Put a cab on your truck, hillbilly style!

Hehe, this was the best idea we had to get the damn thing off. it was fun and F*cking heavy, thats all i have to say. But we had a good time.

My friend couldnt wait for snow to get on his sled, so he road it around town





Here's the progress of the old cab to the new cab.

Only 4 bolts hold the cab on, minus the steering linkage, wiring...etc...etc...

once everything was unbolted and what not it took us less than 45 mins to put it back on.

I like how you guys hid the beer cans when the photos were taken!

True Hillbilly style would have included an old log and an axe somewhere in the installation.

J/K! Looks like it worked out well

Looks fine to me. Actually, I use my wife and 30 year old daughters in my lifting crew. Get a lot more interesting banter that way. Wife always ends up falling, getting scratched, mashed, or some other guaranteed conversation starter.

Looked like fun!
Is there a body lift on the bed? It looks like the cab sits lower than it.
