    Exo Cage..Hybrid Desert Buggy

    Messing around with a cage from a DBXL. I fitted the X-maxx Body Mount System to it so I can put it on and take it off just like the regular body.

    Overall the truck feels really solid when installed and Im able to pick it up by the roof with no issues. Plenty of clearance at full shock compression. I ordered the Dusty Cover because it will definitely need it even with some sheet steel panels on the cage.

    Not quite sure what to do with the nose just yet and thinking of possibly fitting a wing to the rear vs a spare tire as it sits way above the roof line.

    I'm doing this I been looking for something like this. I was about to custom build one. Thank you djmaincheese you saved me some patience and probably a week of my life lol. Though I'll use some aluminum to help with the rocks and mud from getting in along with the dusty motors cover. XD

    Direct bolt on in what way SlashMaxx,?
    If you're referring to how I attach it to the truck I used the stock X-Maxx body mounting system and integrated it with this cage so it works exactly the same as stock body would.
