Honestly I'd keep going with the tube and make it an exo. Looks killer.

added a few more braces to the cage and side ones, tap for the prop valve and mounted the tool box, fished alterntor bracket, rads finished. just need to get a new 1410 yoke for the rear and some straps and she's moving!!! then just little things like mud proof engine bay and put a floor down in the back, wire in rear lights and make some temp fenders and baboomshaaa she's done!! and ready for the toy run!!!


i think that 45 degree rci fill neck will work perfect!!

Idea for the filler neck, cut a hole and run it strait up into the tool box. That way you can lock the box and help keep assholes from stealing your gas. Just a thought since it's happened to me.

well managed to get some box sides from classic auto wrecking in langley!
so i got em home cut them up and started to create something. took 10'' out of the front and 11 1/2'' out of the rear, and then 4'' around the wheel well. little bondo and paint and then mounting! hopefully have them done for this weekend, snow wheeling!!


light mock up just sitting on tire. but you get the idea

HAHA, well I like em Dan When the shit gets real, the bedsides on my truck can be removed with 4 bolts per side, literally a 5 minute job. There will be some more tube added to mine when I get time. I like the bedsides Jordan!

well got three of the four headlocks mounted, what. a. nightmare.
after getting the first one mounted and filled i herd the worst.. ssssssssssssss..
dammit! there was a leak pulled everything off and found the pin hole son of a bitch! welded and were good, but good thing i check the other cause one rim had a few pin holes bubbling. here was the headlocks through the steps


i used washers all around to line up the ring as best i could.

after tacking a welded stitches in a criss-cross pattern



the first weld only filled about 80% of the valley so i had to do another lapgo fuck yourself
nik (procircuit) grinding a way! thanks man..




man they look so cool. but I'm nervous about how they are going to drive.. i tired my best to line up the tire but i have a bad feeling they are going to wobble
more pics to come..

grinded and painted
primed and painted white

and then the fun part... mounting.. fuck.

done (but then had to pull for leak ) hahahere is a photo of that little bastard, i used oil around the top of the ring and a air gun under blowing up to see bubbles and found it,drilled and filled and no leaks, for now ....i torqued them to about 17fps.. conned them a little more than liked but it should be okay, i should have made a filler for the inside of the lip but will see how bad it is..

I like it! I always thought that the whole point in tubing the rear was so you could chop the frame behind the cab, link it and have a better departure angle because you don't have to mess with a rear hanger and the extra length. Def bad azz though!

I like that you got beadlocks that are just plain, I hate beadlocks that have some bad ass pattern in the bk you fight with them airing down and airing up, good thinking
