Not sure what I am gonna do yet on the exhaust...

Started on the bed cage...


The angle of the pic makes the roof gap look larger then it really is.......If I was level with the truck it would be alot smaller of a gap.

I have alot to do in the next 5 days to get it ready for its maiden voyage....I picked up a drivers door today, Taurus coolant fan, the floorboard removable section, the air inlet from a MASS truck.

Don't know why the tube looks all weird in the pic? Its an even 32.5" from the frame mount all the way up to the main hoop on the rear bars.

A little thing called perspective, trying to put the 3D world onto a 2D picture. Perspective really fawks with pictures and ruined my porn career.

Cage looks good, any plans for a floor?

didn't get the box mounted (cargo box on the gas tank in pic), just couldn't find anything on hand to make it work short of mounting with wood.
