new to the 4x4 thing

Hey everyone im kinda new to all of this but im trying to build a rock crawler and i already have an engine im rebuilding and i think it will be fine but im trying to figure out the body and frame. I have a guy that said he could sell me a racecar cage and i didnt know if i could modify it enough to work. If anyone has any prior experience with something like this i would greatly appreciate some help.

Sure it'll work. You should probably find out if it is a drag car cage, a stock car cage, or a roll cage for a truck. Each one will have different dimensions and be shaped differently, but hey, a chop saw, grinder, welder (and probably a torch) with a little imagination, and any of the three could work. Don't get me wrong, it'll be some work and you will have to find a good steel yard for parts and pieces. It will be worth the effort when you fire it up and rip around the local trails. Good luk. Oh yea, one more thing check out the rags with 4x4's and rock buggies on the cover. I have noticed the local part stores are starting to have a good selection. Once again good luck.
