    Thanks guys.

    Wheels - yea, full cage and rear bumper are in the future. I'm still working the cage design over in my pea brain - will be flatter and more parallel to the ground - wanna make a roof rack for it.

    One of the first things I want to do when I get it out west is get it street legal (have turn signals and such on order). Then I want to go out to Seven Springs and head over to Sheep's Crossing and then on over to I-17 near Bumble Bee. Done it in a Jeep a couple of times and it's fun - in this it will be a total blast.

    Yea, so I've heard... I'm thinking I can revalve the shocks and get close - need to get rid of the progressive springs and switch to a main/tender setup. Rears have a short tender on them.

    ------------
    Got the lights all wired in and then proceeded to remove the cage, causing me to cut the upper light bar off. Eh, I'd sort of planned on it, so no biggie.



    I've not done a cage in a very long time. I have a pile of scrap 1.5 x .095 chromoly sitting on my floor now too. Damn!

    Yesterday I cut the Camburg clamps out of the stock cage and went about machining them to fit 1.5" tubing instead of the 1.75 that's on the ride. I'm not forking out a bunch of $$ for a 1.75" die for my bender (Ercolina Super Bender), nor am I gonna buy a bunch more tubing. I already have the 1.5" x 4" radius tooling and a bunch of tubing.

    Once I get the cages powder coated (anyone have any color suggestions?), the 1.5" tubing shouldn't be that noticeable - especially since bumpers are 1.5" too.

    They machined nicely.



    Started out doing a front hoop and then was going to do a rear hoop and add the side rail. Nah, that sucks and didn't work out right.

    Oh, that tube's too short. [smilie=tr_oops.gif]
    Crap, that one over bent.

    Arrrgh!!

    Drop back, eat a little lunch and start over.

    Now the cage is two main rails with cross bracing. Thus far, just the front and rear cross braces. I still need to do the B pillars, lower cross braces, diagonals and such.

    I like what's happening now.
