I did the cab swap on my truck. Put an '86 2wd cab on a '80 4x4 frame. I was told the hump wouldn't clear the transfer case, but I had lots of clearance with mine. Just be careful with registration. You're ok if the cab you're putting on is from a 4x4 and you have the registration with the new cab. I had to get a VI and an assigned VIN from ICBC since my cab was a 2wd, and the frame was a 4x4. Now it's registered as an '86 4x4.

I,ve done lots of cab swaps, it's not theat hard. Just make sure all your wireing is undone and out of the way before you lift the cab of. a case of beer and 4 or 5 budies should work.

they arent that hard but pain in the ass

sometimes the wiring are bit different.. have to worry about that a bit.. aligning the fenders/doors and shit like that isnt fun

hmm thats all
