I know the look you want . I loved it other day when I took mine to walmart guy in front of me on bike was looking all over trying to figure out where the noise was coming from . He must not of thought it could come from the ranger because he was totally shocked when I went around him in the turn lane .

OK here is some pics of the unfinshed cage still have to weld it all up leaving the rear bars off until we pull the cab off so I can weld all the way aroung the joints so I can make sure they are welded good and get them painted except where the rear bars connect.

Looks great , was the cage prenotched or did you have to do it all yourself ? I am sure there was some trimming but , I wonder if it was closer than my jegs kit I used in my 86 .

Yes it was notched on one end but when I told him what I was going to do he made the bars alittle longer so I could costume fit them the way I wanted them but it turned out they could have been shorter with me lowering the cab. I have no complates on them and they are very affordable and answered all my ?s I had and he told me how he was going to do them

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.
