Wrench 58 dollar cage extension

I have built a cage extension for a little less than 58 dollars, just thought i would share that with you guys. Finished today. I have the lengths and peices needed, i will scan it and put it on here if anyone is interested. Surprised with how easy it actually was. I got a 21 foot length of 1 1/2 inch pipe .133 thick, and 6 short 90s, 2 peices of 1/4 inch plate 12 inchs long by 3 1/2". 2- 4 1/2" x 3/8"bolts and 8- 5/16 x 1" bolts. It weighs about 50lbs.58 dollar cage extension-rhino-before-cage-done-3-.jpgbefore the cage.58 dollar cage extension-rhino-cage-welding-grind-done-4-.jpgDone the welding and grinding58 dollar cage extension-rhino-cage-done-1-.jpgAll done and painted. Cant upload drawing with sizes. 2 - 38 1/2", 2 - 23", 2 - 12" peices. Hope this helps someone else. Got a roof bent for it aluminum, about 150. Total investment less than 250.

Havent rolled it or tipped it yet luckily, hopefully that doesnt happen. I did mount it to the bed inside at the back. Theres 4 1/4"x1" bolts through the inside of the bed from the outside behind fender skin. I cut the bars off and am going to insert nipples and weld them in tnside the tubing to make it possible to have a quick remove top. heres some pics so far, havent had time to do anymore yet.58 dollar cage extension-troys-cell-pics-048.jpg[ATTACH]58 dollar cage extension-troys-cell-pics-046.jpg[/ATTACH] Hope these help paint a picture for you guys, its pretty easy to line up with these pipe fittings.

Ya sorry theres two cross beams, i think they were 43", so 8 peices total. Got nipples in and drilled through and installed 3/8 pins to make quick disconnect on rear. Got to work front disconnects out for quick removal, will post pic when done. Got seat now too, 50 bucks 89yj rear seat, fits perfectly.
the 38's are the top two, 23's are the rear uprights, 12's are the peices that mount to plates that bolt to box.

Where did you get the 90 in town or you order them. Ones I seen were like $15 bucks a piece. This is exactly what I would like to build.
