The units behind the cab are either, both Luberfiners or ones a luberfiner and the other a power steering reservoir.

You can do what ever you want!! It's your build. The battery box step was typically installed under the drivers side cab door. If a luberfiner was fitted it may well have been installed between the battery box and the cab extension skirt. If this is the case the battery box would have been mounted as far back as practically possible without fouling on the exhaust. There were of course other places to install the luberfiner. Have a good look through Hanks truck pictures and Tim's web site to get some ideas.
Hope this helps.
