Well, I got it home.

 

The Cozy Cab IS the body. As in, you take the factory body/running boards off, replace it with the Cozy Cab, and then bolt the seat back on inside the cab.

 

We used a loader to get it into my Ranger... and my mud flaps dragged! 4 hours later, I'm trying to find a hill to back up to and a tree to chain it to so I can drive off and unload it. Because I have a 1k lb beast in the back of my truck, and no one to help unload it.

 

This ought to be fun.

 

Are cabs like this rare? The only ones I've seen that aren't a soft cab seem to bolt over the top of the body, and rest on the running boards, not replace the body.

The cab doesn't just sit on the fenders and floorboards, IT REPLACES THEM.

 

This was way heavy...

Dude, being here in northern Canada, I would almost give a testicle for that tractor.

 

Nice Grab.

Thanks!

 

I figure after it's all cleaned up and back together, I'll take the cab off, spray the floor and underside and the inside of the roof with truck bedliner, insulate it with that bubble wrap/foil stuff, and foam over the top of that. After I add new weather strip and some kind of custom cut hard plastic to finish off the interior, I'll get new weatherstrip and finish it off with a rooftop RV AC/Heater.

 

Hey man, if those Bobcat guys get full HVAC, why can't I? LOL!

And there's still plenty of room for a radio, a couple of speakers, a cabin light, and a cigarette lighter/power port for charging Ye Olde Phone/Accessories. You could probably hear it, too - it should be pretty well soundproofed by then.

It's also gonna need some LED work lights atop that cab (front and rear)... maybe as headlight replacements, too.
