Looks nice. Going to move the gas tank up at all or have you had good luck with not smashing the :pokinit: out of it.  Also did you have to splice the cab hoop together.

I'm going to move the filler up and forward to avoid tearing it off. I had to splice the hoop together. They provide a 7" slug. I figured it should be plenty strong. They will make a one piece, but apparently don't order tube long enough unless you ask.

I wish there was a gas tank skid plate kit out there. Mine has taken a few hits. Nothing to bad but I'm sure it's only a matter of time. The original factory skid plate is not up to the challenge.

Mine doesn't seem to be hitting. Maybe you just need bigger meats.

Didn't know you can get shorter than 20' sticks unless you paid and asked for them to cut them down.

Would X it or at least add one diagonal tub. My inner cage is a little tweaked but it's been used more than once. :greengrin:
