So, on another note... For the last 5 years, once a month I've made a fairly decent deposit in CASH at Chase bank. Today I went to go make my deposit and they will not take my CASH! They'll accept a personal check from me but not my cash. WTF???!!! Find me ANY OTHER place/person/business that will take a personal check yet not accept cash! We're doomed!!! I'm buying guns!

Chase is and has been moving to a fully electronic funds system for a while now.

I don't bank with chase, I just make a depost there once a month. I quit banking with them when I moved here.


Electronic schmonic... I'll take cash any day anywhere! WTF kind of bank doesn't? What's the point of having a bank if they don't accept cash? Last I saw, our economy is still based on a paper currency right?

That's the plan if I go that route. With frame tie ins and better designed add in bars I think it will fair better next time.

They are ugly but I think they are mechanically sound. Now that I have a good strong welder I feel like I'm getting good penetration. Though I'm sure I'll be asking a pro like you to take gander at them when I'm done to make sure they are safe before I finish and paint it.

Once I figure out the true cost of doing it myself including parts and shipping I then plan to compare the cost to having it done locally. I'll probably have Larry and anyone else good I can find local bid it and see if they are close. If it's a couple hundred bucks different it's a no brainer but this is going to be expensive and I can't justify spending $1000 more if it's something I can do myself.

I'm far from a pro!!! I just make sure to burn it hot and I throw extra support tubes in to those things to cover my butt just in case! LOL Have you seen the jungle gyms I've built? Gussets don't hurt, they only help!

Gussets where the cage hit's the frame rails...



gussets on the cage b-pillar above our heads.



gussets where the b-pillar is tied into the cab floor.



all 4 corners of the windshield area...



Gussets are your friend!!!



MCM Fab does some nice work! Example of his craftsmanship can be seen on the front suspension of our race truck or here's a picture from his facebook that he posted earlier today...

. That's an idea, or just buy Khris a semi trailer full of Mtn Dew and have him do it. His cages look SOLID. I would trust my life to them, not that I don't trust Larry 'cause Brett is AMAZING with a welder, but I've seen Khris' cages.. Haven't seen Larry & Brett's

In all honesty, the ONLY reason I didn't offer it up is cause I'm slammed right now! But depending how soon you're looking to get something going we could knock something out for cheap. AND CRAP!!!! Just remembered I meant to call one more guy to get a price on a 3rd member and then depending what I found out I was going to pull the trigger on one today but totally forgot! Reason being, right now, until I get a 3rd member, my ford is a solid paper weight that can't even be moved out of my garage if I wanted to! LOL After the Mint and depending how good or bad of shape the race truck is in... That'll sorta dictate how busy I am.

My welds are far from "pro" but I believe my designs are solid and what I may lack in the welding area I try to make up with the design and a bit of design redundancy so that even if a weld did fail, hopefully the additional strength else where will cover. I trust my life in my cages obviously or I wouldn't be lining up in the race truck in 2 weekends! Every tube I put in my trucks has a point and they're put in from point a to point b for a reason. Pretty much I look at a cage as just a way to spread out a load of applied forces and that's how I go about doing it. Sometimes you get to make decisions on function over comfort or access and that's where things get a little tricky at times.

Speaking of cages, the race truck is loaded and hitched up to cruise around town with tomorrow! Gotta go drop it off to get some touchup work done and looking 100% sexy again for the mint!

A couple months ago I think someone mentioned that you could get a LS crate motor with a wiring harness for a reasonable price. Anyone know who was talking about them? I want to get some info on where to get those for my buddy who's looking at doing a V8 swap.
