Finally pulled the trigger on a new cage. I have been looking at different fab shops, talking to them, looking at their work, looking at other peoples cages asking questions how they like them, inspecting the welds and how their notched and so forth for the last 8 months. I looked at using this fab shop over and over again and just was not sure.... I tried to find another shop to change my mind, after talking to most of the big name fab guys I just wasn't happy. Most of them build good stuff but are charging allot of money. The major criteria of mine was based upon price. Now I'm sure that I'll get flamed for my hang-up on price but....... :popcorn:

I go the the Sand Show and finally getting a chance to really inspect their work and talk to them, I'm pulling the trigger! Taking the Ole girl up to them on Friday. I'll post pic's in about 2 weeks once their done. YES this is long winded but now that I've posted this there's no turnng back...:rofl3:

Jimbo is one kewl dude, his work in impeccable and his price is where it should be with the current times.

Very cool....are you building it to SCORE/BITD specs?

What are you using/building for the rear lights?


I'm halfway over the fence about whether to race our 4. Have the new cage already....All the belts, helmets, etc. are up to snuff.

Might just start our at the Sportsman UTV/SR1 class. There is a Powder Puff coming up in Barstow that my daughter wants to try and make.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. :ride:

LOL! I was talking just about the cage. Not really going to have the frame worked on (yet). Once I get a turbo then I'll have the frame strengthened to help with the twisting and flex...

Sorry about misleading you....:pint:
Chop.

No, didn't mislead me...I was asking about the cage, not the frame.

But if you are going the turbo route you probably aren't thinking about racing anyway...my mistake.

Still like to see new builds though. :ride:


Hope it comes out great!

do you have a pic as a example? interested in seeing what the cage looks like
IT's a pretty busy picture. I'm going for a little less radius to the cage but his welding is what I like. Plus if you look at the rhino and Terex forums he has allot of cages out there. His front bumper is phat!

I saw this Rzr 4 at SSSS as well and inspected his work very thoroughly...There was 1/4 to 1/2 inch gaps where the cage bungs meet. Be sure to inspect it when you pick it up.

WOW, Really? Didnt see it. I've inspected prolly 5 of their cages and 1 sand car. I saw nothing that looked like that. Every weld and knotch were clean. PC was great, I just don't know what you saw. BUT I'll be sure to check. Thanks for the heads up.
