So Generalee7 didnt want his bed cage anymore so I took it from him :D




And in the meantime i decided to get rid of my behemoth rear bumper and did a tube one instead.
Old

New



Let me know what you guys think.

Hey what does that cage do back there except add weight and take up space... Does it go thru to the frame?... Hold a spare tire ?... You had to lose the old superduty bumper because of the extra baggage... LOL

I do prefer yer new rearbumper tho'...
I'm just a fan of Americans on a diet :D...

in the event that i do roll over (knock on wood) it should save the cab and my head from fully collapsing to the doors :eek: the cage is bolted to supports under the bed which are welded to my silders in the front and to the frame in the rear. when i do get an in cab cage, i will tie it to the bed cage. im working on where i want the spare right now. it holds my hi lift, cb antena, has light mounts, and in the event of WWIII, it should make a good gun mount :D

Cool... the front pillars collapse more so then the rear under slow rolls... Cab Cage is a good idea... Especially if yer a spirited driver... I need one as well...
