i got a an 1980 cj5 and was wondering if there is anyone who makes flat belly plates for the cj or do i just have to make my own.

i know that i have to clock the dana 300 flat and run a new cv shaft in the rear and prob lengthen the front. also what shifters for the dana 300 when doing the flat belly i would like to run twin stick.

thanks for any help pics would be cool to

problems to be aware of/look for... The t-case will probly hit the floorpan without mods to floor or body lift. If said Jeep has more than a couple inches of lift, its gonna be tough to get any rear drivline to live in it, unless the rear axle has been moved back quite a bit.

I think I read the question correctly...

Clocking the 300 will not change the rear driveshaft angle at all.:shaking:

Agreed, and you can clock it 90* straight up and you still wont have a flat belly pan unless you raise it, or do you just lower the skidplate to the level of the trans mount?

I read the question to mean he wanted to have the skidplate flat with teh frame rails, tho that was not actually stated.

i know clocking it doesnt change the angle but if i raise it it does.

my questions are

1. would a regular bolt on twin stick setup work when it is clocked flat.
will the extreme angle of the shifters get in the way of the tranny or can i just bend the shifters up and do some floor pan trimming

2. is there someone that makes a flat skid plate for a cj (i dont have the shop or tools to do fab work to make one easily)

3. does anyone have any pictures of there setup

hopefully this is clearer and thanks for the help in advance
