Has anyone thought of using the 3rd brake light as an amber? the wires are up on the roof and i cant imagine it being that hard to find a clear or amber lense and putting LED bulbs in there, what do you think?

Also randy and the few otheres with in cab cages, how did you route your tubing around the front of the dash? and where did you go threw the floor at, can you snap some pics of it? my main concern is im a manual and i need room for clutch, also i dont want to cut into the body mounts. did you keep that stock center bar that everything is mounted on or did you replace it, i know not use incorperate that actual tube into the cage (its like .025 wall toyota thin), but im just wondering if it would be wise to replace it or just use some 1" to tie it to the cage (just to secure it more)

So are you saying that there are parking light wires up by the light? Are they accessible by removing the light?

On my cage the bars go down the windsheild posts though the dash behind the vents. i used the stock cross bar, and basically welded it to the cage. It could be replaced with another tube, but i didn't have the time to re-do the entire dash mounting brackets, the column mounts, and vent and heater control mounts. I would have liked to do the / \ shaped down bars in the winsheild area, but that would require getting rid of the defrost vents. I will add a bar across the front of the firewall at the botom of the windsheild to the engine cage. with the engine cage being tied to the inside cage i'm not worried about it in the least. The inside cage vertical down bars on the front of the cage are far enough forward that they don't get in the way when getting in or out. the legs sit on top of the floor above the cab mounts, with plates on the bottom of the floor and bolted to the body mounts. All of the legs are tied together front to back with another tube along the floor at the edge of the door opening. i did snap some pictures for you, but on a 35mm cam. I will get the film developed and get them scanned for you within a few days.

i talked with jason also about the motor! LOL, you were probably standing on top of the trailer when i came by.

I was there on saturday also, with mike kim and chris, we all walked over to the hardins to see how much damage they did while they were fixing it, this was right before everyone left for dinner.
