    Well, now that my rig has finally come around, it's time to deal with an unsettling issue:
    -my cab is cracked from rear mount to rear mount and was 'fixed' with steal plating spanned between the two mounts on the top and bottom sides.
    It creeks sumptin terrible....painful.
    is there a way to build a tube that goes up from the frame and mounts to the cab, could turn into roll bar inside cab????? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    -i'm sorta getting despondent about it and thinking about finding a rolling blazer chassis w/ a decent body and just starting from the ground up (do the 52/56" spring swap i've wanted to do etc).

    I don't have a very clear image of how its "cracked". The way I am picturing it, I would spot well all along the crack itself. Then seam seal the crack so it doesn't allow moisture in. Then I'd patch over it with a good guage sheet. Best way? no, but it is what I'd do myself. As for cage, there are plenty of ways to tie a cage into the from and through the cab. I don't know pickups well enough to go into detail sorry.
