    Im looking for a pre fabbed cage to put in my 73 K 20 pickup. One pre cut bent and ready to be welded. I would like one where I wont have to tear up or re do the interior. Maybe something with the loop behind seat with bars going forward to top of windshield then down by dash. I would like to be able to still get in and out without climbing over bars. :confused:

    I just ordered the 8 point last week. Will post pics as soon as it comes in. I will also finish the rest out myself.

    I like the idea of using a prefabbed cage but I absolutely cant stand the front downtubes not going through the dash. Looks to me like people's knees would be getting constantly bashed on the bars while getting out of the rig.

    thats why I ordered the 8 point and I will build my own halo and down tubes in the front and will actually be cheaper that way than if I bought the 10 or 12 point.

    I like that idea even though it would be a heck of a lot of work to get it done that way. To be honest with you, the cage looks alot better going through the dash IMO.

    well, I got the main support hoop in tonight so now I gotta take it to the bender and make the halo and front supports. I took tons of pics but forgot the camera on the hood of the truck at the shop.
