    looks good man. dont go 1 ton until you have to. you'll probably break your rear first, i'd find a set of 3/4 tons and run them. resist the urge to go 37"+ and 3/4 tons should live just fine.

    I'm liking your cage :D , If that was the first one you have ever built then I think you got fab'n in your blood!

    Wow thats Oklahoma, my uncle lives there and all his pics look like a wheat field.

    Nice work.

    That is a nice cage. I like the handholds - I'm guessing no one has pulled one loose yet. :D

    "Anybody can mash the gas and steer with 1 tons, theres no finesse needed!"

    Or is it " Nobody wheels with that kiddie 1/2 ton junk"

    I've done both , and had fun!

    Hi-jack over!

    Thanks Jeff
