    Pulling the Trigger On A Cab - 2032R

    OK, so I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a cab for my Gen 1 2032R.

    Right now the plan is to buy the Curtis Hard Side Deluxe Cab with the heater kit and the switch/fuse panel as options. The cab comes with a front wiper and Curtis doesn't appear to offer a rear wiper option. I know this setup has issues with a backhoe but I don't have one and don't plan on adding one so, that's not a concern for me.

    I have some LED lights added to my ROPs that I'll have to remove and remount on the cab so that's a "known" thing. I'll also have to run by the dealer and pick up some antifreeze for the heater install since I'll be installing this thing myself.

    I want an interior dome light and radio but I think I can find aftermarket units to use for those for a lot less $$ than what Curtis wants.

    What else am I missing? What else should I be concerned with?

    Oh man... mainly you have to be concerned about getting all sweaty while you are out there in single digit temperatures clearing snow.

    I just came in from about 2 hrs of clean up and wow... that C-C-C-cool F-F-F-fresh air S-S-S-sure was refreshing. :-)

    Maybe a fan that swivels so you can move some air into certain window areas when needed and use in the summertime.

    Plowing snow in single digit temps doesn't bother me in the least. It's plowing at 33 degrees when it's turned to rain but cold enough for that rain to freeze and turn me into an icicle that bothers me!

    I guess I'll just have to learn to deal with the sweat!

    Are you going to pick up the cab or just drive down there on the tractor and have them install it?

    I suppose I could just wander over with a pallet jack and drag it back home.

    The funny part of it is that the cheapest price I found on it is through "Green Dealer" out of IL. So even though Curtis's building is only a few miles from my house and I could easily pick it up myself, it's about $1,000 cheaper to buy it from someplace 2,000 miles away and take the free shipping and no sales tax. Go figger!

    Curtis does not sell direct (although Artillian, now owned by Curtis does). That dealer most likely would be having the unit drop-shipped so you may be able arrange a pickup and save the cost even though your paying the Green Dealer. If I'm not mistaken, Frank did exactly this.

    Exactly as Kenny mentioned.

    I found my best online cab price with free shipping. In my case it was also Green Dealer. I called them and mentioned I’d pick the cab up and they reduced the price by ~$200 if I recall.

    This.

    Back in the day our dump trucks didn’t have A/C. You absolutely need this to keep windshield/ windows clear on humid/rainy days. In the winter it will help direct heat to certain glass areas also.

    Something as simple as one of these for $15-$20

    Got the cab, heater and switch/fuse block ordered today. Unfortunately, neither the dealer nor Curtis has any in stock right now so Curtis will be building me one and it won't be ready for pickup until the 3rd week of March. Booooo!
