Startin' zee cage toonite.

.....well maybe, after i walk around the truck and look at it a few more times. ive had this sketch in mind, and i really wanna do something unique but functional and safe. i drew these a while back and ive been doin changes and re drawing crap for a while. i took all my measurements and dimensions a couple days ago and think i might have this down, but regardless lemme know what yall think of my crap and if you think i could make some changes in places.

prolly minus the roof rack:


sumwhat what the susp. might look like...its crap



for the most part i think it looks like hammered dog shit. gimme some pointers.

I would stick with either an exo or an internal, it looks like you have a little of both going on there.

none if you never wanted to run a top again. I dont' see any prob with partial internal and exo. It will be very strong if all the internal shoots straight to the frame and the exo ties into it.
the tube that runs along the front fender needs a jumper tube from the A-pillar to the fender tube to tie it together and get rid of that square corner
look in general for bigtoyfreak and his exo. you will get the idea on that tube I am referring to
All I can say is do it before you second guess yourself
