All safety concerns must be taken up with the chassis shop involved with the project.  

  Once finished these cabs look exceptional and should just about last forever, however, sit down and Please give some serious thought before ordering........We prefer that our customers be confident & educated in the amount of work required to complete this project and secure in the choice that you make.

One Piece Front Ends do need the rear fender panel to be cut in order to utilize the hinge kit

    Wheel wells cannot be completely attached to the front end as they will interfere with engine &

IMPORTANT - Please specify the type of racing that the unit will be used for, so we may build and reinforce your unit accordingly. Units manufactured for "Mud Bog" racing have a heavier roving on all edges to reduce the chance of tearing (under to stress of impact and mud load) and usually weigh 
10 - 15# more than a Drag Racing unit.  Units manufactured for "Sand Drag" or "Baja" style racing are built so as to be midway between the Street Drag and the Mud Bog units.
