Hey, easy fix. Just take a dremel tool and cut out around the area where it hits. if dont have a dremel tool just sawzall or snip it off with tin snips. What is your truck cause i want to do the same to mine, the body lift i mean. and the fan being cut out wont be enough to make the truck run hot.

Well, sorry to hear that it is not going better for ya, but lets see if i can help. You can drill out the screw with a tap/die set and just get another bolt. (make it a grade 8 this time). The kit should have came with the shifter extender, but if not just get a peice of threaded rod, try to borrow a welder from a rental place. Around here they have those sort of things.If not then some of the muffler shops and such will come and weld stuff at your home. Also a farm immplement store will do the same. again depending on where you live. Oh yeah did you get the fan shroud problem fixed and how did you do it. Do you have pics and if so post them. And where do you live. I live in N.Illinois

I live in illinois too. Alsip illinois to be exact. The fan shroud is almost done but i'm debating on weather or not to just trim the bottom of the shroud or to just cut it off.
the linkage is another problem. It is about a half an inch too short. but i will keep you posted. Thanks again for all your help. if you have any other pointers i would be happy to hear them.

Well i dont know about takin the whole shoud off because it can be protection from the fan when working on the truck and it does help keep it cool , if you take it off you may loose alot of coolin affect and over heat more often. Where is alsip i'm in Rockford.

127 and cicero to be exact. Right by the highway. i havent done much wheelin in my truck but i know a good amount about trucks and how to offroad. Rockford isnt to far any good places to do some wheelin out there. Nay ways back to the truck. I think i'm going to take the linkage out an bring it to the muffler shop across the street, hopefully they wont have a problem with welding in my extender that came with the kit. about the shroud i didnt wnt to take it completley off but cut out the bottom with tin snipps where the fan is hitting. Let me know what you think.

Hey sound good to me, themuffler shop should do it for free, What town is it? the tin snip will work fine, and if you want you can sand around there and get good straight cuts so that it look original.Nowhere to wheel around here except for some farmers fields and such. Hey if your not to far we are gettin some guys together for a meet this spring, see my post Daks in N. ill, to read up on it.
