Bed cage costs

Just wondering what people paid to have ther bedcages built? If you built it yourself how much do you think you have in materials. My truck should be headed out soon for a bedcage/ rollbar combo but not really sure what its going to cost. Having a hard time justifying when I really have no idea what the end result will be.

Thanks everyone, Ive gotten lots of ideas of what I want from pics on TW.

They quoted me aprox $2500 (?) for fairly extensive amount of work, so I didn't think it was that bad.

I just dont want to end up paying the money and then wanting it different and changing it up myself. So that just got me wondering what other people pay?

I guess I should have asked also how much of the design was yours, and how much did the builder design?

I think that is average cost for most reputable places depending on the design.

Complexity and materials determine a lot of what you'll pay. As a reference point, Giant offers a bolt-in bed cage for $1850.

Camburg makes one that is made to have a rollcage biult into it. Powdercoated, spare tire holder, etc.

It's only 1500 bucks. It says they MIG weld it all together, but im not sure how they could ship something like that in one peice, so if you do need it shipped im sure youll have to do the wlelding yourself (They would probably peice it together to leave minimal work for you.)

Only problem is that your box would be overtaken by this unit. Not that you want anything loose back there when your romping around, but if ur using ur truck as a DD, then its gonna take away alot of the usability of ur bed (I like to use my bed as much as I can Haha... yah i know, lame.)

Im kind of leery about the price, seems cheap, so I would hunt down some reviews on this unit. And who knows if camburg isnt hiding all knids of nasty price points; little extra for this/that option. This site would be a good place to start, i think. I can only see it as being a worth-while option (For me) if you were going to build a cage in your cab down the road. If not i would be happier with a more compact cage even if it cost me more.

Its on their website, under Suspension systems, Rear Suspension, Bed Cage.

Personally i agree with Mjp2 the Giant design is the closest pre-manufactured cage to my liking.

I put absolutely no bends when I designed my bed cage utilizing the key "triangulation" method and tied it into my cab cage eventually. If I were you, I would buy a welder, chop saw, grinder, bender and start learning something new. All this depends on what you have in mind for using the truck for and carrying in the bed too.

$2500 may be the going rate but damn thats a lot for just the bedcage. I would agree with above and try it yourself if you have any fab skills. I am going to be under $2500 for my entire rear end including shocks, leafs, hangers, shackles, steel etc etc

explain the "extensive amount of work"...2500 for a bedcage alone is stupid. imo..now if that includes all the SUA work then thats closer

I wasnt trying to start arguments on who paid to much or looking for cheaper options. I was honestly just trying to establish a baseline.

I have all tools needed to build my own except for a bender. Just not sure I will have the time to tackle the project. I even have a plan with no bends minus the rollbar.

The extensive amount of work is a rollbar / bedcage/ mount my bypasses/ tire carriers. Also going to be making and setting up 12" shackles over the frame. We talked about some other stuff but not really sure if that is part of the plan (will finalize when drop off the truck).

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

It just really shows that prices are varied and there are a lot of factors. If its a reputable shop, and they are setting everything up, including shackles, $2500 is not a bad price at all. If time permits, do it yourself and you can get a bender and still pay less than half that

I would consider his location to be a factor aswell, SoCal is full of fabricators that compete im prices to attract customers.
