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.

Unfortunately Ben did an ENDO in his rig the first trail he had it out after the cage. Cage did its job and kept him safe, but he bent the hell out of his frame. It's currently undergoing a frame straightening and addition of new motor mounts, etc... Then it's going back to the fab shop to redo the front tube work before the stretch goes on.

that looks good. I'd put an X vertically behind the front seats though. In a roll over it keeps the b piller from collapsing. And instead of straight front to back bars consider X or triangles overhead of the driver and passanger... similar to how you show for the rear passangers.

Youve got good skills, I didn't have any cad tools and wouldn't know how to use them if I did. I just sketched and talked with Hunter, the guy who did my work, and he took it from there.

bardenk1 kinda like this... the skinny red lines represent the 3/16 plate gussets

edit: wont upload sorry ill get it tomorrow
11-04-2008 11:07 PM
bardenk1 i know my cage design shows no bends but i was wondering if i were to design gussets for every joint would my cage still be good as far as strength is concerned? i would like to try and design one that works with minimal bends because i don't have any access to a bender but a chop saw is 125 at my local tractor supply i was thinking about 1 3/4 dom gussets (out of 3/16 plate) if need be everywhere and adding a rear bar across the back similar to the front harness restraints and two either 3/4 or 1 inch dom tubes angled at like 105 degrees and 75 degrees for that extra little bit and asthetics on the frontgoing from the dash bar to the top of the a pillar
11-04-2008 09:26 PM
GrnTJ lmao, you sound like me when I was in my design class last year bardenk. I designed a hawse fairlead, full long arms, belly up skid, gas tank skid, and some other stuff. I dont remeber it all but when I was bored Id just go to town on what was in my head.

The cage came out so sweet, figures you'd test it though. Cant wait to see how the stretch works!

11-04-2008 02:11 PM
ygohome Yeah, the stretch wouldve helped alot. I need to get the front tube work all cut off, its twisted pretty good. The radiater hoop did its job though, was able to finish the trail in the jeep no problem.

the frame is bent in the front about 6+ inches to the left. Going to have to get that straigtend. I'll just ditch the grill, front fenders, and maybe the hood too. Hunter will tube it similar to how Joe Daro's and Hackles jeeps are in the front, without fenders... THEN the stretch goes on. in another 3 months I'll get to try it again

The helmet works great. I bought two over at the local sporting store. $25 each I think. A good inexpensive investment. And if you do something stupid like roll or flop, people will still say you were smart enough to wear the brain bucket
11-03-2008 10:22 PM
Scout That's pretty cool. I bet that stretch would have helped...
11-03-2008 09:51 PM
AzTJ You just HAD to test it out didn't you.

Looks awesome Ben. Hows the helmet working?
11-03-2008 02:18 PM
wavebacktothetj ouch! well I suppose it was bound to happen
11-03-2008 01:56 PM
4point Wow, you didn't waste any time on testing it out.

ygohome it works!

wavebacktothetj WOW! did you poop a virgin cause that sh*t is tight.

AzTJ That is one of the sickest cages I've seen.

HunterOffroad hands down FTW!
