Lightbulb Cab Flip Made Easy

PATENT PENDING...

Needed to come up with a way to make a cab safe to work on while still being easy to move and allow better access to different areas and this is what I ended up with.

Welded 3x5 plates to the pipe and anchored them to the cab mounts.

Could use a couple mods but for a rough draft it worked like a charm.
Only took a couple hours to fab up.

Super easy to flip up on the firewall to work on the cab floor.

The empty cab was no problem to lift with two people.
