Loggerbox exocage thoughts?
Well, I will soon be the owner of a logger box and a new cab/clip and I'm trying to brainstorm ideas of what I should do to protect the unrusted/dented fenders that will be going on the beater.
My main question here would be if I'm asking for trouble designing a cage that comes off the front bulkhead of the loggerbox, goes over the cab and then ties into somesort of solidly mounted front bumper.
I know I'll need many other braces but do you guys think I'll run into problems rigididly incorporating the logger box and the frame like this?? I know the body twists around quite a bit so it must be allowed to move someway, but this logger box is pretty darn rigid, and is directly bolted to the frame.
Anyone got any input as to if this is a bad idea or not?? Is this gonna introduce a lot of internal forces in the frame and cage as it tries to twist???
Sorry for the long post, and I hope I explained what I mean to do well enough.
Thanks for any input.
