Gutted the camp consensus was around 200 lbs. I'm doing all of the processing for the first time so no butcher to actually weigh him. He had a really big neck in comparison to other deer I've seen.

It was a very good thing I put them on.

G's wifey busted his new steering set-up mall crawling the other day

So we crawled under the LJ last night, sleeved the lines with kevlar wrap and re-routed others to keep them from rubbing through again. I'd figure I'd update this build because there isn't much happening in my thread.

You have done enough work on it, update away.

Also, drove to work today and went to get a car wash and the manager cane out and denied me a car wash. A car wash denying me a car wash? Are you serious?

No leaks too.

Cage Ideas

Went to work on some cage design today with a buddy. Take a gander at some of the screen shots. It's not complete but it is a good start. Some questions that you guys might be able to help me answer.

1. For the rear seat belt, do the mounts on the cage need to be in the exact same place as stock or can they be be moved some? I would like to bring the C Pillar on a slightly steeper angle if we can move those rear seat belt mounts.

2. Does anyone have the bends and distances laid out for the A-Pillar? That's pretty hard to estimate w/o tearing it all apart.

Note it's not finished but please feel free to comment and provide me any feedback you can.

There is no need for the bends in the A-pillar dash tubes. You can get straight tube down through the dash to the floor and it will be stronger. I would do something like Poly Performance and build a 2 piece A-pillar with a sleeve in the windshield area so you can rotate it into position before final welding. When I did Lu's cage it made it very easy to line up the A-pillars and door surrounds.

I will see if I still have the bend program for the A-pillars on my last cage. If i am remembering correctly the proper angle at the top is like 58* and so the bend at the dash would be like 32*. Those numbers sticks in my head for some reason but I'll see if I still have those dimensions saved.

Also, the windshield overhead bar, is there a reason it bends right before it welds to the A-pillar? If possible, I would run a straight bar and then bring the overhead diagonal right into the same joint between the windshield overhead bar and the A-pillar bend. That or if you want to keep your design like that at least add in a gusset between the bend in the windshield top bar and the bend in the top of the A-pillar.

Lastly, I would move that short little piece of tube supporting the bent diagonal brace in the C-pillar window area up to the actual bend in that tube so that it supports the bend. I assume you are trying to keep that area open for back seat access? otherwise I would just make that bent piece straight into the node on the B-pillar.

My suggestions to make it a little stronger but still keep the interior free of tubes.

Using a top that windshield top bar can't be as far forward as I drew it. Just thought about that since you will need to be able to swing the latches on the top and clear the bar.
