would make lifting and moving axles, cabs, motors, ect so much easier.

If everything goes as I think it will the combo of those motor mounts and a remote oil filter kit will allow me to gain some much needed upper link clearance. and maybe even lower the truck down some.

I also started cutting my body mounts out today. I decided to give myself a .5" "body lift", It will give me a little clearance around the trans/tcase since I raised them up so much.

I think Im going to do between 4-6" of up travel. I have to see exactly how much room I gain and how tall the truck is.
