I'm planning on installing an H42 4 speed transmission and transfer case behind a 2f in my 1967 FJ45. I recently read a thread where someone did a similar swap into a 1966 FJ45 and had to add a 1" body lift for transmission tunnel clearance. Is a performing a body lift necessary for this conversion, or can something else be done to eliminate the need for a body lift?

I run a 4spd behind a 3FE in my 45lpb and we modified my tunnel. Would have been easier to lift the body up but I didn't want to do that. My tunnel's shifter area was a little screwy as I recall when I got the truck so we corrected that area too. Can't even tell once we coated the floor.
