Here is a pic the morning after Trav. I used the highlift to raise the cage and cab back up to make it easier to get in and out. Dana has a pic or two before I pushed it back up. I will get them on here this evening.

I've been needing to redo the cage for a long time. It was originally built 10 years ago when I didnt know a quarter of what I do now. It was built to keep the cab off of trees and provide some protection in case of a soft roll. I always stayed away from things like Cream Puff and Little Jagger because of it.

It did its job this time but what integrity it had is now gone so it's time for a new one.


Glad y'all are ok. When I rolled mine, it was after I had the exo cutoff and had a internal cage put in, it didn't even bend the tubing, caved the passenger side a pillar and roof down to the cage. That's when the roof got cut off.

I am really considering cutting the roof off and doing something similar to what you have. I always liked the look of JD's truggy and I love the way your 1st gen looks. The weather proof part is the only thing holding me back. We like to wheel quite a bit in the colder weather and the wife needs to stay warm. She loves to wheel and she is great to have on trail but if she gets cold no one wants to be around her. :****:

I was able to get a few vids uploaded today. Tried to upload straight from my phone but didnt have any luck.



The orange truggy is running on kmcminn's old Dana 60. Worked great all weekend. This was his first time up the Waterfall. He replaced his old 10bolt front and we wont let him take the bypasses anymore. He even went through Lion's Den.

The Waterfall is considerably easier now that they pushed all the dirt up in front of it. When I first saw it on Friday the flat rock at the bottom wasn't even exposed and the hole on the left side was completely filled in.

Yeah the cold sucks, but if your heat still works, that would be alot better than no heat at all.

Nice Vids Beerj! That section around that tree is interesting to say the least. Saw you head up the trail head a few times but never got a chance to meet ya. Donnie stopped at Middle Fork for a few minutes to talk on Friday. Good seeing you! I'm loving the pedal extension on Amanda's new buggy!

Here is a video of Forbanger, JEC95, and myself getting our rigs through the "Squeeze" section of Lion's Den.

Yeah man, I feel like I always catch a glimpse of your rig in passing. You're usually in the cabins right? We've already got #4 reserved for next year so I'll likely see you then (and maybe even get to say hi, lol)

It was a great weekend. Met a few great people from here but clearly didn’t meet all that was there. Seen rigs in camp but wasn’t sure who to talk too. I’m not the type to just walk up to someone and say hey. I was in a sxs and some of ya might seem me. I was the great big guy riding this with my brother
It was good to meet you.
