    It took me a while to finish it since I started so many other projects at the same time. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif But it is complete now.

    I'm still not sure if I will be putting a flat skid plate on the bottom since the tank is so far up. But I am goingto herculine the entire interior so that will be next. Here are a couple of pics. And the rest are in my album.

    This is the before pic. I didn't get a before pic of the underside but you've all seen it.

    And here are all the after shots.

    YUP!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Plus I plan on cutting the exhaust off and just having a turn down behind the muffler. That'll freee up a little more space too. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I can't stop looking at the roll cage. Did you build that yourself? I'm looking into getting one for mine.

    It was an Echobit cage that was slightly modified. I'll be adding on to it also. Mainly just the seat mounts and some crossbracing in the rear woth a tire mount. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks Burt, I'll have to think abou that a bit more. I'll proabably still do it since the current exhaust is all peiced toegther. PLus I plan on doing some work to the crossmember under the t-case so I may have to do some exhaust work anyways. I'll try it till then and if I don't like it I'll fix it all at once. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
