This forum is geared mostly towards racing, so you probably are not going to get many answers to your question because nobody uses a roll cage for racing. You might be able to get more help with building a roll cage on a rock crawler specific forum, as they tend to build their own cages. Here is a cage that Integy makes for the Rustler, you might be able to modify it to fit your truck. Here is a link to the Integy cage
Also a pic of the cage from an SC8.

The SC8 cage goes on to the body posts. I hope this helps.

hahahaha you know i never thought about going into the rock crawling section but yes it helps a ton. Iv got a duratrax evader ext and i think it might work and i guess i could just modify it a little bit. but i just want one for when im messing around so i dont kill my truck
