Moving Front Cab Body Mount

I put 44's on my '79 F250 and the tires contact the front cab body mount. Has anyone moved this body mount? Where did you move it? Any pictures? Thanks for any advice!

Easiest to accomplish by lifting the truck. Low COG's are nice, but sometimes som amount of lift is necessary.
If you are serious about moving the mount, consider moving the entire cab. This will provide a far better approach angle, and will create the much needed clearance.
You will also create a much better breakover angle, since the transfer case will artificially be closer to the front compared to the cab.

moose4x4 is starting off with a positive reputation.
If you can find an F600 or so look at the front cab mounts on them. Email me and I will try to get a picture of the front of our F600 cab mount we made. Not sure how to put a picture on the reply yet. Bruce

Update:
Took me a while to get around to doing this because of several unfortunate injuries but we finally ended up moving the front cab mount back 1 inch and up to meet the cab. We took out the 3 inch body lift puck and used the stock spacer. Excuse the paint job...
