As always .. looking good buddy!

BTW: Are your neighbours scared of you and your big Jeep? That looks like a nice clean neighbourhood in the third pic ..

I am thinkin' it might be a little late for that .. maybe a grinder would be the better option

i have never been really interested in rocker guards but the floor was so smashed up that i could barely get the old cage out. On the drivers side the floor had bent around the mounting plate. But i agree that it is a little late for guards now. As for my neighbors i am sure i will have a letter from the home owners association soon.

the cage is a mix of two kits. I have a 5 point bar behind the seats, and the rear cross bar and spreaders are from essentially offroad. The front hoop and spreaders and handles are from TOR. I know that the front hoop 4 spreaders and handles ran about 185.00 from TOR. I don't remember how much the essentially offroad parts ended up costing

The cage looks good. What kind of welder did you use? How much time did you put in it?
