    Here's a couple. Just quickly looking at it in my rig it looks like the pillars would be just a little farther forward than the air duct opening. Maybe by about half a tube diameter.

    Can you still open your glovebox? Kind of looks like you can't in that 1st pic

    Yes but it requires trimming the side of the glove box off to clear. The internal side wall of the glove box does not start right at the edge of the box so there is room to trim the face so it will clear the cage but still be a functioning box. I'll be making a fill plate to cover the area soon. There is simply no way around this. We spent a fair amount of time trying to make it work.

    No one likes rolling their full body truck. This is for the unknown situation.

    All interior cages are for just that purpose, the what if it happens. Exo cages are for if you are basically going to roll on purpose.

    Couldn't sense the sarcasm?... Haha obviously kidding. It looks like a great product but my truck will never see that type of off-road situation. I like the factory look with the tubes.

    The videos were cool to watch, that must have been fun!

    What sort of testing have you done with the tube clamps in regards to strength?

    Sorry about all the questions, but I'm sure as you know building/choosing a cage is a pretty big decision and one that has a lot riding on it.

    The bolt together joints are stronger than the tubing itself. But if you're that worried about it, install a weld in only cage.
