Ok, show me your favorite cage designs (links/pics preferred). I've got to finalize the design of mine so I can start on it soon and I'm looking for as many ideas as possible. Basically what I need is a Blazer size "family" cage. This will be my very first cage so it needs to avoid complex multi-plane bends as much as possible. I'm not completely sold on "front loop" vs. "halo" vs. "up and back" a-pillar designs. Seems like "up and back" (up the a-pillar along the cowl, bend and along the windshield post, bend and back to the b-pillar with a spreader across the dash area and the top of the windshield) is probably the easiest to get right for a bending newbie. I also need ideas for the tail end. I'm thinking about essentially a tube outline roughly in the shape of the back of MoneyPit. Up over the tires and straight back. I'm thinking I'll then hull out the bed sides I have for the outer sheet metal and screw that into the inside of the bars. Basically keep as much of the GM lines as possible, but still be lighter, stronger, and narrower than factory. I guess it will look sort of like an exo. I'll probably decide it's too much work and just leave it open or use sheet to fill between the lines... I've also seen some of you guys with things like cooler shelves and such on the back. I like that but, I just want a flexible design that gives me as many options as possible and keeps the weight low while being strong. Here is my rig now. Only real difference is that it now has a rear floor made from the floor of the original bed mounted (or rather soon to be) on rubber isolators (body mounts). Is that enough rambling for now? Maybe that will give you some idea of what I'm looking for. Maybe I'll make more sense tomorrow when I'm not so tired or in a hurry... Any suggestions or cage building information appreciated.
