Truck cage got started today!
As a guy that likes to do everything himself it was a really odd decision to let someone else work on it for me. Up until this point I had done all fabrication, ring and pinion setup, electrical, literally everything.
But when it came to the frame and the cage I knew I was at the edge of my limited talent. I’ve done roll cages before but for lightweight rock crawlers doing 10mph and back then it was just me inside.
Now I have a truck that goes fast in the desert and my whole family is inside.
After a ton of research and consideration I decided to let @morganclarkedesign1 at @kalikustomsinc get his hands on my truck.
This is a fabricator I’ve looked up to and followed for a long time. His work always blows me away.
I dropped it off with 3 rules.
1. I want is safe
2. I need the frame fixed stronger than stock
3. Build it however you would want to build your next truck.
I have given him the freedom to pretty much build whatever he wants as long as it fits 4 @prpseats inside when it’s done.
I’m excited to see what he comes up with! As strange as it is to see my project in someone else’s hands I know this decision will not be regretted!! 2013 Raptor Sporting:

The raptor got a lot of goodies this week. First driving down to Phoenix to grab the new @addoffroad pro bumper. @visionxusa hooked it up with a bar and some gen2 cannons. Ending it with a @milleroffroaddesign_tx brake light and @sdhq spare tire mount
