Nice looking exo! How much did it weigh? A lot? Also, I'm guessing the portion that wrapped around the rear wheel wells interfered with articulation, right?

Nice looking truck, man!

well I took off the kit because it weighed about 800 lbs and when crawling on rocks and stuff could not do much without it tipping over
the cage did work the truck as you see it was flipped over in the parking lot about thirty minutes after the last bead was burned and not a scratch on it butt it look a ten ton fork lift to put it back on its sneakers

I made it out of schedule 40 gas pipe

I know laugh it up but it was cheap and thought it was bling at the time

thanks the cage served its purpose for the time I had it broke through acouple of steel gates one night and alot of trees paid the ultimate price because of that rack

1.5" I.D. .250 wall thickness it was very heavy had to put to add a leaves in the rearjust to handle it

exhaust worked very good only problem was it seemed to trap the condensation when the truck wasnt running but blew it out quickly with a couple of revs

by the way built that myself out of sched 40 and weld fittings for gas pipe ( did not have a bender availible at the time)

cut it off cause to top heavy
