I have done some searching here and most of the posts are pretty dated with regards to cage systems that still allow you to dump the bed to perform maintenance, etc.

I have a stock 11 700, well not so stock any more, and I am looking to:

1) Keep the factory cage,
2) Have a bolt-on rear cage that maximizes space and
allows the bed to dump with the cage still on.

From what I can tell, there is considerable arguement as to the safety of the bolt-on rear cage. For the most part, and what most people state, I would only be cruising with passengers in the rear from 5-25MPH. No jumping or BS like that. Knowing that poo poo happens all the time and Mr. Murphy and his law always get in the way, I still would like as safe as possible.

I have a budget of $1300, this includes shipping, and I need the cage, seat and safety harness. Looking for a good deal and I am in the Phoenix, AZ area.

Can someone point me in the right direction and provide feedback?

I have looked at Rhino Giant but what I can't tell is what I have to remove to actually tilt the bed. I would dread having to spend 20-30 minutes on just the cage alone to perform an oil filter change.

Yeah that is true, I can't tilt my bed either without taking the cage off, changing the oil filter is easy without tilting, its the cleaning of the a arms and everything else after playing in mud that I don't like. Could have sworn I say one on rhinogiant. Might have been yamaharhino.com or another site. I'll look around and post if I find it again.

Check out fergfab.com, the gen 3 bolt on looks sweet, don't know if that is what you would be interested in, but it might be worth an email or a call to question the strength of it in a roller. Hope this helps.

Or worth the drive down to take a look since I am in the Phoenix area. I am intrigued but I wish one of these sites would work and have the latest information! :aargh4:

Other than the 8.8% tax, I think I would save $$ vs. the shipping from CA or UT.

Thanks for finding this and I'll let everyone know what I find.
