Well. I thought I'd be able to save my cab. I was incorrect. Rear floor crossmember is too far gone to salvage, and I cannot find one of the weld in ones.

Looking for a source of entire cabs. Would prefer a stripped one. Other than car-part and southern Craigslist ads, any suggestions?

I have seen four guys carry a stripped dodge cab out of a Nebraska JY.

Not at all. I just wanna see you blow up a 2.9 on the way here. lmao

I think two guys with a couple 2x4's stuck through the door openings could carry a 1st gen cab. Stripped or not.

(it's been extremely hot here lately, so working in the buff is an option)

How can you refuse an offer to have someone help you work on your truck together in the nude...

There may be a good one near me, dunno if the truck is still there.

I agree that Harry's is a good option as well. If we coordinate schedules I'd even be willing to head up there and help strip it.
