    do the rails from the bed go through the cab? Or are those shackle and bushings bolted to the back of the cab?

    no prob. My plan is to continue the center console/ shifter area up to the dash bar and aluminum that too for my gauges and switches and run my case shifter off a cable shifter.

    I think it'd be even cooler if you were to put your rig's stock dash back in. Just cut notches in the dash so it'll fit around the cage.

    might have been an option but I didn't know the plasma cutter could turn OFF and I just kept cutting more and more. Now I have alot of little peices :crazy:

    That can be solved by going to the junkyard and getting a whole dash setup and putting it into your rig.

    I assume more tube is going to be going in the bed area? triangulation seems kinda nonexistant.

    Sharp taper job. Looks real clean. Are you going to taper the nerfbars to match?
