Hope this doesn't come out sounding condescending, just trying to give some constructive advice, but I think 99_to_Lifes post in 525 kind of eludes to the perils of blindly following what others have done and not planning out how it's going to work for you.

I don't think you're going to want your cab raked on your frame. That two inches to tall and the back of the cab will end up being 6 inches to tall at the back of the bed. Personally, I think the floor of the cab should sit level with the frame. Hopefully you just have the mounts tacked on. I'd cut them and and adjust.
