it should be 3inches lower than a suburban with a sock crossmember with 8inches of lift and 44s. just measured 22 1/2 from the lower crossmeber link mounts and 25 1/2 from the upper frame link mounts

spent the morning cleaning the cab and taking every thing out of it so i can start on the cage. tell you what it's really easy when you have half a roof. will have to wait untill monday to pic up some steel to start and will have to get a pipe bender from dusty

if your talking about the roof not the one that came off. will do something similar to the front clip. will be doing mostly an exo-cage but will have at least one hoop on the inside for bracing whats left of the cab in and a place for tieing in seat belts and seats.

i cut the lower rockers off the cab and made for lack of a better term rock rails to mount the cage to.
as for the rest i think that it is pretty self explaning. and no i am not done with the cage yet so it will have gussets and more trianglation.

Cage looks awesome man! Something about the front end though looks like an elephant with its trunk cut off. I guess it just looks awkward to me, but to each his own. Top notch fab work!

I think it would look better full tube (no cab at all) to match your front... but thats just my 2 cents

Nice job on the fab!

Why not have pieces straight from the frame to the sliders so it would be a small boatside? Having them bend out like that seems like a request for rocks to stop you.

i have tought about that. i started off going to do that but thought that this way would be stronger. incase i roll it again. besides there is just not that many big rocks on the trails around here. as with just about every rig that you build its a work in progress. and i already have plans (full tube from round up)in my head for the next gen of this truck

I dont click on the thread for a few weeks and you do this? Turn it into a "pipe truck" as my mom just called it lmao. Awesome build!
Tell the camera man to not have so much coffee next time he is filming.
