FJ 55 Cage Help

I am looking for any help you want to offer. I am looking to chop the top off my Pig and then build a family style full lenght cage in its place. I am looking for cage ideas, what size tube to use, any pit falls or things to be concerned with. I am also looking for anyone in the So Cal area that has a beder and would like the challenge, I will gladly pay for the use or help with bending. I have the welding covered. Thanks for any and all help, you guys have been great with all the other help on this project. Tim

Hey Tim, I have a fully hydrolic tubing bender here at the house now, if all else fails I could bend them up for you. I have dies up to 1.5" but can get a 2" or larger if needed. Send me some pic's of that thing so I can see how it's coming out.
