    Got some stuff I need to mount on my cage and wondering what is best and why.

    Speakers: they are like 6 X 9 box speakers with typical U shaped mount.. I was thinking they could be riveted by drilling hole in tubing and using a rivet gun to mount. Drilling a hole and tapping it for a bolt to mount the speaker, or drilling a hole all the way thru and running a longer bolt thru both sides.

    Fire Extinguisher: Same methods plus I saw a velcro attached foam holder. Not sure how that would work.

    Let me know what your opinions are. thanks.

    attaching stuff to a cage is fine... though I wouldn't drill holes in it to do it. Better to weld on some tabs and bolt stuff to them.

    I use hose clamps for a lot of that type on mounting. Not nearly as fancy, but works as well if not better and a whole lot less spendy.

    Just make some tabs that bolt to what ever and lay flat along the length of the tube. Depending on length & weight one may do it, but it usually needs two.

    why not just use some u bolts? simmilar to cheap exhaust clamps.. just the u part drill a couple of holes in the speaker box and put a washer on befor each nut? it would only cost like 5 bucks and would work great.

    Good idea skid pan I am definately gonna check into that. I could probly even get stainless or chrome for some bling. Just wouldn't feel right to hang a $14.00 speaker with a $40.00 clamp. :doah:

    I'm getting one of those to mount the camera I'll use to film the Aholes "driving" in front of me, which I will upload to a website entitled something like stupidfokingdrivers.com

    I already used one to mount my rear view mirror - it has a 4" monitor embedded in it, and was too big to attach to my existng rear view mirror. So I took off the stock one and used this to mount the new mirror.

    Also going to get some fourtreks stuff to mount sun visors to the roll cage.
