    Do you guys think it is dumb for me to order a cage when I have all the equipment to build my own? The only reason I am thinking of ordering one is my time and patience right now is so limited. I can order a 10 point 1.75 x.120 wall cage from S&W for $450, that is about what I would spend in tube alone.

    I guess the question you should ask yourself is, are the S&Ws built the way you want it to be? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
    Personally, I enjoy the build process as well, but time for me is a rarity now-a-days, so I'm holding off till next year or so...but that's just me...

    That same thought has crossed my mind. I really want to keep weight down so I want to use moly tube but getting the time to build a cage is hard to do. Hell finding time to wheel is hard enough right now let alone building the truck. I have my crossover and hydro assist sitting here since Sept. of last year and still don't have it installed. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Boss, wait until you see the two trails we went to last time. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif The one trail I passed on because there was about an 80% chance I would roll; to the left was a light roll and to the right was easily a full roll over landing back on the wheels type of roll. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think it is time for me to just /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif!
