Yay, I figured it out :)

I have been thinking about it for ten years, but I couldn’t get a workable ‘tube run’ that missed everything.  

The idea is that a big roll feeds the mass of the engine and front axel into the roll bar. The bar has a bend so it isn’t a pokey shock load on the front hoop. Trees will ride over the cage better. The outriggers have less to do, as does the bolted in cross member that ties them together. 

The chassis section can be reduced to bend the radius arm away from the tyre. (Max steering travel without wide rims and spacers)

Yep, it might work okay with enough bracing :D

I mean, it’ll work great as long as it doesn’t crumple up... Anyhoo, I haven’t had to butcher the truck to try it :)

Wow a long time ago :o 1992/3 maybe. Just after body removal and before hacking the rangy bits off the chassis.

edit; I think that is just after it was shortened by 14”. We kept the outriggers on to use as measuring points.

It came out well for a hole saw and grinder part :)

basically an adapter to turn one master cylinder port into two.
