I think you should try and graft two of the brightest light into your hood with some pipe like I was talking to you about. That way the lights don't interfere with your line of sight down the hood and they are protected from trail debris. I would mount the others on your main bed hoop 2 pointed forward and two pointed back. Another idea would be build mounts close to where your side mirrors would be mounted. But they might like to grab branches and become a pain in the ***. Make your insets on the hood for the front two big enough to eventually mount a set of the big lightforce.

Your rig is looking sharp. I really like how the front clip is coming together. Got any tips for designing something like that for mine?

first take your time and think about what you want covered and what can stick out of the tube work. second get more tubing then you need by at least half there will always be mess ups some you might be able to reuse some you will not. third depending on how you are bending the tube. wright down your bending marks and how many pumps you did on each mark and weather or not you let the pressure off the bender to check fit (will help to duplicate bends for the other side). fourth i found that if i make a couple of different smaller pieces with different bends in them and then held them up to the truck it helped me understand what i needed to bend the pieces to and the notching .and the last is the less bends that you have to do in multiple plains the better even with writing down key marks and the number of pumps it gets hard to duplicate some pieces. this is my frist try at the stuff i'm sure that brook or johny wick could give you better ideas just saying the little that i learned hope it helps. i did not build this as a cage this is only for covering the engine and mybe help stoping the frame from twisting will have to see how it works out.

Oh keithy you are going to need a diesel motor in that to get all the extra weight rolling. LOL Hey is that tcase rubber mounted to the crossmember? You may want to think about bracing your tcase to your motor and tie in the trans to. This may help alleviate broken bellhousings. Not that thats ever happened to you. Anyways you have way too much time on your hands. But it is coming together rather nicely.

Oh and get ahold of me. I have a better idea on the intake thing than using the dakota lid. Next time I see you at my gas station ask me about it. It flows better and fits better. Lates looser.

Next year he is putting his Cadillac engine in. Right Kieth? I think the extra bracing under the Tcase and Trany is a good idea. I need to do the same thing under my Tcase. That Atlas weight a ton. Is this Bill Cody?

i pulled the truck into the shop today and took the shocks off and took them down to have them charged. got home and started on the lights because the lights have to fit before i start on the hood. anyhow a couple of pics of what i did tonight.just a test fit i think i will mount them abot 1/2in lower and of cours level them.

filed down the upper tender coils on both shocks (they were sticking)got the shocks remounted. should of had them charged before i got to this piont i think the truck is about 1in higher then before(i didn't measure before i took them off). and finished the mount for the lights cut the hole for the d-ring. tryed clocking the clutch lever on my winch. but only wanted to move it from 11 clock to 12 clock. nope have to go three bolt holes and that would move it to far.
