It only hurts when the bone starts to show, so walk it off.

Here it is right after the roof came off.

tell me what you think.

I am still needing to cut the top of the door frame off. close the pillars, finish the windshield, and cage the whole rig. ALso need to add a support brace tot he rear quarter panel right behind the door to stiffen the wall.

Thanks for the look and the opinion

You will need to support the windshield frame for sure. If cut the doors you should remove the door glass since there will be nothing to support those either. Looks like you will need a lift with those tires unless you cut the fenders too. Nice clean start though. Good luck!!

definatly keep the pics comming, that was the next idea I had for mine. you will need a roll bar now, that is the only thing holding me back from getting out the swazaw again.

I like the look man! Could you post a close up of the cage meeting the windshield frame? Are they tyed together or does the cage go down just inside of it to the floor? I'm really wanting to chop my top off, but trying to decide between full chop or back-half chop.
