Clocking the 300 and Flat skidplate

I just ordered my adapter today for the Ford T-18 and Dana 300 swap I'm doing on my CJ7. If I clock the 300, will I have to cut into the floor with a 1" body lift? I would also like to run a flat skidplate and get rid of the funky, hanging down stock one. What tranny mount can I use? I know this has been done, so any hints or tips (websites?) would be helpfull. Thanks!

Trying to keep my driveshafts out of the sun. ;o

See my Indexed Transfercase article at

http://www.tidesys.com

The tunnel clearnance issue will depend on your setup. I am swapping in a 4.3L V6 and my engine/trans combo moved forward a few inches, so I did have to cut a clearance hole in the floor, I have a 1" body lift. My new skidplate is flat.

Re: Clocking the 300 and Flat skidplate

Clocking and the skid plate are done, though everything is out on the garage floor as I continue working on the 4.3L swap. My second child was delivered 6 weeks ago, so garage time has been limited recently. I hope to have engine/trans/tc back in the jeep in a week or 2.

There are pictures of whats involved in clocking the TC on the website, and a believe a picture or 2 of the skid plate also. When I get things back in, I'll take another picture of everything installed and post it to the website.
