    Here is the rear half of my cage. The front half is a Smittybuilt weld in kit with a couple front to back spreaders added in between the windshield bar and the b-pillar bar. I am going to add in door bars, more gusseting, and a rear downbar to the fenderwell to get some more points of contact and more strength soon.

    I have three complete cage buildups in my photo gallery....one for a '70, one for a '77 and one for an '86.


    The '86 one has an interesting set of front bars. They stay as close as possible to the A-pillar area as possible, and they don't block the glovebox door at all. Took me a long time to figure out, but there are probably some ideas there if you study the pics for a while.

    Just click on the link in my .sig

    here is my windshield dash bar. There are some spreaders along the roof that I added after this pic was taken.

    This is my cage at 2 different stages. The rear was done first, then I rolled it, cut the top off, and did the front part. The front is part Smittybuilt kit from about 15 years ago, and the rest is homemade.
