after tons and tons of grinding and welding, we finally started working on the cage this weekend

We got the majority of the time consuming pieces done. The passenger's upper portion is done also, just didn't get it mocked in for the pic before it started raining.

Got sandwich plates drawn up along with "A" pillar tie ins. We will get those cut out this week

Picked up a set of used tires for the Jeep. One is brand new and the others have 70% or more tread! Also picked up our plates fresh off the plasma table. Cleaned up the floor where they will go and burned the rears into place. Got a little more work done to the cage including bending the rear portions. They just need to be trimmed to fit

Modified our fuel cell mount a little and welded the base to our floor plates. The fuel cell should slide right out the back once everything is said and done. Also got the front axle. Custom 9" housing built to old Dodge kingpin specs but driver's drop with Solid inner C's. This should fit the Yukon shafts I had already bought and we will be able to use all of the same outers we had already planned on using.

Spent most of the weekend working on the cage. I had to take apart the majority of it to get the C pillars slid over the sleeves and in place. I then reassembled everything and got it tacked again. Finished all of the main structure and started making all of the supporting tubes. This is where I stopped when my 2" hole saw got destroyed.

Had very limited time to work on the Jeep this weekend. I also fried my chopsaw blade and made all of my cuts with a grinder LOL. But it is starting to look like a race Jeep now. Good news is the house inspection for refinancing is today, so we should be able to dedicate way more time to the Jeep only now.

A few more brace bars and some gussets and call it done.

This is the first time I have ever bent roof tubes down to meet the front A pillar. It was a huge pain in the a**. It looks good though. Once I get clarification from Ultra 4 tech, I am going to start on the rockers.
