Works fine right up until you drop a 4000 pound rig off a 15 ft waterfall backwards and it lands sideways on the front clip.

So di dwe ever get to see the finished product of this excellent fab shop, very curious as to how and what you do to stretch the drive 10".

That cage was a work of art, and you are spot on wearing the brain bucket. Not worth building a cage hust to bang your head on it.

the stretch was easy (joe at Absolute Offroad off road finished that in a few days work). fixing the frame, new axle housings, tub mounts, additional tube work and all of the other stuff was the hard part.
