I may be confused. Why didn’t you want the frame kick to start after the rear of the cab?

To do it that way I would have had to pie cut, bend, and weld the frame, however I have an aversion to welding directly on the frame on this truck so this method was what I came up with.

How are you going to attach the cage? Bolt it on?

Frame is indeed coated with poison, but it has a 70 year service life. Tired of breathing in garbage paint fumes for garbage durability.

Doing solid mounted but bolt on engine cage and bed cage, however, the cab cage will be on poly bushings.

Rivets sort of, just not ones from 1200 B.C.

Hmm, those look similar to hi-loks from the aircraft world. Exact same use case as rivets, just much easier to install (and more expensive obviously).
