I always just lifted the factory case into place, I broke down and bought a little trans jack from HF because I donít think I could get that heavy SOB into place....how did you install yours? Lol

Carefully with a floor jack and stacked wood to level it out. And ratchet straps. It was sketchy!

I bought a trans adapter for my floor jack after the first time struggling with it.

Update with no pics:

Got all 3 shifters mounted, coilovers, limit straps, and bumps all in. Gotta repair one bump. The threaded portion for the Delrin broke off from an impact.

I am currently cutting up the floor for the 205 doubler. How much room do you need in between the floor and top of the t case? Donít want to under do it and have movement impacting shifter use or hearing the case banging against the floor.

When I did my exhaust the first time after the SAS (from the collector back), it was around 1/4" from a heat shield bolt/stud. When I got bound up, I could feel it barely touching/vibrating against the tip of the bolt/stud. I ended up redoing the exhaust for the doubler and made sure to stay at least 1/2"-3/4" away from frame/body.

I imagine the exhaust coming off the collector moves around the same amount as a transfer case. As such, I'd leave at least 1/2", maybe 3/4" clearance just to be safe. Don't want to have to do the work twice! Since I shaved the 'foot' off my 205, it's inches away from the body - so the exhaust is still the closest thing.

I definitely have some more trimming to do. I am probably 1/4in from the body. I am curious if I can do some light trimming on top of the NP205 in addition to the body.

Hard to say if that highlighted area has a thin wall without opening up the case. My guess is that after the hole, the case void actually juts out into that area to keep the wall thickness from being too much (bad for casting) so you'll have to be careful with the trimming.

If you do get into the case, you'll have to plate it shut. Not a big deal, but you may need to empty the case to do so properly. Hopefully someone else can chime in if that can be clearanced.

No room to adjust the floor for more clearance?
