^no kidding..lol, thats why i finally just got one.

or zack, draw up plans on paper or make a cardboard template and take them to a Exhaust shop that can bend DOM or watever yer using. some do some dont. but thats how my buddy did the cage in his 240. they actually had one shop make a template outa exhuast pipe, so they could have that for when they need to get a new cage built, so they can just copy it

i could get one but you also have to know how to use it. its not just stick it in and bend it.

have you ever tried to use one? its not easy.

plus my buddies will only take a few minutes to bend it up when they are ready. and a heated garage is nice too

and yes i have one but i wouldn't be able to get the truck out of the garage once im done, barely fits now.

Zach, how tall do you think it will be when your done? I wasn't thinking it would be over 8' to the top of the cab? I'm planning on putting 8'-6" doors in the new garage, that should be enough with the amount of lift you doing right?

it measures 6'-6" right now. it will only be ~3" higher so 6'-9"~10" so i think you will be fine. not sure how much your rack takes but surely not 2'

also my heated garage is only a 7' tall opening and the door has a handle on it which cuts it within 1~2 inches now...
