Thanks for all the compliments guys!!
A new cage was one of the priorities for this stage of the build. Safety and overall performance were at the top of the list with a new tub, hood, fenders after that.
There is a lot more than meets the eye at first glance of the cage design. I needed to make it removable so the tub could be installed. It had to fit inside the tub. It had to be easy to get in and out but retain good side strength. The design also needed to be in a shape that would slide off an obstacle regardless of direction from front to back. First I came up with a unique way of securing the cage to the frame, followed by mounts that would work with and around the tub. The front mount will fit inside the boatside without compromising foot room, while the middle mount is incorperated into the body mount. The side hoops and rear bars all run along the same plane allowing the "slide" ability. All outside bars are 1.75" 120 dom to resist denting on impacts, while some of the inner nonimpact tubes are smaller and or thinner to save weight were possible without sacraficing strength. All tubes are single pieces including each entire side hoop. Even with the more cage kit I used to have, I knew I needed something to keep me safe with all the extra ability this rig would have. There is a full layout of the cage in my build thread on my sig. Might even be some info on that axle

This is definitely an interesting contest. Thoughts on using pictures for future contests? Too cluttered? Thoughts?

It's extremely difficult to showcase all aspects of a rig with just a few pics. I just shared a bit of my design thoughts of just a few main points of my cage. I could do the same for so many other components of the rig, and I'm sure tdij could do the same for his. Neither of us show any real detail of our builds in those pics. It's also very hard to decide when to even enter the contest cause as we all know, a jeep is rarely ever finished.

I think in this case the single pic may be hurting me on top of each page. Not seeing the other 2 or the build list, people may be just choosing on looks of that pic alone. Somewhat evident by the comments made.

All the comments I have read have focused more on the specifics of the builds rather than the solitary pictures. And remember, this is round two so most of these folks have been over these specs more than once.
