Is this hinged/moving like this for a reason or is it not solidly mounted yet?

(the what looks like light mount above the roof)

It is a lightbar Jey, we have 'em like that so you can loosen them, adjust 'em, then tighten them back up; also, you can take them off that way if you don't need it on or just fold it back out of the way when you don't need the lights. If it was solid mounted it would make the height of the truck permanent, whereas this way you can fold it down out of the way.

I will have a boss welded to the actual light bar, and then two holes drilled in the mounting plate. it will have two positions. up and down I will have the option of removing a pull pin for quick release. holes and position have not been determined yet, but that should be done tomorrow or some time this week. I'll be putting a full day of work in on the truck tomorrow so hopefully I'll have the D pillars and rear X finished. then I need to start working on seat mounts.

Looks great Jason, she's come far from that Perris trip that you broke your hoops on. Good angles too, I've seen a ton of people lately with crappy squares and rectangles in their cabs, but your's will actually hold up, .Call me sometime so I can check it out.

How much you want to cage mine?

On a more serious, affordable note, are there any companys that offer weld-in cage kits for our rangers?

I was planning on doing a tube frame to put a v8 in, you've taken things to the highest level I have seen of any truck on the major ranger sites.

Hats off to ya!

Some are available, but they are overpriced and not worth spending money on if you are trusting your life in the truck. Do it yourself and make it safe.
