Lol. Close, I can't take credit for building the cage - its Ryan's old one. Plan was to have Brown add to mine which wouldve ended up very similar to this anyway. This price was waaaay better than the cost of tube plus cheap labor. It was a pain to get it in but really it coulda gone worse.

Stock B pillar. Everything else is added in. No frame tie ins yet, as this was done in a field outside my buddies barn where I stored the cage for the winter, and not browns shop, it'll be going there eventually to get everything tied together and a few other goodies.

Harnesses will be coming a bit earlier than planned too. There is a A to B bar on the floor which completely blocks the stock (and anything near stock) seatbelt mounts. However that's not really a bad thing.

Bingo... So did I read that correctly that you're going to run MI with no seat belts?

There will be members from Michiana Jeep Club staying friday night there as well - a bunch of good guys, stop by and say "hey" if you like.

Presuming I go, I'd like to run into you guys before you head off for your trail. Be on the lookout for a silver Rokmen highlined TJ with swiss cheese for rocker panels!

Did I ever tell you what happened to the "I <3 Penis" magnet?

So I moved out of my house about two years ago...I had put the "I <3 Penis" magnet on the side of fridge to bring with me to the next badlands meet...well...I moved out and it stayed on the fridge, for the new owners to find.

Sorry bout your magnet

We'll be in the campground by 8:30-45 I'd imagine. Look for my jeep on a trailer along with a black TJ on 42s pulled by a silver mega cab.
