I pulled my dash loose and had to smash the heater duct a little on mine to get it all to fit.It looks good man we gotta hook up on the trail some time.I'll be at the king of hammers with the jeep.

Solid cage brother, looks good. What did you do for frame tie ins?

Rawkon 01-28-2012 01:20 AM

not done with the frame tie ins yet, ill most likely only tie in the A and B pillars since for the C i would need to re route the gas filler stuff.... just gonna plate the frame and run a tube or a bushing tube thing to the lower plate on the mottom side of the body. when i do all that ill need to setup the seats and door bars too.... freakin never ends lol

all done with 1.75 DOM .120 wall. with the exception of the lower winshield bar. that is witha piece . 1.5 dom .120.

Rawkon 01-28-2012 01:24 AM

its been tough getting it all done, we have been cagin an old bronco, long travel for a razr, plate work for a ranger, some other custom work and been working on the trophy truck all at the same time.
we thought we were doing good on the TT and robby G came down before he left to dakar and told us our front shock angle was to steap and our rear links were too long.... lol oh well back to more cutting and grinding lol

How do you have that spare mounted? Baja style carrier?

Rawkon 02-03-2012 10:40 AM

yes i haave the lod xtreme and the swing carrier started shaking like crazy, and i couldnt see behind me with the tire. soo based off of the lod bumper i built a new swing carrier.

simple basket with a resting tube on the tub. the tire is held with a 3 way beard strap.
