Fining a cab should not be a big issue it's finding one close to you because shipping it might cost more than it cost to buy it.

I have a cab no problem. It is in central Texas, thats the problem! I need a short bed. I don't know about your area, but www.craigslist.com should turn up a few trucks

shipping...

The shipping is what will kill ya. I bought a rust free truck (minus motor) from AZ for 400 bucks. Shipping to VA was 900. But, I don't think I could ever find a VA truck as solid as this one for that price. That was also before diesel went up a buck, and the truckers are starting to get pissed. :?

Yup, shipping is killer.

I found a rust free super cab in AZ. The cab was going to cost me $800 and shipping was $1,300. I had it all setup but the the seller didn't have away to load the cab onto the semi trailer and wanted a bunch of extra money.

I also found one in South West TX. But I would have to drive to pick it up and do all the loading myself. 16hr drive each way

I have a 73 cab/front clip in michigan $550. I paid $1800 and went to oklahoma to pick up the truck because I needed the spotless camper special bed. If you look around locally you should be able to find one. I know here in MI the cabs are easy to come by as most of the asparagus/fruit farmers are updating thier 1 ton 73-79 stake trucks and being used only in the summer the cabs are rust free.
