you still might need to mess with the radiator support so that all your front end parts like fenders and grill and headlights will work with the other cab because they are diffrent body-wise from the firewall forward

Turns out a 83'-92 will not all work. I checked on a 86' and it was not even close! The guy helping me has decided to pound out the cab and do some welding on the existing box. I'll post pics when done, it already looks pretty good!

How was it not even close? From my understanding, the cabs are all identical up until 93.

89-92' might work but I KNOW an 86' will not. all the measurements were WAY off and almost everything was different sizes. And yes i think at 92' would work! The cab actually pounded out really good, just removed the roof liner and used a lift jack and she lookes pretty decent, good enough to haul wood! Got the door bended back into shape and htey even close nicely. Just need to weld up the supports and put in the new windshield.

Got the old beast fixed up! Had to chain the cab to a tree to straighten it out to get the windshield to fit and it took some jerry rigging, and lots of silicone, but she is roll'in down the highway again! Time to get some work done.

Trees are so useful!! Good for straightening bumpers out too!

Good fix. I'm glad you were able to get it back together.
