Truck looks good!

Now is a great time to address the cab drains. They're notorius for clogging up with leaves. A few extra holes or a wider opening at the bottom will definitely help them drain better.

Looks great Jeff!

Interesting setup you've got going on there with the AC compressor below the power steering pump....they're usually the other way around. That CII pump is on quite the angle, although I doubt it matters as long as it is full. Custom mounts for both? I see also that your cab is originally a Non-AC...so you must be doing a custom install here?
