Complete custom roll cage built by BNS fabrication known for their custom work for desert and rock crawling trucks. Cage is fully painted to match the match the body and rolled to the roof line. Door bars are bent to be protective and follow the occupants sitting position allowing for easy entrance and exit of the car.
Cage ties to a custom front strut tower brace. The brace can be unbolted from the cage to remove the gas tank.

Front is coli over sleeves that are fully adjustable in ride height. The current stance is set in the middle. The can go about an 1 inch lower without further modifications. After that you need to notch frontend and section the control arm to clear the steer arm or convert to a 71-73 front suspension.
Coils are very stiff up front, if you are lowered car person this is just part of the tradeoff for this stance.
