You gonna have your links done by Moab? Wish I was closer so I could help.

Cheers

Me too man. I could use a hand

I'm not gonna have it done by then. I will just be collecting parts and doing some figuring for a while. It will be much easier when the warmer weather gets here.

Do you really ever have people sitting in the back? If not you don't really need to bend the tubes. Just run one between the back cage and then triangulate off that to the main hoop. You'd lose a little head room but it would be strong.

Cheers

That's true. I haven't had my back seat in there for over a year, and it won't fit with the cell anyway.

Any good ideas on what to do with the sound bar?

Quick paint drawing
Just box in the sound bar, gusset heavily to the B pillar, and triangulate where you can. Just start boxing it all in. As you go the overall look and plan will more or less organically form all on it's own.

Cheers

Awesome paint skills dude don't know why I didn't think about just leaving a spot for it. I need to see if the drill press in my grandma's garage works. Then I'd have a tubing notcher.
