    thanks :)

    i had the design somewhat in my head as to how i wanted it but no means of getting it done. so i got with an offroad fab shop here and together we came out with what you see.

    as far as the other specs just your normal 350, 700r and 208 case. axles are 35 splined D60 and 14ff with detroits and 5.13s. future plans are doubler with a 400 tranny and converting it to propane. later on swapping springs to the 52 - 56 combo.

    If you don't mind me asking how much did it run you.......and where can I get the blueprints.......unless you make them and sell them.

    Is there any way you could take some "detailed" pics of your rig and cage setup for me and send them to TB2Blazer@yahoo.com??? I would greatly appreciate it because I would like to do a setup similar to yours. Thanks.
