    I'm trying to figure out approximately how many feet of tubing it would take and come up with a price. This applies mainly to the full/family type cage on a K5.

    Thanks

    I haven't done one yet, but from what I have heard.. You'll be loooking at somewhere around 120-150ft.+/- of tubing depending on your cage style. I think that s about what I calculated when I was going to put one in my 86..

    I am just under 100 ft. But I don't have the full rear portion like tRusty. Mine is a basic 6 point 2 passenger. I am going to re-do the back half soon to be similar to the design fox, tRusty, Baddog, and some of the other full halo guys.
