Santa was good to me. Here is what I got:

Or Fab sport cage with 2 streamer bars
A to Z sliders
Solid Differential Cover for D30
Aussie Front Locker for D30 (this was backordered, but will be here soon)

Hopefully I will be able to install the cage and sliders asap. The axle work will come soon after.

Of course pics are in order as well.

Ill probably end up buying some Delta Quadbars soon too, Ill let yall know when I get them

How much was the cage if you dont mind me asking? I kind of want some kind of upgrade for mine. Also, i definitely need to see it after you get the cage installed so i can see what is like. And maybe we can go wheelin this week or next, i've been out of town all week and finally am coming back tomorrow but need to help my dad work on his pontiac 4x4 to get it running then after that i'm free to to some-well after i replace my front trac-bar for the 3rd time. Dont know why my jeep is going through the axle bushing but i got one with a lifetime warranty at auto zone so its free to replace just need a free hour to remove-go to store-and replace.
Also how are you painting your sliders? all black or you going to throw some red on there? I think they'd look real good with the step red on a black slider or some combination like that.

I honestly dont remember exactly how much. I got it from 4wd hardware with maybe like a 20% discount and free shipping so just check there. I will be putting the cage in either today or tomorrow. Pics to follow

I might be able to go wheeling sometime soon. I was debating on the CORF Carolina Backwoods trip on the 9th. We can figure something out with that.

I am painting the sliders all black. I have 2 coats of primer on one of them now. Ill post some pics once the actual paint goes on.

Finished!

The install was relatively easy. I ran into a few snags here and there but its done. I dont have the drill bit I need to do the streamers so I will get around to those later. Overall I like it though!

Thanks Zach. Yea I was debating between the two but I think the Or Fab might be a little cheaper so I went with it over the Rockhard
