    I am going to be making a cage for my truck soon and am wondering how people have attached their cages to the frame in the front(A and B pillars). With the boxes under there to stiffen the body along with the shackel and body mount there isnt much room left. Any advice or pictures would be great thanks.

    i welded some braces in place of my doors to support the tub, & cut my boxes out. i only left the part that hangs down by the frame. the boxes were full of dirt, i mean completely full, i bet they wieghed over 100#'s each. after the boxes were gone i cut out the rocker panel & replaced them w/ a piece 2x2" square tubing. i ran some smaller 1x1" tubing from the 2x2 to the part of the box that was left & trimmed it down some.
