Cut 4.5" in the back and added a few braces. I'm 5'11" and have a roof that drops below the bars and there is still plenty of clearance. On the front, just did the typical layout and added a bung to mount my mirror instead of using a strap.

Do you have any other pics from the side and or rear?

I really like the way that turned out man. You said your 5'11" how much head room do you still have?

Thanks. Yep...I always wear a helmet and even with the roof an inch or so below the bars, there is more than enough room. I'll try to get a picture with the roof on showing how much room there is with someone in the seat so you an idea of how much.

Personally, I like the flatter look of TeamND's cage. If I was using a flat style roof, I would have taken another 1-1.5" out. I could have still taken that much and been okay, but the roof would have started to get a little close. I started off with taking 3.5" and tacking it up, but would up taking another inch.

Just took 5" out of mine. I am 5'7" and still have plenty of room even with a helmet on. I used a pipe cutter to make the cuts and then sleeved the pipes internally and also rosebud welded the sleeves for strength. I ground down the welds on the tubes and brackets on the windshield and rotated the top down to get everything to line up with the angles in the rear part of the cage.

I still have a few more bars to add but you get the idea. This isn't a good shot to show the roof line. I should finish it up this weekend. I chopped it 5 1/2" in the rear.



Since I ride in the mountains I needed a place to carry a chain saw. Seems like trees are down across the trails a lot here. There just wasn't much room in the bed after a dry box, gas can and most importantly a cooler.

Excellent job Badride ..Definitely want to see finished product please, looks like the front is sticking out a little far on the sides.
