I picked these up cheap as a pair. Will the tcase fit between the rails with a 3 inch body lift? I'd like to not have to find a different tcase.

I'm asking about the tcase. I did use the search and it didn't pull anything up

yes it will fit between the frame rails. Body lift won’t effect where the drivetrain sits in relation to the frame.

It's going to be very tight if it fits at all. My 205 (which is much more compact) is a pretty close fit... I would measure from the center of the output shaft to the outer edge of the t-case, and apply that measurement to the space halfway between the frame rails and the inside of the driver's side frame.

Are you sure that’s a 1354? What did it come out of?
