    In light/contrast of the engine cage thread, could you guys please volunteer your bedcage pics and tire carrier pics for those of us aspiring to the LT route :eek:

    edit: could you also mention what size shocks you guys are running with the bedcage?

    Nice looking cage! 2 questions, is it bolt in and did you build it yourself?

    Well done, much nicer than paying $1,800 for the Giant bolt in cage.

    Thanks and plus the Giant one runs straight across at the from bed bolts so you lose 5" or so of space.

    Thank you sir.

    Bolt in cage > weld in? You bed is stuck to your truck if you weld a cage in but it's stronger to weld it in ya? That's my impression :notsure:

    Best of both worlds. Welded to the frame, bolted to the bed. I can still remove the bed if needed. DMZ springs with 16 shocks.
