does look nice only thing id add is maybe a spreader in the rear section.. it he flops on the assit looks like it may fold in pretty easy.. just my 2 cents..

does look good.. lets hear the rest of the specs..

nice work, but I agree the rear fenders look loke they may not hold up as well as the rest of the truck.

I like the front, looks beastly. I have been thinking about intagrating a halo into the edge of the roof to keep it from colapsing. Then glass breakage is the bigest problem, speedglass is the anwser :D.

Fenders

Are the tube fenders tied to the body or just to the tailing edge of the bumpers and the rockers...

If they are not tied to the body I would recommend adding struts between the hood hoop and the fenders - same in the rear (plus tie it to the uni-frame to make it bomb proof!)....

Lest you suffer this fate:



This was a stump that hooked the front edge of the fender on Dan Starc's rig

Mine are like this and I have had the whole weight of the rig - (2 tires in the air) on these fenders and just picked up some gouges in the steel - no dents:



Also in the back of your cage I would triangulate across the opening or at least add a tailgate type strut... Unfortunately that location is the weakest area on mine too - if you make that area strong you have pretty much lost any functional value for storage or access :( - Damn fiberglass structural hatch... :rolleyes:

If the cage is not tied to the body it WILL shift during a roll... :flipoff2:

We talked about adding such a bar. The owner was still undecided when he picked up the rig, but I think he will add one.

The tubing is 1 3/4".120 electric weld. Look's like the tubing that bent on that tan-grey? cherokee is thinner wall.

Specs... 4.3 Chevy, 700R4, NP231, Dana 60s
