    Did mine today took me about an hour.
    Didn't weld because I don't have a welding machine.
    I love not having to worry about rubbing anymore :)

    How much are guys paying to have their cab mount trimmed and boxed in (bend and weld a steel plate across the cut out section of the cab mount)?

    I can do the cutting and grinding but I don't have the tools to do the plate cutting and welding.

    Is it really necessary to box it back in? Or can you just coat the exposed edges with rust protection paint and call it done?

    same shit as everyone else
    Why does the cab mount stick out so far like that? I just cut mine but I removed much more then that. Should I worry about loosing structural integrity? I have no plate installed...
