90 Truck Cab and 3/4 canvas top

I'd like to add a truck cab to my 1997 ST and then cover the rear with a canvas top (Mark Letorney at RN did this on a project 90 without rollcage some time ago. Curious if anyone knows if this can be done without having to totally remove or rework the NAS rollcage?

I don't know but it sounds like it would look cool!

Looks like they took the cage out.

I don't know how functional that front roll cage is on that RN truck, but as you could see, the rear NAS roll cage was taken out in favor of the hood sticks. I would think the first hoop behind the driver and pass seats will be in the way of the truck cab at the least. If you can find a way around that, I'm sure Badger can design you a hood that will wrap around your safari cage. Good luck!

BTW, that is a cool looking 90 - very british-like.

Yeah I like the look and function alot. The RN version has the center bulkhead too, as opposed to the NAS bar behind the seats. That's what the cab seals against.

Isn't that truck still for sale? I talked to him about that rig a year or so ago.

I think it's worth a try. I believe Ron Peppard bought Dave Lucas' old half cab setup, although he had a custom roll bar on it.
