    Well, I used the search function and could not find any information on putting a roll cage in a standard pickup any advice would be appreciated.

    thanks

    the front is going to be the same as a k5 cage and just have X's behind the seats. search for k5 cages, that will give u a general idea.

    I've already did all the measurements, and the seats are going to stay in the same spotand I am ordering seat from Summit Racing. I had to make sure because 1 am 6'1" and i need all the room i can get. It may take me a little while to get started, I have to fab a crossmember for the T-Case first and work the floorpans a little. I will get some pics starting it all as soon as I can. This is going to be fun cause its my first full cage and besides saving my neck, its got to look good.

    I've got one pic and only one pic. The A pillar's go through the dash to floor plates. The angle door bars connect with the A pillars at the floor plate. Still have a few things to finish. It's tucked as close to the body as humanly possible[reads : pain in the a$$:haha:]

    What was your trick to welding between the bars and the body? At risk of sounding sick, yours looks much tighter than mine.:o

    Not sure if there is much of a trick other than having someone that is very talented with a welder.
