Thanks. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to install my Lund visor. What do you think? As with most projects this one will never be 100% done, there's always some tweaking to be done.

did that cab bolt on pretty easy?
i have been thinking of converting my truck to a crew cab short box but was wondering how easy the body mounts would be on the cab.

I ended up doing a 2" body lift at the same time because the rear mount bushing is really thick and I'm a cheapass so I didn't want to buy new shorter ones. I welded a piece of 5" channel with most of one edge cut off (to clear the body) on top of the frame. I had to dent the front tank a bit for the end of the bolt and nut to clear. The front mounts bolt up normally.

Here's a couple pics, I hope they help. I think if you were motivated enough and took your time you could get away without the body lift, or you could easily reduce it to only an inch or so of body lift. The swap wasn't really that difficult, the crappiest part was swapping the dash wiring, pedal assy and steering column (donor was a gas auto, mine's a PS 5 speed) EDIT: Did all the pictures in this thread stop working for you too?
