    Hey guys here is a pic with my top off. the kids are glad they got thier jungle gym back!![​IMG]
    My question is, give me your opinions on how I should add a rear hoop to this cage??
    I was thinking of just adding a rear halo that comes around behind the rear seat and then have two 'legs' coming down on both sides near the rear seat.
    ALL opinions would be great!!

    That is made by Kayline http://www.kaylinetops.com
    I had to use a rear bumper from a 75K5 because of my body lift, the newer bumper has two rows of bolts and the top row gave me the 3" higher I needed for the bottom bracket.
    The gate is a little heavy when I swing it out and I don't think a 35" tire would fit without modifying the jerry can holders, other than that it's working out good!

    Hey Burt, cool truck! My kid loves playin' on the top when I have it off too! I would duplicate the front bar at the back, then add one bar on each side- horizontal to the truck- attaching the front to rear. I probably wouldn't add anymore angle legs down. Is that spare for drag racin'? [​IMG]

    Drag tire? No that`s a Super Slicker, and we have all owned one of these spares at one time or another. Hey Burt, keep up the good work. Your rig is a real sweetie.
