Hi all I'm thinking about changing top stage of my MK-V for a PRO Donkey box 3/2/1 Is it possible or do u need the upper electronics for it to fit? The post has the 4 screws holes that I think are the same.

I have the MKV with DB2 setup.  Works well.  I have my jbox tied into the preston mount in front of the stage.  This brings the jbox closer to the post.  Which makes it nearly impossible for a couple of my larger lemo connectors to go in the jbox post side.  Have an adapter made to get it out a little further or get some 90 degree cables if you need.

It should be fine. You just need an adaptor made for two 15mm bars to come out the front, a C-Spacer for your top of of your post and let the centre cable out and some longer screws. I am sure Ash at MK-V would be more than happy to help.
