alright heres what i have, its a 1991 mazda navajo, (basically explorer sport) its 2 door with a 5 speed and 4.0 everything runs super strong and good, but i have a set of bucket seats and fuel cell that needs to go in it. Its already caged, but its not to the frame, just welded to the cab. before i mount the fuel cell and bucket seats i want a more extensive cage to the frame. now here are my options, and i think im gonna leave it to DR to decide. do i just build off of this cage to the frame and tie it all together or rip it all out and start over. some of the factors against building off this cage is that its only 1 1/2 and its not very tight to the cab. other than that here are some pics of the 4x front end thats widened 3" per side, double shocked, and coils on a custom adjuster..













heres the new autolocking dixi hubs:D



eventually its gonna be a full build, i also plan on mountin some bypasses i have lying around..

keep the stock dash and build a center console that has a space for a race radio and make it so the center console meets where the ciggarette lighter is and thegps mounts where the ciggarette lighter was. if it doesnt make sense i will draw it in paint
