So Cal Eriks New set up!!
Well, after many weeks of work and not posting here due to lack of spare time I'm finally able to post pics of the new 3 (future 4 seat)seat setup with bed delete(aluminum bed). It didn't come out exactly how I planned, but hopefully you guys like it. It is definitely a compromise from my original idea of having the rear down tubes come straight from the b pillars to the top of the hoop bumper. I was going for the look of the SDR 2+2 setup but my kid is too big for the tiny seats that theirs had in it. I have it set up for my kid to grow into the back area until he can ride up front with me. I am developing a rear storage wing with rear lights for it, but as for now these are the pics I have.
Overall I have shaved around 100 lbs or so off the back end over the previous 4 seat cage and setup that I used to have. My new bed weighs in at 44 lbs. I did some testing last weekend with it and had to put 400 lb springs in the rear and took out the 475 lb springs. The new setup worked way better than my old setup did both in cornering and through whoops. I was also able to climb up steeper dunes that my friend in his 4 seater couldn't and that I couldn't climb with my previous 4 seat setup.
Big thanks to Davin at DG rhinos for building my cage. Also a big thankyou to 07fj (Rog) for helping me with my bed delete.
