Mine wasn't to big of a problem. I mounted mine high in the tunnel and just cut out and rebuilt the shifter and sides area's of the tunnel with 16gauge sheet metal. The motor has about 1.5" of room under the hood. The setup still hangs lower then stock but not enough to cause a problem. Length for me was the only thing I didn't like. With 105" wheelbase the front shaft is so freaking long. And Im only running one case for now. I still may switch to a carrier bearing two piece shaft but well see.
