For what? Most tuff wheels will bolt directly to an E body crush can.

I like to find a tuff wheel " crush can". I have the wheel.  If I use the regular crush can the wheel will be way too close.  I always felt the regular wheels and crush can, the wheel is still to close to the driver. I was thinking of cutting down a crush can to bring the wheel further away, and maybe using a b body directional rod which is straighter(less angle). I know the set up with the tuff wheel and the shorted crush can will bring it at more or less the same distance.

Ok so what you are looking for is something to put the steering wheel closer to the dash? There is only one crush can for an E body and while you can cut it and shorten it, you can only go so much because the wheel will be too close to the dash. You might think about moving the seat instead.

I could move the seat back then I'll need to put blocks on the pedal.   My massive height of 5'6" don't help much

So you are actually trying to get father forward? I think cutting and shortening the crush can is your answer.
