the NAS 110 cage doesn't but they have other cages that will fit a ribbed roof. There is also the internal cage that might fit.

Are you saying PP makes a cage for the series?

Ok so an external front hoop might tie in to an internal rear cage?

no I'm not saying it will fit a series, just saying that they are made for a ribbed roof which is your first hurdle. Second hurdle is fitting it to the truck, you should just it done here and we can make you a full custom cage to your spec

See Mudsux build thread under build ups and restorations. He and Paul Clay both installed internal cages with a front external hoop that should work in a 109. Possibly the hump in the rear wheel wells inside would be an issue but that's a question for SD.
That or have Brian who is relatively close make you a cage guaranteed to fit and look great.

Bill, Ok no exo but maybe a partial ?

I am striking out, nothing has worked out for a bumper design and not this too. my out of the box thought ( remember a box has 12 sides) was that IF i installed an external front hoop cage then a bumper with brush hoop might look much improved.

Oh yeah it will, especially if you powder coat it neon green.

Always a fall back IF i go this route or build it myself since I have the equipment.
But I was looking for a more smple approach

How did you know what color my truck will be? Now I need to pick a new color

If I could just find a computer model of a series then I could model in a design to share, I stuck drawing out on a board, good thing I still have my sliderule

SD has nothing for D90 with Ribbed roofs.

P&P is the only place to accommodate Ribbed Roof afaik
