truck gained a few pounds, 72 feet of tubing worth

the cage isnt 100% done yet but its getting there. dash will be built in the next month or so. my bank account is practically empty, building a truck at 19 while attending college isnt the best finacial move but i like it so :
went riding today and the bikes fit with the cage!

ya it helps hold them a bit. but we will see how it all fits and works once the x gets put in the back and the spare tire mount

Looks awesome, I like how you brought tube out the back.

You do that yourself or get a shop to do it?

what happens when you flex the truck with the 2 rear tube? Need a cage in mine but with the frame flex im a bit worried if i try to tie the bed with the cab that something will have to deform each time the frame flex a little.
