I haven't ever done this particular modification, but I have read about several guys that have. That modification is not one to be taken lightly and requires a lot of patients. You have to cut short sections off (no longer than 1") and weld it up as you go. The roof corners are the hardest to do and make it flow with the rest of the cab. If you cut too much before welding, the different layers of metal will seperate and will be a bear to weld back together. WES
