Like the cage especially since you have the ribbed roof like me. Is that a P&P unit? Can you post pictures of the internal structure of the cage so I can see where the bars go?
TIA

Safety Devices cage. D90 is going to be in the shop to start the tear down within the next few weeks. I'll try to get pics up of the cage and add a build thread on here.

Surprised. Even SD told me their cages don't fit on externally Ribbed vehicles

Small modifications are necessary. Center rib had to be "dented" to allow cross bar to not make contact.

I am curious myself, but he did also say his vehicle is going to be torn down here soon, so hopefully it didn't suffer some catastrophic failure:

I can't speak of the details of the show.

However, I will say, that all episodes should be watched.

The D90 would be in the shop this time of year regardless of the show, getting a mid winter freshen up.

I just put it on the TiVo, just god please don't let it be a "fake drama" reality TV show. Just some true offroading.

Haha have you watched any of this so called reality ? It's all about drama . But it will have real wheeling with real stucks etc , but will there be some real drama I'm sure lol . The places these guys went was absolutely amazing ! Just watching for the trucks and the back ground will be enough I'm sure . I wheel these places and to see them on a large screen is incredible .
