Got this out tonight. For those with lifted trucks and no vehicle lift, remove tires and put on jackstands as low as possible. I had to build a platform because the trans jack wasn’t tall enough.

Planning on removing engine tomorrow evening.
I was wondering what is the total length of that trans and t-case "if you can." Thanks

Only other thing I can think of is that "the mount plates position on the mounting pads need to be relocated lower that would bring them in closer to one another making up for the gap while lowering the Cummins some."

Make sure the Cummins is level right to left too..............
