That's not a cage, it's a roll bar.

Did you tie that rollbar into the frame? I've always wondered what the added benefit of those were. Not saying they don't do anything, i've just wondered if they can actually protect the cab.

It's not tied in yet and it's not even close to done yet. ( I won't be running the truck until it's tied in )

I'll be adding to it this summer. Going to be front half exo.

Found better pic's of the cage.




Picked up my own bender today so starting the rest of the cage soon. As well as the 1 ton swap.

Guess it's time to get off the wallet
