|Kmehr||I think I would just cut the tunnel if it were me. I think it would cut down on the total number of things you have to change, and you could make a nice removable panel to make servicing things easier in the future.|

You can do it through a body lift. But then things like the clutch hydraulics will become too short. So go just enough and no more. In the case of my crew, I have a 1" lift and still had some tunnel to cut. The 1990 had no body lift and had a fair bit of tunnel cut.
Hope that helps!

If your crewcab build is happening on any non-crewcab frame... anything you add in the way of a body lift will reduce the amount you need to cut/channel the rear cab floor.
I plan to do 1-2" body lift just for improving working clearances under the truck. Cummins powertrain makes everything a tight fit. A flatbed doesn't care about body lines matching up.

|jr90||I have read that thread a couple of times and he did some modifications to the tunnel which is why I was wondering if the small body lift would eliminate the need for that. I found another thread and they only mention cutting the shifter hole so it may work. Mainly just wanted opinions on if the body lift would be a good solution or not.|

Either this thread or one of his others details an NV5600 swap extremely well. You are on your own for finding it.

|jr90||I have searched but may not be using the right terms. All I can find are "will it work" haven't been able to find many completions.|

|thrashingcows||Have you searched the archives?? There is plenty of info out there, on this site and many of the other 1st gen forums, or just a google search away. Grab some snacks, and your favorite beverage and sit down for a few hours of reading.|

I'm planning to start my crew cab build pretty soon, going to run an nv5600 4wd and wanted some input on fitment. I would like to do minimal modifications to the tunnel and am wondering if I could make a custom 1 -2 inch body lift instead. Want to go with as little lift as possible to get the clearance needed.
