My new cage, a little different

I use my rhino for trail exploring, low speed mostly with wife and dog, in the desert during winter, and Utah mountains during the summer. I have looked into 4 seat cages for about a year now, but nothing seemed to fit the bill. What I wanted in a cage was swing-out back to allow my 12 year old lab to still be able to get in, cooler rack and mount for my gas can, tie in for my Seizmik tire rack on front, GPS mount for XOG on crossbar, and expanded metal roof to allow me to tie things such as folding chairs, etc, on top for day trips. Wanted to be able to use my overhead organizer, and current Seizmik light bar, as it folds to fit in toyhauler. Also, wanted removable back seat for a couple trips a year with grandson, or friends kids.
I talked to Dale at H Town Performance in Henderson, NV, and basically described my ideas to him. Long story short, I have new cage and think it came out excellent for what I need. Only took a little over a week, including powder coating, and is fantastic for what I needed. Swing-out back works great, no rattles, and is very secure when closed. Also added 4 point harnesses in place of stock belts.

H Town

Dale did an excellent job of putting my wild ideas into reality. It's one thing to think it, and another to be able to build it. The project was worth every penny, and H Town was great to work with. I have another project in mind for a front bumper, and will be having Dale build it when I'm ready.

Thanks dadofdj! I'm glad you like it, and I'm sure you have already put it to work. It's always nice to do something different, makes me have to think a little harder. When you are ready for that bumper just let us know!
Thanks for all the comments guys!
