Awesome project! I think crews are very cool! I love the long beds better or if you stay short bed why not a stepside box? Also not to tell you what to do with your project but are you not a fan of cab lights? Your pass looks very cute in daddy's truck. Eitherway, very cool and keep the pics coming. Very nice.

That must have been a quiet ride with nothing in it.
How bad is the roof vibrations

What exhaust are you running.
Looks like a Diamond Eye any trouble with it around the transfer case.

Not really a fan of stepsides, although I don't mind them on a reg cab (ie little red express/warlock) I have a set of tinted recons that I will likely install when it comes back from the body shop. I thought about drilling all the holes at the same time as cutting the cargo light holes but decided to wait until after

It wasn't great but I only had it up to 50mph so the wind noise wasnt terrible without the glass. I didn't notice any roof vibrations

It is the diamond eye 4" and its very tight around the transfer case. I don't think it would be that bad on a normal truck that had the trans crossmember where its supposed to be. (mine is 2" farther forward) When I get it back I plan on ovaling the pipe by the transfer case and crossmember to gain clearance.

The drive to the body shop in that condition was exhilarating for me, the drive home in similar condition with a straight body and shiny new paint horrible. Something I wish I had done when the body shop had it was go through and clean and detail things like the gauges and tail lights.

I'm about to start a Cummins swap in a two wheel drive version. Did you reuse the original peddles or use them from the donor truck? Any chance i can get your email addy so i can ask you Q directly lol ??

Can anyone tell me if there are custom mounts available for swapping the 24 valve into the crew cab?

I used the 5spd pedals from the donor truck. I'll PM you my email address

I don't think you need custom mounts, it should bolt into a 72 and newer crew cab.

It is my understanding that the 24valve sits 'angled' (higher at the front/lower at the back) and therefore needs a custom mount to fit in the crew cab style frame?? We were thinking of just cutting the frame side mount off the frame of the donor truck and placing everything into the engine bay "the same" as the donor?

The guy who told me about the mounts actually sent me to the site for conversion info lol

Thanks for the email addy Ashley!!
