    Looks great! Are you planning to put any plate over the tubing running from the frame to the rockers?

    Yeah I'm going to tie the rollcage into the rock sliders and then cover it in 3/16" or 1/4" plate steel.

    Looks good! I like the idea of chopping the rockers and nixing the box under the floor (not sure if the 1st gens have the same box as my '74 does- but I like it!)
    - you've got me thinking now.
