Pretty much do it all type of rig. I dont really do that much of just one thing.
I would say i enjoy the truck the most at the dunes though.

Well already used 100' of tube so i ordered more monday, got it for a good deal i think$4.13 a foot for 1 3/4''x.120 DOM. That should be plenty to finish up the cage and maybe a front bumper.
Also ordered some PRP ratchet style harnesses to try them out.
Probably going to order all my fuel line and fittings in the next few weeks going to go with fragola pushlok -8 and there black pushlok fittings.
Heres a few pics.

Will be doing an X behind the seats.


Waiting on tube to add another on the pass side.

Me and 2 good friends got carried away with sharpies lol


Opinions on the cage? I like it so far and am suprised at how well i am at bending tube so far ie wasted maybe 1' total out of 100' im happy!!!

I like it. Might want to consider mounting the seats to the cage if your harnesses are attached to the cage. It would suck if the cab moved and the cage didn't with you buckled in.

I was planning on running solid cab mounts and weld alot of the cab to the cage so then it will pretty much all be one, i think it should be fine like that?
