Installing OHC: Does this look right? Regular Cab..

I took off my headliner and this is what I see:


is there suppose to be a gap? or do I have it in the wrong spot?

no they do not line up. I just did my OHC install tonight. I used a self tapping screw on the back because the way mine sat it was too low in the back.

Go to this thread and print a copy of the OHC mounting template. Use it to verify hole locations and fit before you cut anything.
