the other thing, as i read through it looked like the rear cage was made of hot rolled. the weld seam is a dead give away. maybe im wrong but just something i noticed.
awesome work man. love the designs
Hey, so to start off, yes the back is ERW, as well as the engine cage. But I am going to spend the money and buy D.O.M for the cage when I do the cab. I have been asked that a few times and I can see were you got mixed up. I plan on having 4 spots going threw the fire wall connecting the front of the cab cage to the engine cage, and 6 from the back of the cab cage to the rear cage.
As well My rockers are beat in and rotted, so I am going to cut them out and build my sliders as my new rockers. as well they are going to go forward of the doors about 6 inches and then I am going to have a tube going from the rockers to the top of the engine cage and then plate and dimple die it in for strength and looks.
I hope this cleared everything up.
