I am wanting to put a cage in my trail truck this winter and wondering how much tube that I will need to get. The truck is a older blazer that I am puting a truck cab on. I would like to do a 6 point with shock hopes ft and rear. Nothing to fancy just want to keep my ***** safe.

shock hopes????lol :) get a tape and measure depends on how many bars ur going to put in there. at least 100' i would use 2" on the main cage and some 1.75 for shock hoops and whatnot.

Hey Todd,

Lay it all out with masking tape first then measure it all out. Depending on how fancy you get with the truck I would guess between 100-200 feet. Ditto on the 2" main bars and 1.75 for everything else. That is how my Bronco is laid out.

Have not gotten that far yet, getting stuff together for a winter project. Winter is my slow time at work. Need to have something to keep me out of trouble.

ice fishing starts trouble, first your on ice with your truck, 2nd you start talking about crandon, and then you see who can get back to shore the quickest against your buddies.

Not to much into ice fishing, I find it kind of borring to stare down a hole wating for a fish to come by. My 4x4 club does put on a few ice races each year that I some times join in :cool: Last year I raced my crew cab 2wd dully :eek:
