Yeah! The new tubing bender is muy beuno. The roll cage kit we had was some Jbugs junk. We’re using pieces, but decided to build a nice tight b-pilar hoop.
Because Mike has a “long ranger” gas tank we had to move the bottom of the B pilars forward (they are best welded to the torsion housing) to the pan tube. I assume we’ll do some triangulation with 1″ tube later once we figure out the shock mounts.
The A pilars were strait, we bent them out for more knee room.
C pilar and upper beam support next.DarioParticipantJanuary 26, 2019 at 7:09 amPost count: 547

Had this Green 67 all ready to go, then dumb-ass Chris pushed baja Mike’s shell into it.
I spent all morning polishing it. Looking better than before.
The power steering pump went out on the shop truck too, Chris & friends repaired yesterday. Thanks guys.AndymParticipantJanuary 27, 2019 at 7:58 pmPost count: 977

Progress over the weekend! Looks like Franz bent up a dash bar yesterday.
I finished fitting the rear down hoop and got the tranny horn supports fabed and tacked in on Sat.
We also started playing with rear end travel and started thinking about shock mounts.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorJanuary 28, 2019 at 8:30 amPost count: 7744

YEAH! class 5 cage. Having a hell of a good time. Pat did the hard part and figured out rear shock mounts, I made beam to A pilar bars, seat mount, and B pillar cross bar.
