    The frame looks like it was worth it alone. What brand and model is the cab?

    The chassis is definelty worth it it's a proline jeep comanche cab it's been discontinued for bout 3 years now so I've been searching for one proline does still make comanche but it's full truck with bed now so if worse comes to worse I guess I'll just buy full body an find someone or just cut and fabricate myself

    Ty there's actually few other adjustments bein made to chassis also I have to have one brace rewelded, one if the front shock hoops relocated it's just bout 1/8" out of line of other one so it's throwing font axle off, and rear shock hoops being lowered so I can run diamond plate across the back so I figured why not redo cage also

    Do you have to cut off those welded parts and make new ones, or can they be un-welded?

    Welding is something I've never learned yet but always thought would come in handy.

    That seems like a lot of gas to solder/braze those two pieces together. Maybe because it was pretty thick steel. I suppose you could get a 1:10 scale RC roll cage or tube frame to heat up faster.

    How thick is the metal rod used on your tuber frame?
