Looking sweet. What is your wheel base? Looks like you might have to clear the cab for the rear tire.


Be sure to take lots of pictures of your rear radiator mounts, I'm doing the same with mine and I might need to steal your ideas....

I wanna say like 112 or 114 it's pretty close to a stock SC SB ranger, but the cab is pushed back a little to clear the back of the heads and tranny. Im hoping it clears.The tires do push back when the susp. Compresses idk we will see also gonna get some stock Chevy leads as its ass high right now.
I'm hoping to get it mounted this week and I will take pics for sure!

Keep updating. I watch it. Just don't always reply. Its goin to be nasty when you finish. and that's going to be a short wheelbase for so much power. Be careful.

Thanks alot guys!!
I think im gonna try and get some tube this week and start a roll cage, basically just a bed cage for now to mount the radiator and tranny coolers. Finished up my bed sides tonight and started looking at tire mount ideas.
Was thinking something like this what do you guys think?



And was thinking of mounting these up here reverse and tail lights.

I second this. I would tilt the spare tire the other way so when you look back you can see more.

Radiator is just about done and mounted.
The bolts sit in a hole and push the radiator down I'm gonna add a few little tabs too.


Little bracing for the lower mount plate.

It's .25" wall so I didn't want to put it through my bender. Rest of the cage will by .120" though so the rest will be bent.

I don't think the cage needs anymore triangulation. I bet that ridiculously strong already. That engine is going to have so much power I would worry about the front more. Is that the final place for the spare tire? I wouldn't put it there but it isn't the worst place to put it though.

I'm not sure about the tire yet really, gotta play around with different spots.

No there 80 lb dekas, using the stock explorer harness and computer. The guy I'm going to have tune it will use sniper software.

Well already used 100' of tube so i ordered more monday, got it for a good deal i think$4.13 a foot for 1 3/4''x.120 DOM. That should be plenty to finish up the cage and maybe a front bumper.
Also ordered some PRP ratchet style harnesses to try them out.
Probably going to order all my fuel line and fittings in the next few weeks going to go with fragola pushlok -8 and there black pushlok fittings.
Heres a few pics.

Will be doing an X behind the seats.


Waiting on tube to add another on the pass side.

Me and 2 good friends got carried away with sharpies lol


Opinions on the cage? I like it so far and am suprised at how well i am at bending tube so far ie wasted maybe 1' total out of 100' im happy!!!

I like the cage. The whole truck just turned to pure bad ass ness overnight. I'm still trying to take in everything your adding and subtracting. Lol I went with summit twist tite fuel lines for mine. Haven't got it all installed yet, but all I can say is good luck. I am now on my 3rd order with summit, ordering more and returning shit I didn't need. My engine tuner told me there was no way I was getting right the first time. He was right. Haha
