Perhaps, but that's why I decided three inches was too high and went with roughly one inch or less. The height didn't change up front so front/inner fenders should not be a problem and nothing attaches to the cab in the rear so I doubt if running boards will be a problem either...

Ordered all new mounts hardware and dogbones the new type. Minw where shot. The cab looks great. Took it off the frame for now going to paint the frame under the cab and the bottom of the cab.

Is the bed bolted down yet? Looks a little far back, but height is correct.

It's not finally bolted down but it's where it will be when it is. It is bolted into the stock frame holes. Actually, I'm pretty satisfied with the spacing now even though it's a little wider at the bottom. At least the cab and front bed panel aren't touching like they were...

Don't know if this is a common problem with Bonus Builts but could the frame be sagging? Just wondering if the truck had previous owners who habitually overloaded it.

That's quite possible. It's a 61 year old truck. At that age we all sag a bit...

Good post and info here.

Mine looks the same, image below. Now that the truck is running, I'm going back to what I was doing 4 months ago, making the ride a bit smoother and fixing the hole in my floor pan. However, I noticed the hole in the floor pan is likely partially due to the entire cab sitting on the frame so I need to fix that before I get to the floor pan, no wonder it's such a rough ride!

I think I'll start with the rubber pads kit from either midfifty or macs to see if that helps as the rubber in rear is missing, and the front mounts are clearly barely there. If that doesn't raise it I may have to figure something else out.

Thanks Yosemite! I asked that question 7 years ago but late is better than never! That truck was finished and sold in 2014.

Haha, yeah... I was just looking into fixing my floor pan and saw the cab was on the frame and likely caused some the floor pan issue to begin with, and then found this post when trying to figure out what it's supposed to look like. Even 7 years later it's good info!

Hopefully you have a new project.
