|This seems like the correct place to post... So I will!
As some of you may know, I rolled my truck. To me the frame looks straight but I am taking it in to a professional next week for a second opinion. If the frame is straight, all that is really holding me back from driving is a nice solid cab that doesn't have a dent that wants to poke my head! I have a cab lined up but I have a few questions... I'll show you the donor cab first.
The cab is from a 2007, and my truck being a 2003, I don't believe there are any changes I should worry about if I keep my 2003 dash, correct?
Next, the metal box frame thing that is behind the fenders and welds to the Radiator core support, is that welded to the cab or otherwise replaceable? Because obviously the one on the donor cab is trash but the one on my truck is just fine. This is my biggest concern and I would love any feedback.
Finally, Seat Belts. In the donor cab, I am positive the airbags deployed, causing the pretensionsers to fire and the belts to stretch. So I'll need new belts and buckles. In my 2003, my buckles did not fire and still hold, but should I replace the belts? They did keep two humans from being tossed like salad inside the cab with 4 rolls. If I do replace the belts and maybe buckles, where should I buy new ones on a budget but with safety in mind?
