    Ok, I know it's silly, a poor investment, and will appeal to only a few. That said, I found a very cheap truck and have the shop space so.......

    I recently purchased ( though have yet to pick up) a pretty well used 9400i that I intend to put in the shop for the next couple of years and completely rebuild/customize to make it my own....
    From This....

    To something closer to this....

    My first question is, Can I realistically do anything to the sleeper to make it more of a mid-roof like the "After"
    picture?

    Not sure where you’re located, but there’s a place in Sioux Falls SD called prairie technology. They’re known for their day cab conversion kits but may have a custom flat top for such an application? Not sure but they might be worth a call? Just a thought. Otherwise it might be find a scrap yard and take the the top you want. Good luck!
     
    NightHawk365 Thanks this.

    Nice.... That's a 9900 right? I would have preferred a 9900 actually, but haven't been able to find the right deal on one.

    Might be easier to change the whole cab with a 97 or 8 than changing that roof cap.
    In fact the way the cab roof is, I would find a good international parts man and see if the actual cab parts numbers are the same between the two.
    I have a parts truck with the sleeper you want, I would probably give you if you came and got it. lol
    I haven't run my international for a few years, and thought about cutting 2 feet or more off the back of the parts rig and grafting it on mine, but would never get around to it.
