Imagine that with a D90 rear overhang instead of D110 length.

Not one of ours. We make something like that called the SR110, but we use the Euro style soft top so that the 110 can be hard top or soft top for winter/summer use. Plus I think the gap between the hoops is too far in the cargo area, that is why we never have done that type of layout. Its a cool looking rig for sure though.

Yea I realized it wasn`t one of your builds- i have been following those on your website, it`s just reminiscent of the SR.

If the sole purpose of the rear of the cage it to support the soft top, I don't see an issue with it like that. If it were to serve as a cage for the rear passengers, then I see issues.

Seeing that the cage was extended makes me wonder how they accomplished the "padding" on the bars. I've been wanting for some time to do something about the padding that's falling off of mine and haven't found a good solution.

It is a round pipe, they did not match the factory shape.

That must look different. Has anyone figured out how to either re-pad the bars or some other solution?

That's Jase 's truck. He's on this forum- I saw it in the "wanted" section with a hardtop cab. It looks good as a pickup.

Correct, its round tubing that has been Rhino'd. Rhino pressure can be adjusted to create a texture, the texture on the bars looks very close to the stock cage. The coated tube width is dead on, the height (vertical thickness) is off because the stock is oval and this was diffucult to repeat. Still looks good, even up close. The bars are much heavier that the stock, but its long way from the B to C hoops. The bars would likely out survive the B and C hoops.

The Pick-up rear cage is superior to the NAS cage. All DOM and Frame mounted via Safety Device mounts. This rear set-up could have been made stronger but I like the way it uses the NAS mounting points on the rails.

Jase, why are you selling?? If I could, I would re-re-finance my house to get the 110, the 90 needs a brother since the unimog left.
