Had fun this weekend fabbin up a roll cage in a buddy's 06 Jeep LJ. Sweet looking rig when we were done.

We started with the stanchions that I drew up in cad and had laser cut. As with any new drawing it had bugs and needed to make a few mods.

It still needs to be painted, but all in all a wicked rollcage.

And yes it's 1018 Sch40 astm-A535 erw tubing, for those that are going to ask.

You know your benders. Ya it's a JD2 and altho it needs to have a longer handle for better leverage, I wouldn't get anything else.

Can you get pipe dies for the jd benders? I just have a 1.75 tube die and am looking to get some more variety

Yeah all the way up to 2". And great selection of radius's as well, but they ain't cheap. Even my 1" die was 300 with tax

or kms tools locally.

i was reading that Tmr or pro tools makes a "new pipe/tube die" thats stronger and crack resistant or some shit. says they will do both types of material. and moly up to 1 7/8's or sum shit.

there dies were like 100-150 less than the jd2 but work with the bender.

Fuck my tube kinker, i need a upgrage [cheers]
