Updates: yesterday my brother got a brand new set of 31-10.50 KM2s so I had alot more traction, added dual front shocks. Worked well.

Thanks. I will try to get some pics of roll cage we built, which was actually using parts from cage I had in my Ranger I raced last year, sold my bender and trying to use of steel we had, but I think it turned out good.
