Mine is under the hood and I've tried it with and without a pump and I need the pump. The best reason to put it inside the cab would be to recirculate the warm air, I keep thinking now that I'm retired and have more time I might try to mount mine behind the dash somehow. Did you see the post about the Alaskan Prowler project?
Which heater are you getting?

It would fit better after some of the install problems I ran into do to size I wish I would have gotten that one. With the one your getting it doesn't matter which way your coolant hoses connect either, on mine one is input and the other out. If they're hooked up backward you loose up to 25% of heat, the input is on the bottom so I'm pushing coolant up through the core.

it seams like the input should be at the top so it will flow down???

If you don't find yourself with the cab full of water/mud I would mount it on the floor similar to the way Darryl (spelling) did his. That would be the easiest/cheapest way.

Only need the pump if you want to mount it above your radiator. Although I never ran mine without the pump so I cant say for sure it doesn't work. I was just looking at what AC has for their OEM setup.

One thing I read somewhere is that the pump helps prevent vapor lock also, here's the info on the connections.
