Default Picture of my setup

These are what is on my phone. This has been on my truck for a couple of years now and like Logan said it actually came out of a rolling chassis I bought from John Powell on this site. I have been 10.24 with it and have been through tech without any issues with it but I cannot guarantee you will not have issues. I cut it out of the other truck and put it in my street truck because it was so nice and non-invasive for daily driving when you take the door bars out. I love it honestly and it works for me.

I just had two NHRA officials in my shop yesterday to cert two chassis's. One is a 7.5 cert cage for my El Camino that has no back bars but we built it for 25.4 cert and is very extensive and not a great set-up for a street truck (full funny car cage around driver).

I had them look at a 6 point bar we built for a 10 second camaro. The biggest issue they had was that the rear bars need to be no lower than 5" from the top of the main hoop. So those pics of Marks bar would never pass tech here. The rules don't say what min. angle of the rears bars need to be, but there are other specs that need to be followed. Roll bars down to 10.00 don't need to be certified, but still need to pass tech inspection. Tech seems to vary widely depending on the track and event. If you install a roll bar, you will need a 5 point harness and have to attach the seat to the cross bar. The cross bar needs to be within 4" of shoulder height with the seat attached.

My recommendation is to print off some of these pics and ask your local track tech their opinion. Our make a few drawings and let the tech take a look. Most techs are cool if asking before doing. This will save you a bunch of work in the long run.

Also please think about safety. After being in a wreck on the strip and having another very close call at 140+ mph, i'd rather error on the safe side. These are heavy trucks. We over built Max'd Outs cage using 2" and more bars/gussets then required and i still don't think that it is safe enough at the speeds it obtains. Although i'm getting old, lol.

Seriously, i've been racing all kinds of vehicles for a long time and have see some bad stuff happen. I've also seen people walk away from some ugly crashes when their safety equipment is done well. That is my .02 from an old safety conscience guy.

Couldn't agree more with you bud! What I have works for me since I'm not going any further with it, but may not work for others. It is definitely better than nothing.

Mark, does your bar attach to the frame or just the body?

Both actually as the rear outside bars have a bar under the cab that is welded to the frame to tie it all together to the frame and it really stiffened up the frame and cab feel.

Here's some pics of my half ton, 7.50 cert cage. I didn't get any of the nerf bars under the cab that tie in the cage to the frame.

Well, I got bitten by it last night and got the boot for mine. Was told it was only good for 11.49 without the support bars. Have had it in the truck for two years and have made faster passes with it but this was the first time someone said anything about it. Now I get to decide if I really want to get my 9sec pass and make it not fun to drive on the street anymore or just enjoy it as it is or sell the whole thing and get a fishing boat!

Go make one hell of a pass then get kicked out, easiest way to do it haha.

Honestly tho, with the way the diesel performance industry is going my bet is on a reeeeaaaaallllly nice fishing boat being more fun in the end.

I don't get this. Maybe it's because I just enjoy my hobbies and not get as serious as y'all, but other then the fact I got to much money invested is something I don't get to use enough (like all hobbies). I have do desire to get rid of my diesel.
