Me to. The process will not be that easy, but the results will look nice. Going to flip the flares right to left then extend the short side down to match up with the rocker like it is now. Then I can stay this low and maintain a decent up travel.

I will never ever use cage sanctions ever again. These things are not worth the time I have in them. I only tried them to save me time.

Cant wait till spring when i can pull this cage, and build a new one. This one is only a temporary fix to get me driving. I hate it but it works for what I needed which was something to attach the seats to.

Anyway. looks like I am driving topless tomorrow 52 in the AM will not be to bad. Did not get the latches attached to the back of the hard top and the side brackets bonded back to the fiberglass where they broke out last week.

I am sure it will get looks, not sure they will be good looks. I think it looks goofy with the top off.

Thanks, but I should have just built my own cage. This bandaid will be fine till spring, then it's coming out.

Nothing really wrong with the sanctions and factory B pillar, I just think it takes away from the Awesomeness of the Rig. A full cage through the dash and mimicking the half top is what I visioned in the beginning, so I will not be happy till it's in there. I love the seat mounts, so I will probably duplicate them in the full cage design. I will probably work on the full cage a little at a time getting the bends perfect, then pull this cage out and start assembling this spring.

Only because the way the b pillar bar slopes to the rear. Other than that I like it with the top off too.

We're going to fix that as soon as I get a die set for my bender. Oh and a hydro conversion.

I love the look of dumpster. I would love to have something similar as a street queen just as it sits now with no rear cage and a usable bed.

I think so, just need a couple pieces of tube and I can make it happen.

I am still on the fence about the rear cage section.

The cage looks fine , though I think through the dash is easier in the long run . If you want a loaner die you can borrow one of mine .

I agree with you the top on is the best look. This thing is awesome. You could always just build a rear cage inside the bed...more or less just some reinforcements,nothing coming up any higher than the bed sides. I think if you did some sort of fast back type cage or anything like that it would affect the look quite a bit.

I'm kind of thinking the same thing. I don't know that I really like the idea of the fastback cage in the bed. I think it will greatly affect the look (negatively) of the truck as a whole. The c-pillars add a ton of strength though on cages because they support the b-pillar, especially when they are straight tube at a angle up to the top of the B instead of squared off like the stock family style roll bar because it adds front to back triangulation. I just think a beefed up cage under the top with nothing in the bed would look the best.
