ID:	1236753Very tricky part (for me) all tacked in. I had it almost done yesterday and realized the bottom of the column was pinching my shifter. Had to move the wiring hole and move finishing plate up an inch. Careful cutting and poof... problem solved.

        A little backstory... I wasnít going to spend $900 on a custom length column. So, I bought a cheaper one on amazon. I figured out how it worked and cut it to length, then welded back together.

              Does your cab tilt, or is it fixed?

                      I didnít want that hump in the fire wall, and I really didnít want to fit an engine cover around it.

                          I like it humpless...

                          Why was the hump there origionally? Radiator air flow?

                            I believe you are correct. I have looked at a lot of old pictures and thatís the only thing I could think of.
