    I just got a rollcage built for the 76. I did a full convertible conversion.

    I'm looking for one for my 76 Blazer that I made a full -convertible if I decide to keep it.

    Round Rock, Texas I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.rocko.rockcrawler.com>www.rocko.rockcrawler.com</a>

    How about some specs: type of tubing, size, wall thickness etc...?

    the people that made the painless wiring jeep are doing the rollcage, they are called Custom Jeep (www.customjeep.com). Id rather not say how much i spent on it. However their work is very professional. As for specs, all i know right now is that its 3in tubing, i dont know wall thickness.

    hey guy, that looks nice. Like the full convertible conversion too. Where did you cut at in relation to the winshield? Mine's coming off tommorrow. The cage looks a little similar to what i'm doing too. Full family style. Nice work.

    What kind of bender are they using? It looks like it is necking down the tube quite a bit, like an exhaust bender does, especially in the 3rd shot.
