    I gave up on the intagrated rollcage idea and just decided to go with a partial exo cage. Anybody have one? Looking for ideas so I can start setting mine up. Thanks.

    no, we humans have internal skeletons. At least I hope we all do! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Btw, you might do some sort of search for DBlazer, he used to have an exocage on his K5 before the current incarnation.

    I think you wanted to include this http://tanner4wheel.com/fab/cage.html ANyway, they are located in Colorado Springs. I haven't heard much good about their mechanical work, but I hear the do good off-road fab stuf.. Just pricey!!

    from what I understand...exo cages usually end up pushing into the body during flop overs or rollovers. I'm interested in seeing how you will mount it when you're ready to install it. What about wind noise? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Actually not so if it's braced right. You should really go over to the toyota forum on pirate for some great exocage tech. Those guys are doing it right and left and know their business. It's all in the right cross bracing and proper material. Look up Tin Bender over there, he's the guru and makes some badass cage designs.

    that would be cool... i know some cherokees that are really wanting to incorporate exo cages. I've seen one on a suburban made by randy ellis (very cool)

    I ran an exoskeloten for years and had great luck with it. I will see if I can come up with some older pics.
