Also I would love to chop cab height down as much as possible to reduce drag on windshield .
Any thoughts,ideas,advice ?
Thank you,

Joe, take a look at the template and also this cap, and you'll see the bed on your truck is in no way limiting your aerodynamic improvements. Even if you chopped the top, it is still not in the way of good aero. You need to make your truck a couple of feet longer if you want to get a tail down to bed floor level.
