    Cool, first cage that I have seen with a swamp cooler attached. You might want to enclose the body so the cool air will stay in though.

    Looks like a 5 ton Trane Roof Top Unit! Hmmm, it would be easier than hooking up my A/C belt. Just not real sure what I will do with the condensing unit and the 208 Volt power converter! Be sure to route the condensate drain to where you could pee into it, then you will not have to stop on the trail and risk getting poision ivy!/forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Nice cage BadDog. What bender are you using? Nice work.

    Thanks for the props guys. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    It's a JD2 Model 3 knockoff bender frame with a real JD2 Model 3 die (1.75 x 5.5 x 180). It was the same price as the stripped JD2 but came with degree ring and spacers inside the frame (on pins and bolts) to keep everything where it goes, even when the die is removed. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with it.

    Thats looking really good! I like the over the windsheild beam but you better round the top so it automaticly rolls back onto the wheels! Making me want to start mine but I don't want to rip the truck apart yet! Figured I'd wait till I rolled it first... uh, yeah, I guess your right.
