    I'm looking for ideas for a rear cage for the back of my k5 box only. I want it to fit under my top in the winter. Does anybody have any pics?

    Here is mine, I built it with the top on. I still have some triangulation I want to do to it.

    I built mine with the top on too, I also left a little room for my soft top rails.

    Only some of it got on my body, but thankfully I don't have a hootus. :haha:The rest got on the truck.

    Did the whole thing a couple of years ago. Holding up fine, it oxidizes over time but scrubs off for the most part. Nothing scratches it, no one leans on it in parking lots and no smart aleck kids hang off it. It's indestructible as far as I can tell. The hood lightened up more than the rest, but I don't care. I could always roller on another coat if I had the inclination.
