How about just raising the cab the 1/2 inch you need?

The simplest approach in the long run may be to raise the hump in the cab. You lowered the crossmember which didn't give you enough - you can lower the motor mounts which may give you clearance on the floor, but interfere with steering. Raising the cab starts out easy, but will require you also raise the fenders, hood, grille shell. If it's just 1/2" and just a few small spots, that big hammer idea might be the winner. If not, you might be able to cut the hump and add a strip of sheetmetal to each side to raise it what you need.
