    Are you wanting a full cage or not?? How much are you willing to spend on one?

    for bashing u won't be to concerned about weight then get the full cage..........also the cage that i have the customer service with them is just amazing..........i won't go to far into it but i liked the cage before...now i'm going to try to get everyone i know to get them....(hmmm maybe i should be a dealer... )



    anyways......the cowboy creations cage is great and lighter than most other e-bay full cages and just as strong if not stronger

    Has anyone ever thought of making a cage out of the small diameter PVC Piping? would be lightweight and possible as strong as a metal one

    Yeah, I've never seen PVC much smaller than 1/2 inch. And PVC would be nowhere near as strong as steel, it would shatter on the first big drop. Aluminum would be close to as strong as steel, but it would flex alot. I've seen a few Titanium cages, but they're pretty price, I got mine for $15 off ebay, Ti cages are around 120 for a full cage. Mine was cheap, and I can stand on it when it's not on the truck, so I didn't see the need to pay all that extra when my cage can support almost 200lbs on it.

    I made my own out of 3/16" steel(i think) And it does great, it dont ever bend!(the scratches on the cooling head protector came before I put my roll cage on)
