Default Manual Transmission + Body Lift = Issue

Hey guys,
I am planning to installing my PA Body lift on my 2003 Blazer here in the next week and am wondering what people have done in the past to account for the extra 2" in height in regards to the gear shift inside the truck. Any of your opinions will be very helpful.

Thank you,

As abig84 stated, you may have to clearance the hole through the floor even after extending the shift lever. The pivot point won't change which will make the throw at the top of the shift lever longer.

I had to clearance the floor for the NP203 shift lever in my '74 due to the body lift.
