So a cage outside the vehicle as well as the cage already inside it? Seems redundant

I do like the bare non-exod cab look, but youre just going to turn it into a raisin anyways.
However I admire the effort to keep the genuine Toyota look

I debated for a long time if I wanted to exo my build or go internal so Im just wondering what your thoughts were on this
Because i think exo cages are uglier than sin. I designed the truck this way so all i have to do is do a little cutting of the cab and it goes on and comes off in 4 bolts. Not too hard. I dont have any glass at all.

Yes they can be pretty ugly and takes a ton of effort to make it decent looking. If its that easy to remove the cab then I agree with you. It would take a lot of work to cut everything you already have out just to make an exo. I thought you had said in your previous posts that you were going to run glass and were going to tie in the windshield frame to the cage or something like that.

Id love to have a windshield, but with the way i wheel, it would be destroyed quickly.

I finally did an exo and and while it works great and is functional I really don't like it. But given my driving record and being on my lid a couple times it was an evil necessity. Swapping cabs is major ordeal (at least in my case) and not something I want to do anytime soon again.
