I'm guessing the act of welding on hundreds of pounds of tube won't help to float any boat

its ok i dont mind the jokes and i expected them when the decision was made to put the cage on it.

without the cage it would be beat to piss like silverxj's and i dont like that junkyard jeep look.

to each their own i guess and thank god we all dont wheel the same thing. that would be boring.

Chill out long hair! Your exocage is nicely done, and pretty damn functional.

Here is the exo cage for my knuckles that my buddy came up with, sorry it is a blurry pic. I'll post another once it's welded.

did not fit ... just need to change it a touch. I could modify the caliper bracket, but that doesn't make sense since the bracing isn't welded yet.

i assume the notch is for the caliper?

the lowest point in the pic where the two rolled pieces comes together is too far down ... simply going to cut the section out and move it up.

Make sure you check the caliper also. The banjo bolt goes into the caliper right up by the knuckle.
