Built this one about a year ago...I had the parts left from the LA Recovery truck after I snagged the tow body for another build, So I decided to see what a day cab would look like...This is what I came up with... :) The truck is 99% done...Just need some air hoses and some chains, and some mud flaps, etc, etc......

Very nice build, what did you use for the back wall of the cab ? or was it in the kit already ?

Nothing special...Just added a piece of glass to the hole that was already there, trimmed away any unwanted plastic, and slapped a piece over the back, and "Boom"...Instant little window....The headache rack would conceal everything, anyway, so....
