    I have been looking for someone to build me a cage and I think we live in the same area. Was it a shop that you talked to?

    That's a good price. Most places around here (race car fab shops) quoted me $12-1500. I might be interested in this guy doing a cage for me.

    Dan, try to get some pics of his work if you can. I'm seriously interested. Sounds like he has skills if he's building whole frames.

    Yep, We took his cab down there last night. But he wasn't there I went back to meet him today.. He built the rollcage in the flatbed out at JJ house.. He wants $650.00 for the full cage for the Jimmy.. And $350.00 for the cage like yours for my Blazer.. I saw the cage he built for his Jeep to.. He does nice work...Dan
