We cut the bottom of our bellhousing off when this happened to us, but this was a pavement mod with 3.5" of ground clearance. I could go baja'ing with my dirt mod

Shim up your motor and trans mounts.

i'm running a mid plate and don't have a rear tranny mount. I'm not the only guy to have this problem in a GRT Mod.

Why not just use some blocks to roll over to raise the front of the car when the BH gets near the trailer? Or park the truck with the rear tires on blocks to lessen the breakover angle off the trailer.
