    All the tubes go through a plate then through the floor. The cage was tilted forward and lowered to be able to get all the way around the tubes. Then its was raised and the plates welded into into place. He had a problem tilting it enough with the top tubes going out of the cab and had to cut them off and get creative.

    Thanks, Nah its acutally down here at a buddies shop http://www.halosupercars.com/web/

    This way if I actually ever have time I can have a hand in it. Ive been to busy at work to actually do much but stop in and talk through design, but Matt you know what thats like these days also.

    Should be headed to Lenger in a few weeks to throw the truck on the dyno and work on a tune.

    I hear ya man. Although I found out if you injur yourself you get forced into a slowdown at work. It's been a quiet week!

    Maybe I'll swing by Lenger when you go there seeing it's only a few miles up the highway.

    Alittle update. Cage phase 1 is done and I have the truck back at my house a few weeks ago to get stuff ready for the front portion of the cage. I have alot of wire cleanup/ rewiring to do under the dash.

    Went to Lenger today and put the truck on his dyno. We were able to pickup 10 horse and and much smoother power delivery. Huge improvement on the road, now just need to see the difference in the dunes.

    I'm not sure. Just call URD http://www.urdusa.com/ they can probably point you in the right direction.
