heath done the conversion WITHOUT body lift.. its tight thats for sure.. but no evidence of rubbing other than the rubber intake on the bonnet matting.
its an 05 LLY with a 6 sp Allison converted to 5 sp to suit the motor( gm went 5 to 6 sp half way thru 05) as its an early 05 not a late one. ( this caused alot of headaches but was over comed) motor and trans were purchased separately.
the whole lot was shipped together.
