    I am selling the cage I just built as money is tight and I can always build another cage later. It was completed last month and is comprised of 1.75" x .120 wall HREW tubing for all the hoops and top halo. The triangluation pieces are comprised of 1.5" x .120 HREW tubing. It sits on 1/4" plate feet with grade 8 9/16" bolts holding it down.

    Here are a few sneak pictures and the rest are available for view HERE Which show the complete build up process.

    Asking price is $500 obo and will include delivery to anyone in Southern California. It will only fit 73-75 Blazer/Jimmy's and I'm asking for local buyers only as the thing is too fricken big to ship.

    What would it take to put in in an '83 k5?

    The floors are far too different to get it to work. It would require redoing a major portion of the legs of the cage, which as you can see from some of the pictures, will change too much of it.

    Yeah unfortunately. Part of me doesn't want to sell it but bills take prescedence and I'll never sell the truck, so the part I can reproduce is what I'm sacrificing right now.

    Can you still put the top on the truck with the cage in there?

    Oh sorry, thanks for the reminder. No the top will no longer be able to be put on with this particular cage.
