Thanks!



Started my exo, got the main hoop made and tacked in place.





Bent a side bar up. I am liking how its turning out. Little more trimming and tweaking and the drivers side is ready to tack in.



Back here I am gonna bend the top of the hoop to match the shape of the cab, slide the main hoop back and then bend the end of the side bar down a little to make the joint.

Thanks Greg! If it turns out half as nice as your stuff ill be happy!

This bending tube stuff is time consuming. I have bent a lot of tube in the past, but never to match something like this. I have gaining some respect for tube bending guys.

Might want to keep it far enough away from the glass to be able to change the windshield out. Just a thought. Looking good.

That would be way to thought out....

Even if I leave room, I don't know if you would be able to get it in and out properly anyway. I want it tight to the A pillar, I'll see what I can do.

That's what I ran into on mine, and I ran it to close to cowl and the wipers hit the bar when in use.

Bent up the passenger side, both are ready to be trimmed to fit



Then I bent the main hoop to match the cab better.




I also got my new rear shocks and my new bump stops, hope to get them on for Sunday
