if you want it to lay frame your going to need to cut and tub the firewall, notch for tierods, either cut your stock control arms or get tubed arms. if you cut your stock ones you need to piecut the uppers and dehump the lower. you going to have to remove inner fenders and everything that is on top of them. you going to have to get a smaller brake booster, move your wiring harness up about 2 inches, make a custom ac blower or remove your ac. you going to have to cut your fenders (the inside skin to clear tire) and i believe with stick you have to relocate your clutch resivor (sp?)

this is exaclty what im in the proccess of doing right now....

here is mine with a 255/35/20 on the frame

iv seen somone on here just fiberglass there blower box up for clearence will this work instead of doing a whole nother one

thats not too good of an idea...you could do it but you would have to make sure that if you hit a bump ridin low that it wouldnt hit it at all cause it would destory it...you would be better off makin a whole new one outa sheetmetal...it doesnt look too difficult but then again i've never built one but i plan on doing on soon.

^^^^

Then I highly doubt you're laying out. Anything over a 25" tire requires the firewall to be tubbed.
