What are you using to paint the cage? Are you just rattle-canning it? Or you do you actually have a paint gun?

OMMFG Zach.....

That's absolutely incredible... Turned out awesome. Once again, great work!

I saw the front needs a few more inches of lift! It's got a bit of a rake goin on! But other than that I love it! Dove tailing looks great, and I love that you kept a the Ford logo and put it on the back somehere!

What about making some sort of tray behind the fuel cell to hold thing? LIke a small toolbox, or shovel, hi-lift, etc... ???

oh ok got ya. ill get one.

well i think i mounted this bumper too high which caused it to hit the header panel, but i really cant go back further anyway because the sway bar runs right behind it. then the radiator and tranny coolers are behind it.

I see what you mean about the passenger bedside, but it isn't too bad.

Yeah... apparently I read stuff... but I refrain from working on my SAS project as much as possible.

Maybe someday I'll get off my butt.

Simply Amazing Zach. Great work as always. Love the fact that you were able to keep the bedsides.
