SD 6 Speed into a 97 OBS???

I have read that it hits the firewall somewhere, does anyone know exactly where it hits. I have heard a 1 inch body lift will solve the problem. Has anyone done the swap that could give me some pointers on what all needs done?? The trans is a 99 SD 6 speed and Transfer case.

i dont know about the firewall, i pondered the swap and was told that the trans. tunnel would have to be modded, different drivelines, yadda yadda. im sure some1 will point you in the right direction though.
