    Default Commercial Truck Cab on a 5 ton

    Don't know if this has ever been asked but I'm sure someone has tried it. I want to mount a commercial truck cab to my 5 ton bobbed wrecker. The military truck cab has gotten in bad shape and part of it is because it's not really water tight. I'm thinking of like an older Topkick or maybe like an International 4300 cab. Anyone ever done or tried this??
