Damn...been waiting so long to be at this point I can't believe they are actually in myself. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> Thanks to Tusker for holding the backboard, or else they wouldnt be in! Ok, so here are some pics.

This is the whole shooting match from the side...

A little closer from the rear...

I used the stock toy rubber mount in the rear, inside a 4X2 0.25 channel, I used angle to hang it from the frame, everything is flush or higher than the bottom of the frame...

Whats next?? Now that this is in its time to cut out a bunch of the tunnel to get it to fit. Sort of ironic since I just finished repairing all of the rust holes in the tub...fix the tub <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ...then whack the tub <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> oh well, I'm getting good at welding zuk sheetmetal. I've done lots of measuring and the tunnel chop will be significant, but not too severe.

Just curious where that rear shifter ends up being in relation to the driver's seat. Is it right at the parking brake opening? Behind it?

The rear shifter will come out about 2-3 inches in front of the end of the e-brake handle. However I think the the tunnel will have to be modified all the way to the rear of the e-brake handle for the increased height. I'll know for sure by sawzall-Sunday.

I can almost hear the sound of the ignition key turning. Now will come the time when scwafish will have restless nights. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

How much further over does the Toy case output shaft sit vs's the zuk? I put D44's in mine and with the GRS1 the out put shaft sits about 2" towards the passenger side vs's the yoke on the rearend.....If I was close to that on the other side, i could move up to toy stuff!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">

How much further back does it sit vs's the stock case? ....Do i get an even shorter rear dline?? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">
