Default Looking for fab shop

Hi I'm new here to Texas and was looking for any good fab shops to do a full cage in my race truck and possibly driveline loops. Any shops that you recommend?

I have a set of DHD drive line loops I'm looking to sell. It's a full set powder coated wrinkle red.

I really like how it handles, it corners very good and has no body roll. I don't have coil overs on the rear, I still have all the oem leaf springs.

I'd like 700 plus shipping on the drive line loops. OBO

I'll let you know in a few days. Was the front coilovers worth the work and cost?

I really like them, I feel it was worth the work and cost for what I do with the truck. I Don't race with my truck, it's a street toy. Not sure if I'd use them in sled pulling. It rides like a sports car for how big and heavy the truck is. I'm lowered abt 4 in the front and 5 in back.

And lossing the torsion bars and hardware that goes along with that is a lot of weight. I don't know the exact number.

I'd break the rear loose at 80.
