oh and did i mention he has a regular day job?
You said that right....

Yea guys, no updates on the truck. I have lots of parts waiting for it, but I have priorities above the truck... I hope to start back on it sometime soon, but I cant make any promises on when I can deliver a finished product.

I also got a puppy and she is another full time job!!!

He have any shots of how he tied the cage to the frame? Definitely a good looking hoop. Is he going full cage or just a tie to the frame to remove some roll?

I beleive he said he was not connecting to the frame. I don't think this is an offroad mod. More of a road racing application.

Yeah... but by tieing any cage to the frame you are removing a lot of body roll. By just putting the cage in the cab seems like you'd just be leaving the job half done. I'm sure it would help, but can't be as good. (At least from what I can think through in my head).

A little recap and update.

Rear suspension:





Up front:















It looks like im working backwards, but its all a necessity when you are doing this much custom work.



The cage:






Trying to finish up the fuel system:







As for the cage, I am only going to the body because if I ever need to remove the cab, I dont want to have to cut the cage to get it off... I really doubt there will be any body roll...




Ordered these for it tonight:
