    No, I'm going to Herculine the inside of the tub first, along with my tube fenders. So I need to finish the fenders and prep them and the tub for the Herc.

    And of course, I ran out of gas for the MIG right away this morning.

    I went with a larger (size S) tank like yours, and still have the small one for 'traveling' with the welder.

    Got the tub and fenders Herc-U-Lined, and got the cage in and fenders on.











    The cage is mounted to the tub, (sandwiched with 4x4'' plates on top and 5x5'' on bottom) Ready to be tied into the frame. Really wanted to drive it home tonight, and start getting some miles on the rebuilt engine and new gears/lockers.

    However it decided to start raining, and the temps are around 20 and dropping. Didn't want to take it out with the salt on the roads, not to mention I'm not used to driving with a locker in the rear, it's squirrely enough without freezing rain!

    Thanks guys! I put the top on this week, it fits great! Really tucked up tight into the top.







    Now I just have to tie it into the frame. I plan on using the tops of 2 old main hoops for 'nerf bars', and tying the cage into those.

    I finally got around to tying the cage to the frame. I used the top portions of two CJ rollbars for 'nerfbars' (fit perfect!) and tied the cage into the bars.

    A pillar tie in:



    B pillar tie in:



    Nerf bar to frame:



    I stil need to tie in the back, or C pillar mounts.

    The cage sandwiches the tub, using 4"x4" plates on top and 5"x5" plates on the bottom, to avoid the 'can opener' effect. There are three 7/16'' grade 8 bolts at each plate. I can feel some vibration transferred up through the seats, but nothing bad fo a CJ
