I have been planning on doing a partial front and rear exo cage with a full interior rollcage. It would make things easier if I tied them together but am unsure of how that would affect the body flex, etc.

So then I though about a complete exo cage, leaving the body free. But in a bad rollover I would not want the body to break free and squish me into the cage.

So, right now I'm looking at a separate exo system and a roll cage that are not connected. I would like to connect it all though.

Any Thoughts on this? Thanks.

I don't know why you would want both Matt, you just adding all the weight back you got rid of. I'm gong the exo route my self. You would have to have a really bad roll to get the body to seperate from the frame. Normally we don't those in crawling normally just a flop.

That is a good point.

Who is that person that hooked you and Brant up on the bumpers and bars. What does he charge?

His name is Steve, He is a member of Snake River. I'm not sure as to how much he would charge ya. I'm sure it would be pretty inexpensive compared to others. I can give ya his number if ya want. He has a shop in rigby.

I gave him a call and he is the man! :thumb:

I'm going to have him do my cage, seat setup, front and rear bumpers, and side protection.

Thanks for the info. :mrgreen:

Its not important for the body to flex seperately from the chassis. Atleast, Nissan must not have thought so when they bought my Patrol... the body bushings is just a 1/8" piece of rubber... :roll:
