Opinions needed

Hopefully not a flame fest.

So I want to try one of these Jegs cages, they are a fair price, and seem easy to install.

Jegs cage

Do you think my 110v welder would work to tack it together, and then take it to a pro welder to finish it up?

I use a Lincoln sp135 plus, I use mig wire, with a bottle. Thanks for any suggestions.

Jay

I dont know about the cage, but if you can weld, that welder will do .134 just fine.

That welder will burn through in a heartbeat. If you can weld, then you can do it yourself.

Thought I'd add that they make them for jeeps and some toys too.

Thats what I am looking for, anyone who has done this type of welding on a cage similar to this. Thanks for the replies...

I know for sure the brackets to the frame will need a 220 welder to get it done, just wondering about the tacks.....thanks fellas.

Jay

I made a lot of stuff with the 110 volt welder and have a 220 now. After cutting up my old frame it wasn't any thicker than the cage tubing. Using a better welder is always the best way to go.

If you can run that welder directly from an aoutlet or with a short large extension cord and use flux core wire for the frame part it would burn in just fine and dandy. I would definatly use the flux wire though, it will penetrate deeper (could probably burn through) and will not be as finiky with any areas you couldnt remove all the rust and junk.

oh, yeah king, I would say pq's cage does its job! freakin crazy lady!
