I am looking for suggestions and pictures showing what some of you did when cutting through your cab to attach your cabcage to your rear shock hoop/bedcage? Pictures of the work and what you did to keep water out. Thanks!

I used an aluminum silicon (that works just as good on steel) to go in the gaps between the cage and cab. no leaks, no rust.

Champagne taste on a beer budget!

depends on how fancy you want to get, you could do the cheap and easy go through the window and put in "wheather tight" plexi glass or you could do this

Depending on whether or not the cage and cab are solid mounted to the frame, you could cut out a piece of thin steel and fill the gap, then TIG weld it to the cab and tube with silicone bronze rod. The silicone bronce rod will allow for a LITTLE BIT of flex that the body will have. BUT your cab needs to be solid mounted to the frame to do this or it will just crack. To do this method your cage needs to be welded to the cab and the frame, and the cab is solid mounted (NO stock rubber body mounts). If your cage is just wleded to the cab, or if it is on bushings, or if you still have rubber body mounts you will have too much flex and will crack this setup. Steve
