Thanks! Good luck with yours!


I fixed the cage, sleeved it and added another bar to help support it during impact considering I bent them both in one day.


Them I did one tube fender and trimmed the fender to fit. Might add another tube near the door on an angle, we will see.

I still think you should plate it behind your doors. Make it removable too.

How high up was the tube bent you cut out? I'd go at least that high.

The new tube is right where they both bent.

I made the other side, added a tube under it. Now I'm debating on running a tube about 5" above the fender tube, parallel and wrap it around to the stinger, then tie the 2 together with a few short vertical tubes. Then maybe leave the fender skins off.... Thoughts?

Looks sweet..
as far as the fenders, doesn't really seem ur style to leave the tin off.
But i like the idea of tying the fender to the stinger.

Yea I was thinking when I was looking at your exo that you should have put that other tube in on that bottom body line in the start. That's how I was planing on doing mine. Now I know for sure that how I want to do it.
And do you have a reason for not bending your front hoop the same as back hoop so it followed the lines of the cab? I want mine to follow the lines of the cab the best I can. So just seeing if you ran in to a problem that made that not possible.

The back hoop originally was straight, but I didn't like how it looked so I bent it. The b hoop I left straight for strength, figuring the bend wasn't really needed. More so I did it all so it looked nice, then gusset for strength.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it!


I did more tube work on the fender, bumper supports. Um done with em, just gotta paint and fit the fenders over.





With a fender started...not too bad
