    My main interest is in how you guys running cages tied the cage to the frame. If you have pics or links to cage pics, post them up. I want to start bending my tube ASAP. Thanks.

    The reason why I need to start bending my tube up. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    holy freakin half a blazer Batman, what was that???I'm not gonna tie mine in due to the stiffening effect it has. I need all the flex I can get, even at the expense of breakage. I've seen other guy's just measure from the center of where the cage bolts to the floor to the frame, and cut a piece of tube that long grind to fit add pieces of plate on bothends and weld, then bolt, or weld to frame if desired. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    There are some pictures in my webshots album of what I did. I tied the 6 mounting points in to the sliders and rear bumper and then to the frame through polyurethane bushings. It did stiffen the body up somewhat.
