    Yahhhooo!!!!!
    Well I got it. So far 120 ft. of finished product. It has 3 hoops (1 at the dash, 1 behind the drivers seat, & 1 at the tail gate.) 2 spreaders between 1&2 hoops, 2 spreaders & a diagonal between 2&3 hoops, 2 diagonals on the sides between 2&3 hoops. All of that tubing is 2" O/D .120 wall DOM. Then I have at 2&3 hoops at the base of the legs (going from side to side) & between hoops 1&2 at the door openings at the base, w/ the seats attached to the cage by tubing. And a cross bar at the top of the dash, and 2 spreaders in the middle between hoops 1&2. This is all done in 1 1/2" .120 wall DOM. I'll Try to get some pic's posted tomorrow.

    Later Ed

    Special Thanks to Scott Ellinger @ Rockstomper. He does excellent work.

    Get use to the view.
    Because, if your not the LEAD DOG the view never changes.

    Sounds real nice. May I ask what it cost you and how long it took?
