You need to move those 5 point "neck" harness mounts up higher The mounting should be not more than 4" below shoulder height. Some one is going to snap their back

Yea I know I need to change that. I left it lower so I could still get into the back. What do you guys suggest? Hoop behind each seat? or? I put the backseat in when I take the family. Put in a hoop (black) and also tie it in to the top and side (blue)? Maybe?

Here's what the cage looks like now. What other bracing should I do? Do you think that 1 1/4 .120 wall tubing would be fine for the seat belt brace or should I use 2" .120?

Finished up the hood, then finished the body work on the front end. Used the forklift to see where I still needed to trim the fenders at.

Body work was done, so now it was time for paint. Plan was for desert tan flat, changed my mind at the last minute and went with dodge ice silver. It's great having a friend that has his own paint and body shop. He shot the color and clear for me at my shop, hell he even buffed it out for me. 2 coats color, 3 coats clear.

Put the front sheetmetal back on, needed something to break up the color. Brett said he had some paint at his shop and would bring it over.

It took two months from when I first started removing sheetmetal to final assembly. Finished the dovetail and paint in march of this year. I not going to say finished, because it will never be done. Weighted it after paint, 5160lbs with tools, spare parts, doors on, and without me in it. Much happier with that, than the 5900lbs that it was. I hope the 1tons hold, I upgraded to yukon 4340 shafts a couple of weeks ago. Had smoke coming off all four tires getting up this waterfall. Nice being able to throttle down when I need to now. Didn't used to do that with the 44. Figured I'd better upgrade the fronts before the hammers. Running my 37" Cooper STT in this climb. They do much better on the road than my swampers, great off-road to. They stick very well. Amazingly I never touched the bank. It stopped an inch from hitting the windshield frame. Backed up a little and brought the front end back down then made it all the way out. This was a couple of weeks ago at Cow Mountain.

Didn't take long to get the first dents into it. First run out with new paint. Hollister in April, running through the ravines.

Back to pulling dents and paint. Here's a few pics from the mini rubicon at Hollister. Definitely feels lighter and the visablitity is so much better.

Bought some new shocks and outboarded the rears. Welded on some new front upper mounts. 14" travel ranchos. Looks close to the coolers, but there's 2 inches of clearance.
