TY

I am gonna add a cage around the top of the cab too. So I can Rub these darn trees without busting the front glass. Plan on taking the front clip off this winter and tubing it too.

I think I am gonna rhino line my truck boxes. You guessed it flat black... :D

Thanks.

The deck/flat bed part is 1/8th Tread plate. It rests on 1/8x1.5x1.5 angle.
My main cage behind cab is off of an origanal truck roll bar cut down to just the hoop. 1.75 for rockers and the bars from hoop to back of bed.
I used some smaller Pipe for bracing. I know PIPE. But my next one is gonna be tubing. I just got my bender the other day. I will get some closer shots and post them this evening. I will mock up the truck boxes maybe towards the weekend for a picture as well.

Looks great! How did you attach the rocker tubes tot he frame? Did you weld to the outside or dod you drill a hole and push the tubes through and weld to a plate on the inside of the frame?
Rockers was welded to the outside of the frame. I made a body mount that bolted to the cab/rocker with a rubber block.
