I am planning on cutting the top through the center. My thought on this has to do with using original glass for the windshield and door glass. My only regret at this point is like new interiors pointed out about the rear window glass. When i first measured everything out, i was hoping to keep the original glass size, so i figured moving it down would look good, but after relooking i may have to see if i can move the glass up without to much damage to the back of the cab. Mathematically, i missed that one. I think i may still be alright if i leave it in the low position, but i do see how it put's the look of the cab out of alignment. Thanks too for all the great pictures, some of them will help me allot in realigning the cab.
