Re: H8/question about your np435!
They ARE attached to the skid plate,simular mounting as the T5 ,some modification is necessary to the skidplate and torque arm,you either need to cut a piece out of your original skidplate or make another one,because they hang lower than the t5 .You also need an AA adapter or Novak which contains the mainshaft,adapter to a D300 T'case or what ever you run as a T'case around 400 to 500 dollars .also you will need a special pilot bushing and a clutch plate,and will need to drill and tap your bellhousing,I had mine Heliarc welded because the new holes were too close to the old ones which were stripped and helicoiled by a previous owner.They are one HELL of alot heavier than the T5 .As far as the degree of difficulty goes it pretty much depends on how many tranny swaps you have done before and fabrication experiance you may have ,or friends you can call some favors in on.
If you look at the Advanced Adapter or Novak site you will find out most of what you will need to know.Do not order the adapter from AA order it through No Excuses in New jersey for 20 % cheaper than AA they advertise in most 4X4 magazines and have a web site also.
