    That thing was still running the factory leather seats. Who's site is that? I didn't get to see him run the course. Rocks are still dry so it was mid morning. They probably ran about the time I went back for windows. Most of those pictures were taken from about the same place I was standing most of the day.

    no interior cage makes in a non-issue, IMHO.

    EXO's are not a subsitute for true cages.

    i think he did an exo to help out the body and give it a frame to attach to... those things are unibody so when he took the doors out he lost all hope of having rigidity in his rig unless he did what he did... i think he did a nice job overall... sweet rig for a heep /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    First time I saw that truck it still had doors. It was pretty clean at that point. It has a few hits in the body though. It works really well the little that I have seen it.

    I'm with you Zakk......that cage looks to be more "show" than go.....safety-wise.

    There is nothing there to triangulate the exocage that I can see. It would have been nice to see some bars going diagonally through those doors openings to the opposite side.....

    Wouldn't pass the "pipecleaner-push-on-it-with-your-finger" test at all!!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    not in a million years!

    looking cool is one thing, having the vehcile perpared for a roll is quite another.

    There was a goofball over on the PBB, and he a stock "hoop" on his Sammy. he explained that while it is not safe, it looks cool and he is a good driver /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    There was also a pic of it almost on its side on a ledge with a passanger /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
