I am almost done with my cage build. Not really full exoskeleton but just enough to minimize non rollover damage.

Rear bumpers are going tube, sliders custom built, quarter panel guards as well as fenders.

Fender and quarter panel pieces will be quick disconnects.

Here are pics of the disconnects that will be used to take bars apart. The bars in this pic still needs the uppers welded in. The passenger fenders is actually completed so see other pics

Here are pics of the rear driver and passenger sides.

I might make some small changes to get the bars as close to the rear door but due to the way the doors open, it’s kinda tough.

I decided to change the vertical bars to curved vs straight today. Looks more aggressive

I am actually not building the cage myself. I am involved in the designing of it Physically building it? No I wish I had those skills.

I am having the middle 2 vertical bars removed tomorrow and replaced with curved bars like the 2 outer vertical bars.

Bars are now complete!

Next mods will be the high jack up front and Blacking out my mirrors. Then saving up for a set of beadlocks with Toyo mud Terrains.
