    Well, I hope it's decent enough to explain itself.

    Details -

    2 x 3 x .120 BTW

    I plan on tying the front cab mounts to the sliders also, with the cage sitting on top of that whole structure. Also in there will be a skidplate I haven't researched enough yet to design.

    The subframe will replace the body lift on the cab.

    The yet to be bumper will replace the body lift on the front clip.

    I will retain the stock bushings on everything.

    Not much to say, looks very similar to mine except I gutted the stock cab supports to fit the subframe in. I think it's a very good approach to safely mounting a cage, much better IMO than most "frame mounts"...
