Default Redemption

Bye bye stupid old cage. I didn't like you from day one and now I say, "Get the fukc outta my jeep!"







More on that later.

However, in the meantime... Apparently Brimy felt like cutting and my jeep happened to be in the way.





Then Nyxis joined the assault










Due to some issues with the sheet metal, we decided it best to put the diamond plate back on after re cutting and re bending it. I may be the only jeep with dove'd diamond plate corners




Still awaiting grinding





The cage is all done in Bend Tech and looks rather naughty Next week should be fun

But now you can't put your top on. I've always wanted to dovetail mine but want to stick with the creature comforts. Remember........ happy wife=happy life.


Looks good.

The closest thing this will ever have to a top is a sheet of aluminum And the windshield will never be able to go on again with the new cage (not that I ever planned on running it anyways), so I suppose I should prolly put that up for sale too

A YJ (or CJ) top is more annoying than useful anyway. I ditched mine years ago

5:30pm. Decided to run down to the gas station. $1.09 24oz Steels spoke to me, and thus was my night.





Mike was hiding behind the F-Toy bending tube.














Cage design will make back halving very easy down the road



Much more tube to come, but it was a start for a Friday night.
