New to forum.

I am new to this forum, sure has a lot of good info. Just a quick question. I have a 97 7.3 5 Speed 4 in exhaust DIY intake and edge evolution. Does anybody have any problem with excessive heat in the cab of their truck? I use mine for pulling a 38' 5th wheel and it gets really hot in the cab, any info will be great.

Thank you! My cab seems to get really hot, especially in the floorboard area and around the stick shift. Just kinda curious..

Does your floorboard still have the factory insulation?

Yes as far as I know the floorboard still has the factory insulation. I have owned the truck for 4 years.
