my cage with some paint on it

Sound_Man 04-22-2007 06:11 PM

anyone have an idea how to do the fender bar like on this on, in a such a way as to allow the tub to still come off? I figured if I bolted it I would loose most of the strength

Anyone have some pics, or a link to some, of the white and blue one fromt the side/back? I'm done my front half now, looking for ideas for the rear.

This one...

He is a member of clay county 4x4 (in FL), but their site is down. David @ terratraction built it. Here's a link to his site and there is a few trip pics where you can see it.

The River rock trip has a few that I know of.

Ok guys. Here's progress on my cage. It's all tacked now. Only thing left is seat mounts, throw the tube in for frame tie in's (plates are bolted both sides of the floor already) and the grab handles from the A to the spreader over the door. The handles should reinforce that joint nicely.

Well, since most of my ideas came from pics in this thread, here's mine:

http://www.heepin.com/gallery/07buil.../finished1.jpg

X will go behind the b-pillar when it goes back in the jeep, hip bars and the rest of the seat frame will be added once I figure out my seat situation, still have a couple gussets to add.

Does this look scary to anyone else?
Have you rolled it yet over forward?

Just wondering?

New one i'm doing for an unlimited. He wanted to keep the stock door bars and build off of them. Legs are far enough in the corner that the vents still work.

I like the A bars, but I wouldn't use the stock door bars. You could build some new with the same OD and functionality out of thicker material, but the stock ones are .065 or .120 wall depending on the year...not enough in a low diameter tube, IMO.

Just a thought.

Bushwhacker 09-12-2007 02:31 PM

Yeah, I know, I tried to tell him. We started working on the dash bar and upper bar and he says, maybe we should have just left them out. :shaking:

I dont have an 1 3/4" die, only 1 5/8", and the stock bars are 1 3/4, so that was part of the decision. The door surrounds wouldnt have fit right.

The frame atachment on the last picture looks to me like it doesn't have much support, 8" to 10" of leverage and just tubing with a bushing would be just like using a cheater bar on a ratchet!!!!!!

Maybe ask the guys at Polyperformance see if they have had any issues with that frame tie in.
