Yup, this is the direction I am going to go then. What size tubing were you able to fit in the tunnel for the rear bar, see any issues with 1.5?In my cages I ran a floor bar from a pillar to b. I then run tube from driver side to passenger. I am able to sink the rear seat tube halfway into the trans tunnel without hitting the trans because the trans gets small back there. The front tube either bend to clear the tunnel or just plate and weld to the tunnel. Rear seat bar takes most of the weight.
Coming out here, I’d highly advise keeping the factory mechanical fan. Electric will never flow the cfm that factory fan flows, hence why it’s so loudTruck is still going strong!
The cage is leaking a bit at the firewall, so I have to rip out a moldy carpet. Due to that I have been brainstorming ideas, but I think I’ll end up just putting a stock carpet back in.
Also planning a trip to Arizona this coming summer to wheel in the Superstition Mountains and the Apache trial because my grandmother just bought a house out there. I’ll probably drive it down to BAJA afterwards.
Since it’ll be around a 5,000 mile trip I’ll be putting a bunch of time and money into it in the next six months.
My list as of now:
1. Bumper! (Buying a bender finally)
2. AC, it’s 100+ degrees in Arizona when I’ll be going
3. New shock hoops
4. Electric cooling fan, the Toyota one is loud as shit
All these little projects should be easy and provide a lot of function. The trucks been getting a bit neglected due school, me picking up an e46 M3 that needed some work, and working part time for a spec e46 racing team.. I’m pretty motivated for this summer trip so hopefully I’ll have a real update soon.
Pics of m3 since it’s taken time and money from chuck
