    I decided to Build a safety rack to protect my cab because I am always Hauling stuff, plus I think the look cool. It took me and my dad about a day an a half to build. It didn't cost me anything because my dad had the steel tubing and I got some mesh off my Uncle. I took a ton of pictures:

    That's pretty dad gum neat. I might consider building one of those for my dodge. I do agree, they make it look a little more aggressive.:drinkup: Nice fab work.

    the only bad part is when you accidently sling some mud on the back window......

    i had one that was bolted when i did a lot of firewood and it saved me a bunch of windows... that one looks like it can be removed faster... nice job
