    BigRay,

    Sounds like the classic "How the heck do I reach the bolts from the underside to bolt this damn thing in...?" /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I know that Ryan_B cut an access hole in his inner rocker panels to bolt his cage in and then built little cover plates to close them back up.

    If your arms were 5 feet long, you could reach in from the rear access area on the rocker plates....!!! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    If I had a good answer for you, I would have my cage bolted down in the front too.....shame on me, the front two legs of the cage are sitting on the floor with no bolts at all...... /forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    <font color=blue>I have no rocker boxes /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif so thats not a problem. I'm just looking for interior shots to see if the cage is too far from the dash. Yours looks pretty good, is that a Smitty Built front cage kit?

    PM kpanza...he works for www.autoaccessory.com and should be able to get you a good price. They come as bent tubing as I recall and you weld them together.
