    First step to getting the bed cage done. This will be the skeleton of the cage, what do yall think?
    The frame is now boxed from the cab back as well for strength.

    It is very ghetto with the tail lights lol i think i may pull the trigger on BajaDesign RTL-S bar

    A few more bars will be added in, some on sides for strength and build out to mount bypasses.

    I dont think I'm going to have it shipped to Guam, I will be stateside in November so if I go with glass it'll be around then.

    So unfortunately, Baja Designs wont ship to my address so I went with an Amazon chase light for $100 and I have no complaints so far. This is how the rear end is sitting now, more to come shortly.

    Now, to beef up all the bars and everything inside this is what I think I will be doing.
    Do you see anywhere I will need more bars for strength.
    Here are some more terrible photoshop photos:anonymous:

    In the back left corner, next to the wall, I will be putting my fuel cell
    https://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/rci-2171a/overview/

    Right corner, trying to find a Co2 On-board air system
    (Link place holder)

    In front of those two iteams and up against the X bars in the middle, a husky box for some storage
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-32-in-x-19-in-Portable-Storage-Chest-32R-OS/300748555

    then in front of the X bars, I'll be mounting two 37 in spares standing up:thumbsup:

    Hoping my weight wont be unbalanced with the fuel cell since the stock tank is already on that side?
