What size body lift are you running? I just bought that same bumper and it's for a 2" body lift.

Sadly its a 3". I wish i didnt have one at all but it was already too late to take it off with the body armor tucked up so close to the body. Im glad i had one when i did the flatbelly and my truck dosent sit too tall so its cool.

Wow!! Is that for 1.75"  x .120 DOM? And how many feet did you calculate?
 
My entire cage took about 140 feet of HREW and that cost me about 240$ and the bender was about 130$ because 5 people went in on it.

What parts are you waiting for? I didnt see you at the last roundup but i should this time. My rig is still down because my steering box i rebuilt and tapped is no good anymore. So i have to do it all over again.

was waiting on link parts from Ballistic (joints brackets etc) they finally came today so I'm back in the game

I got it all through my work. The HREW is great, it just dents easier than DOM. I have a couple dents here and there, mostly on the rocker guards. If your building a cage i recommend DOM just for main supports and use HREW for everything else. How much was it per foot?

Nope. I didnt want to put that much into each foot i use considering its my first cage and i knew i would have mess-ups. From my work its about 4-5$ a foot i think for DOM
