    Roll Cage

    Before the winter is over I hope to bend up a roll cage for the K5. I'm wondering what some people have. I'm not going into extreme wheeling but I want to have a decent cage. I plan on some dune riding and the state requires at least a roll bar if you have passengers in the back.
    So let see those cages. . .

    i only know of 3 people on this site with a cage. BiggsChevys and HeavyMetal are the active ones. i have a bender now, but no tube.

    a google search for k5 blazer cage will show many results.

    s&w race cars, and eoronline.com make weld-together cages for blazers.

    Thanks for the info . . . I thought there would have been more caged blazers on here. I have tube but no bender. Friend of mine has a bender but he's not local. I have to get it at least a rolling chassis to get it on a trailer.

    BigKing - That's what I wanted to see! I was curious how it looks and mounted up in the dash area. Of course yours is a 1st Gen model. I like it!

    Thanks!
