    Carroll's Rod & Racecraft in Spotswood, NJ can fabricate anything. They've built a pile of rock crawlers and I had them handle all the fabrication on my truck.

    What are you looking to build?

    Yeah, that's me. And thanks. :)

    The body mounts, flatbed, bumper, internal cage, etc. would be no problem for them. At this point they're intimately familiar with the 05+ trucks. My cage is 2" chromoly due to SCORE requirements, but with smaller diameter tubing they'll be able to get a even tighter fit in an access cab.

    Other shops actually outsource fabrication and rollcage work to these guys. They also have a waterjet on site so if you've got any funky designs you'd like cut into the metal, they can set that up.

    Give Bob a call at 732-416-9887 before you're ready to have the work done. They've got a few projects going on right now but they should be able to squeeze you into the schedule for the body mount work. :thumbsup:

    A common question. :p It's surprisingly easy. It's still a door slammer and the side bars just about follow the lines of the new seats so it's not much of a stretch.

    I was shocked by how comfortable the truck still is -- those angled tubes don't get in the way at all...once your feet are inside. ;)

    thanks man!

    No problem! I stopped by the shop today to BS and discuss what I saw at the race in Mexico. Bob stopped in the middle of the conversation to take a walk outside and check under my truck. What you're looking for should be no problem at all! :)

    awesome! Hey, if you dont mind my asking, what does a cage similar to what you have run? I dont need exact figures, but a ballpark would do... Ive been planning a lot for my truck, and an internal/bedcage is high on my list

    Mine's overkill due to SCORE requirements. 2" .120 wall chromoly plus all of the joints are gusseted. I have about $5000 in materials alone.

    Mild steel, smaller diameter tubing, and no gussets will make for a very affordable, incredibly strong cage. Bob's welds are a thing of beauty; the gussets are only to satisfy SCORE tech.

    You'll pay straight time + materials. Every one of these cages is custom built but he'll be able to give you a solid estimate when you talk to him.

    Let me know if/when you'll be stopping by the shop. I'd like to swing by and see what you've got planned!

    Rear will be a spring-under conversion, but class 7sx rules require that I keep the stock lower control arms so no LT for me.

    I do have some tricks lined up to increase durability, but I'll wait until they're done to post details. ;)
