Replace the cage
« on: December 28, 2018, 09:24:29 AM »
Not sure if I can get some more room by replacing the cage , but any Idea how much it would cost ? It maybe easier to do the entire thing , but could just the front tube and the side tubes be replaced ? I'm in SOCAL

Every bit of $400 if you're lucky.
And you remove the old cage yourself.

I just had my roll cage redone to raise it a few inches and I supplied the pre-bent tubing from Mark Williams, around $350 funny car style, and had a local chassis guy cut the old cage off and fit and welded the new cage at a specific location and the chassis guy charged me $500 and did it in 2 days.
