Need advice on motor mount lift and body lift

I have a different transmission/case combo than most. My NP208 hangs down and I've built a metal shield around it, but it sucks for clearance. I'm thinking about a 2" lifted motor mount and a 2" body lift. That should let me level things out a bit better. Any tips? Any thing to consider? BrownDog has the mounts for 1" or 2" motor lift. I personally don't like body lifts, but since I can't afford an Atlas, it's what I feel I must do. Please let me know, I'm ready to start ordering parts soon to get started if this is the path I need to go.

One of the thing i run into while doing my engine swap was t-case angle, advance adpater makes a clocking ring so you can change the angle of the t-case, ie: move it up and out of the way. cheap way to go, and work great. body lifts suck, only lift the body if you have too.
