Well got the cage tacked together all but the rear bars leaving them off until I get the cab off and back on pulling the cab off for I can get a good weld all the way around the joints here are some pics of the unfinished cage.

Got the front end bolted back I had to notch the grill alittle on the back side for it to fit around the front bars it would have been fine if I hadn't lowered the cab.The front bumper was the hardest had to drop the brackets the hold the bumper on, getting them lined up and getting it tack for I could weld it.I can have the front clip off in less than 5 mins.4 hood bolts, 8 fender bolts and 4 bumper bolts and set it off. The bumper the way I got it set up it don't have to come off to take the fenders and grill off the truck.It only takes a 5/16 ,two 1/2s for the fenders and grill, 17mm for bumper.On the carb I can run a 1" spacer if I need to with a 1" spacer I will have only 1/2" to 3/4" to the hood clearance, rad has about 1" clearance on it.Heres some pics.

that explains where the 2 extra bars go thank for point it out, got to cut the lip off right beside the red line you put right inside the door jamb just hadn't did it but I was cutting it to get the cab off to paint and finish welding the bar.but it will have to be out of the way for the bar now I was looking at it last night in the shop and something just didn't look right to me it the missing rocker bars . they had what the bars was wrote on duck tape most of the writing was rubed of in shipping so it was like jigsaw puzzle trying to figure out where each on went and this my first roll cage helped with rick's but didn't know a hole lot about it.
Thank again for pointing out to me do you see anything else if you do let me now this is my first and still learning.
Thanks Jim

got alittle done this weekend just getting over the flu boy it takes longer to get over the older you get got the skin hung and the tailgate on, but got to finish some more bracing to put on. Making it so I can pull it all together if I need to do anything to the rear like swap gears or anything like that.I will post some pics later in the week when finished with the bracing.

Northwest sorry about coming off alittle hateful on the ripple ? should not have put it that way. I know where you was coming from and was not feeling real good and took the ? the wrong way. It not as bad as it looks in the pic maybe it will be ok I know I should have had another one bent for it but. Thanks for pointing out the rocker bar, it will be challage to put in now with the x bracing at the bottom. Would it work if I put it from tubing to tubing where the cage is connected or do I need to cut the angle to go under the x bracing at the bottom.An again sorry about coming off the way I don't know if you seen it or not but that is why I went back and deleted it.I try my best not to be like that when I do I want to make it right and don't mine admetting it out in the open like a man should.

Heres some pics I'm not finished but thats I am going to do until I get the 4 link and rearend under it I still have to do some drilling holer to bolt it to the frame. I will be addins a couple more down the sides but don't want to get any in the way when we start doing the 4 link under it.I have 18" from fender lip to the frame at the top and 14" on the sides so i should be ok if I want to go big tires more than likely going 29"x10.5x15 0r a 30".The tailgate works good the way I got it mounted I wasn't sure if it was going to work right with out some more bracing but it works find the way I got it now.Time I finsh with the back it will way around 200# with the metal in the back .030 smooth alum.
